VMware vSphere 4.1 Update 1 - Supported platform, non-hardware.
Sufficient processing power equivalent to a 3 GHz Intel Xeon must be dedicated to the PGP Universal Server virtual machine.
 
VMware Tools must be installed and configured in the PGP Universal Server operating system.
VMware ESX 4.1 Update 1 is certified without vMotion.
 
Disk space requirements:
 
·         Small/medium environment - 50 GB minimum allocated to the VMware instance; 4 GB RAM dedicated to the VMware instance.
 
·         Medium/large environment - 100 GB minimum allocated to the VMware instance; 8 GB RAM dedicated to the VMware instance.
 
VMware vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi) 4.1 Update 1 with VMotion Support - Supported platform, non-hardware
 
VMware HA Configuration: Host Monitoring - Enabled; VM Monitoring - Disabled; Application Monitoring -
Disabled VMware DRS Configuration: Migration Automation Level - Fully automated; Power Management
Automation Level - Off; Migration Threshold - Apply all recommendations.
 
Although a broad array of other hardware may work well with PGP Universal Server, PGP Universal Server has been
tested with, and is compatible with, the systems in this list.
Note: PGP Universal Server supports additional memory beyond the minimum requirement but not exceeding 16 gigabytes.
 
To qualify as PGP Universal Server Certified Hardware, the server must be one of the versions listed and all components must be configured as specified. For Support purposes, if you change the sizes of hard disks in the same type of drive (for example, 36 GB SCSI to 73 GB SCSI), increasing memory configurations and processor speeds in the same type and family qualifies as the same system.
