To operate as a virtual machine, an x360Recover appliance or vault requires support for nested virtualization from the host hypervisor environment, to allow for virtualizing systems for nightly boot checks, AutoVerify, and Recovery.
VMware ESX 5.5 and newer supports nested virtualization only for Intel processors. AMD-based servers are not supported for virtualizing x360Recover devices.
Prior to deploying x360Recover as a virtual machine, we recommend you schedule a call with Axcient x360Recover Support to assist with the deployment.
It is safe to deploy your self-hosted management portal as a virtual device provided sufficient resources are allocated to the device. A management portal should have at least 4GB of RAM, and a 100GB operating system disk. Disks may be thin provisioned.
