Can I run Verde on ESX

Can I run Verde on ESX?

Product Line:  VERDE

VERDE uses the KVM hypervisor, which requires full access to the virtualization Technology (VT) feature of the server to run virtual desktops. VERDE cannot run on ESX.


1. You can run a VERDE Sever in Cluster Master and Gateway mode on virtualized hardware as a supported configuration. In those modes VERDE does not run virtual desktops.

2. In ESX 5.1 and Workstation 9, you can enable VT Pass-through for demonstration purposes. Although this enables running VERDE (including running virtual desktops), this is not a supported configuration. We do not provide support for pilots, POCs, or production environments running on VT Pass-through.
