Deploying System-800xa on hyperconverged platform
We have a mutual client that wants to deploy 800xa on a hyperconverged platform. They were told that hyperconverged is not supported in any case. Is this true? If so, why is it not an approved method?
I had to Google that first.
I'm afraid I have no good answer to provide here.
The amount of configurations that are supported is limited. Redundancy concepts offered in virtualized systems are difficult to match, test & approve with the built-in concepts of System 800xA. We're not talking about some simple web server here...
For the time being System 800xA need a set of "fixed" servers (physical or virtualized) to carry its server roles. With "fixed" I mean execution is not hot-swapped into another host or continent over a heartbeat.
I suggest asking your ABB regional sales representative to forward your request to product management for an official answer.
