VMWare Support

Historian provides support for VMware ESXi Server version 5.0 and above. The virtualization capability provided by VMware lets you run multiple virtual machines on a single physical machine, with each virtual machine sharing the resources of that one physical computer. Please be aware that while we have tested VMware ESXi 5.0 and above, issues with the VMware software or the virtualized environment are outside the scope of GE Digital's responsibility. You must use VMWare Compatibility Hardware and Software before installing Historian 7.0 or greater Data Archiver on a Virtual Machine. For the current release, the only supported type of Proficy licensing for use with VMware is keyless (software) licensing.
Note: VMware Player is not supported.
Important: Advanced features of ESXi Server (such as VMotion, High Availability, and Clustering support) have not been tested with Historian.
