SIE System Requirements
We recommend that people use servers provided by us or our partner MFC, LLC. For specialized purposes, consider using recent 64-bit multi-core Intel or AMD processors with lots of RAM and server-grade gigabit network ports that support both VLANs and Jumbo Frames. We've had a good track history with Intel NICs (82541, 82571, 82575, 82576, 82579, 82580), but not with Broadcom NICs. One can always order an Intel Pro1000/PT Dual GigE card for an available the PCIe slot.
