    Is there an official statement from Microsoft for "Virtualization and OCS 2007"? Is this an supported scenario to deploy Edge and Front-End on Virtual Server 2005 R" or VMware?

  • The official statement from the supportability guide is:

     

    Virtualization is not supported for any server role in a production environment.

  • Hello,

     

    I am not aware of an official statement. However in our lab testing it worked fine for about 150 simultaneous users. We did not try any higher user number…but I think it could easily scale for a larger number of concurrent users.

     

    We could even get PBX integration working fine without any issues.

  • Hmm.. that is a very brief statement that does not explain the "why." I would be interested to learn about why virtualization is not supported as that is running contrary to where servers are going --> blades running virtual sessions.

     

    Thanks,
