Cisco UCS servers (blade or rack-mounted) are the only supported hardware platform for the virtual
appliance. VMware ESXi version 4.x and 5.0 are the only supported virtualization hypervisors. Any
other hardware platform or VMware hypervisor will be supported on a “Best Effort” basis: we will try
to help you, but it may not be possible to reproduce all problems, and we cannot guarantee a solution.
No other virtualization hypervisor is supported.
Cisco recommends that the server hosting your virtual appliances have the minimum requirement of two
64-bit x86 processors of at least 1.5 GHz each, 8 GB of physical RAM, and a 10k RPM SAS hard drive disk
