Required Resources

The VirtualWisdom Virtual Edition, is packaged as an Open Virtual Appliance (OVA) file.

The following resources are required for deploying the Virtual Edition OVA file:

  • Supported VMware ESX: ESXi Version 6.0 or later

  • vCPU: 8

  • Memory: 64GB RAM

  • VMDK disk (hard disk): 1064 GB storage, thinly provisioned, with 160 MB/sec sustained R/W throughput minimum


    If the VMDK is not exactly 1064 GB, the update will not proceed. The VMware UI might display 1064 GB as 1.04 TB.

    Also, resizing the VMDK larger than 1064 GB will cause the update to fail, and the VMDK cannot be subsequently made smaller. If this happens, a new Virtual Edition VM will need to be deployed and data restored from backup.

    Note: You might need to shut down the VM to edit the disk size.

  • Required VM hardware: Version 11

  • Network connectivity to the infrastructure to be monitored
