Support for IBM Content Analytics with Enterprise Search on VMWare

Technote (FAQ)


Question

Is IBM Content Analytics with Enterprise Search ( ICAwES) supported on VMWare?

Answer

  • IBM Content Analytics with Enterprise Search is supported on VMWare ESX V4.x and V5.x.
  • We support issues which can be reproduced on physical servers. That means we can not resolve issues caused by compatibility issue of VMWare.
  • In general, the performance of ICAwES will be degraded if it runs on a VM because ICAwES requires both CPU and disk IO. We do not recommend the use of VMWare if performance is critical.
