Hardware Requirements for CSO/SDWAN

[ Edited ]

Hello,

We are getting ready for our first CSO SDWAN deployment. I have read through documentation but want to check on few points as this would decide whether we can use existing hardware or purchase new. I am familiar with minimum requirements listed in Juniper documentation but was wondering if lower specs would work for small 10-15 site deployment. 

1. CSO server. Are the specs listed here https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/cso4.0/topics/task/installation/cso-minimum-requirements... absolute minimum? Asking as requirements seem to be high, eg. small deployment needs 40vCPU and 224Gb RAM. Our current available blades have 192Gb RAM and 24CPUs. 

 

2. Can SRX 345 be used as HUB. All the docs I saw have SRX 1500 as the lowest HUB device.

Thank you
