Introduction

The Fortinet SDN Connector is a standalone connector that serves as a gateway bridging SDN controllers and FortiGates. The SDN Connector connects to SDN controllers within Nuage, polls interested objects, and translates them into address objects. You must configure a connection to the Fortinet SDN connector in FortiOS to query the dynamic addresses. The translated address objects and associated endpoints populate to the FortiGate.

If you plan to instantiate a large number of VMs in your SDN Connector environment, ensure you size the host VM or server appropriately. The following recommendations represent the minimum sizing numbers:

  • Memory: 4 GB
  • CPU: 2 vCPU
  • Disk: 20-50 GB
  • vNICs: 1
