Cisco Collaboration - Virtualization Support at a Glance

If you are deploying virtualized Cisco Collaboration as part of one of the following solution offers, you must visit the link for that solution first before reading further.

Virtual/Physical Sizing & Co-residency Plan/Design Workflow Implementation, Operation, Maintenance, Troubleshooting and Performance Monitoring Info Track Changes to this page or Leave a Comment


The table below is for convenience and is a snapshot summary only. When in doubt or if there is a conflict, check the product details page by clicking on the product name.

For a given application, this table only summarizes the indicated version (which is usually the latest version in a Unified Communications System Release Set ). 
For older versions or unlisted versions, check the product details page by clicking on the product name.


Caution Caution: Virtualized deployments of Cisco Collaboration must align with the criteria described in this wiki space to be TAC-supported. For other TAC support details, see Implement/Operate Info.

To communicate with Cisco or your peers on Cisco Collaboration support for virtualization, OS and servers:


Plan/Design Information

Use the following as a "workflow" to arrive at a design.

  • Start with sizing the UC apps by using the following links. This will determine which Collaboration apps you need, compatible versions and for each app how many UC virtual machines are needed and which virtual machine configurations to use.
  • Next, determine your virtual machine placement by using the following links. This will determine how many physical servers you need and which VMs will go on which physical servers.
  • Allowed co-residency policies of applications that you want to share a physical server
  • Virtual-to-Physical sizing rules for each app
  • Support policies in the product details pages (see At a Glance table at the top of this page).
  • Correct application versions for virtualization support
  • Supported virtualization software (vendors, products, versions)
  • Supported hardware options, and which virtual machine configurations are supported for different hardware options
Note Note: Mixed deployments of virtual, nonvirtual, Cisco-provided, and customer-provided servers are supported provided you follow all design guide rules, sizing tool rules and support policy rules on this site.
  • Next, pick the virtualization software (vendor, product, version, license option) using the following links.
  • Next, use the following links to see if you have any network considerations for LAN, QoS or storage access, or any DAS/NAS/SAN storage hardware design considerations.
