Can Pharos Uniprint 9.0 R2 run in a virtualized enviorment?
If you are looking for the short answer, it is yes. The long answer involves details along with the general gist of a warning that VMs are more difficult to troubleshoot when the issue resides not in the VM but in the underlying infrastructure of your virtual environment. Over-allocated resources, low disk space on a LUN, I/O limitations, overworked sys admins, and other such situations can complicate Pharos' life on a VM. Many customers either have personnel with the expertise to handle these VM specific issues, or have planned their VM deployment wisely and avoided the pitfalls altogether. I would say that I have dozens of customers operating in virtual environments without issue, and it certainly makes the migration portion simple when you need to retire old hardware or when a lease expires.
Thank you Steven.
