Virtual Mobility Controller as standalone ? status wanted

Hi there

 

Some of our customers whant to order a VMC instead of a physical controller.

 

I read some last year's posts that says it's not a good ID :

https://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Wireless-Access/Virtual-Mobility-Controller/m-p/264589

 

But i can't find any clear official status about this point.

 

Can someone tell me what is the supported use case for VMC ?

What can i tell to my customers who want to use them ?

 

Best regards

 

Pierre

vMCsupports a maximum of 1000 APs. If you have a network comprising less than that, you might go for virtualized environment. 

 

For larger networks (greater than 1000 APs I mean), you have to go for the Physical boxes.

 

Below datasheet for vMC might help you:

Thank you Jibran

 

Most of our coustomer's network are fare bellow 1000 Aps.

 

To be certain : con you confirm they can use VMC as a standalone controller, with no need for any backup / master anywhere ?
