Hi there,

Will it be possible to run VCS in virtualized environment? I heard some rumors but would like to know if there is anything on the roadmap, either as commited or uncommited upcoming feature?

Thanks,

Tenaro

Hi Tenaro,

Yes we will support this in the future. The X7.1 VCS software will support virtualization with VM Ware (ESX/vSphere). We expect this version to be publically released in February/March 2012 timeframe.

Best regards,

Arne

That's great news Arne - do you know if it will be able to run on standard hardware, or will it only be supported on Cisco UCS platforms as per CUCM?

Hi Nick,

I think we would recommend using the Cisco UCS platforms to be sure that the VCS runs smoothly. On the other hand, for test purposes etc., I have two VCS appliances running on a single Lenovo X61 laptop with ESX for “home use”. So there are no checks at the moment (in X7.0.1) for the hardware requirements, but this could change in X7.1.

The recommended hardware configurations per VCS VM is to have at least 6 GB of RAM dedicated, and a dual core processor assigned per VCS appliance.

Best regards,

Arne
