SGD Gateway Requirements and Support

This section contains the following topics:

Supported Installation Platforms for the SGD Gateway

The supported installation platforms for the SGD Gateway host are shown in the following table.

Operating System
Supported Versions
Solaris OS on SPARC platforms
At least Solaris 10 10/09
Solaris OS on x86 platforms
At least Solaris 10 10/09
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (32-bit and 64-bit)
5.5
Oracle Enterprise Linux (32-bit and 64-bit)
5.5

By default, the SGD Gateway is configured to support a maximum of 100 simultaneous HTTP connections and 512 simultaneous Adaptive Internet Protocol (AIP) connections. The JVM memory size is optimized for this number of connections. Appendix C of the Oracle Secure Global Desktop 4.6 Gateway Administration Guide has details of how to tune the Gateway for the expected number of users.

Virtualization Support

The supported installation platforms for the SGD Gateway are supported on a Type 1 (bare metal) hypervisor or a Type 2 (hosted) hypervisor, for example Oracle VM VirtualBox, VMWare, or Oracle VM Server for SPARC (previously called Sun Logical Domains or LDoms).

On Solaris 10 OS, installation in zones is not supported.

Retirements to Supported Gateway Installation Platforms

The following table shows the SGD Gateway installation platforms that have been retired.

SGD Version
Platforms No Longer Supported

SGD Server Requirements for the SGD Gateway

The following requirements apply for the SGD servers used with the SGD Gateway:

Apache Web Server

The Apache web server supplied with the SGD Gateway is Apache version 2.2.17. It includes the standard Apache modules for reverse proxying and load balancing. The modules are installed as Dynamic Shared Object (DSO) modules.

Supported Cipher Suites for SSL Connections
