Deployment options for 1000V

Hi Duane,

Yes, ESX/ESXi is required unless it is run on the 1010.

No, VMware Player is not a supported configuration.

Deployment options for 1000V

Hi Duane,

Here are some additional data points, hope they help.

1. A downloadable virtual appliance

> Yes, the VSM can be deployed as an OVF/OVA (as a VM)

2. Nexus 1010 physical appliance

> Yes, the VSM can be deployed a VSB (virtual service blade) on the Nexus 1010 physical appliance.

3. Installable ISO on a VM

> Yes

3. Installable on commodity server hardware

> Yes, any commodity server hardware that can run ESX/ESXi would be a valid choice for deploying a VSM VM.

Thanks,

Sachin

Deployment options for 1000V

Thank you for taking the time to answer! I just have one clarification.

So in the 4th option above, "Installable on commodity hardware", you have to install ESX and still run the 1000V as a VM?

I consider this the same as option 1 or 2.

Can the 1000V be installed on commodity hardware without ESX?  For instance, can it run on a Windows server?

Is it a supported configuration to run in VMWare Player?
