Can AccessData software be run in a virtual environment or virtual machine?
Yes, however there are some things to keep in mind:
- AccessData software running on virtual machines is often found to take about a 20% performance hit compared to running on a physical machine with the same specifications due to the overhead of virtualization.
- As with physical machines with faulty hardware, drivers, etc., AccessData cannot take responsibility for problems stemming from issues with the virtualization framework itself.
As such, we strongly encourages the use of physical hardware platforms in any implementation of the AccessData software. AccessData reserves the right, during the troubleshooting of a support issue, to withdraw support on a specific issue if it is found to be induced by virtualization.
