Cisco ISE Virtual Appliance HyperV Support

Hi,

ISE Virtual Appliance Supports VMWare ESXi as Hypervisor. Is there any Plan on the roadmap that ISE will be supported on HyperV (or possibly XEN) in the future, because some customers don't have VMWare but using only HyperV.

The same question may be for other Virtual Appliances as well such as vWAAS, vASA etc.

Best Regards,

This is a question that gets brought up to the Business Unit from time to time.  As of now, there are no plans on Official Cisco Support on any virtual platform other than VMWare's ESXi.

There have been successful implementations on HyperV, but if you run into issues, the first thing that will be noted is that you are running on an unsupported platform.

Hi Charles,

Thank you for the rapid answer. Due to HyperV increasing marketshare the demand on these deployments may increase. As for the branch and central deployment design using a physical appliance may be more feasible choice wrt managing and operating different hypervisors and difficulty of sharing resources in multiple hypervisor environments.

The tradeoff though is to increased cost to provide a seperate appliance for ISE, WaaS, WLC. For VMWare Sites UCS-E may be very good choice indeed.

Best Regards,

Agreed.  I also know that the Business Unit is gauging the interest in the HyperV implementation and when it makes sense to fully support it, they will.  However, the percentage of customers that are dead-locked in to the HyperV solution at this time remains very low.

UCS-E could be a good solution, if the infrastructure is in place.

Hi Charles,

Just adding my voice to the chorus - my team are working on a Azure project where the only hypervisor will be Hyper-V

Are there any updates to this request?
