Virtualization Platform Support

This page describes the virtualization platforms that have been tested and verified to interoperate with each listed Genesys product. The following tables provide references for Genesys products that were tested by Genesys.

  • Virtualization may increase the processing load compared to native deployment on a given node. You should follow the recommendations and best practices discussed in the virtualization platform vendor's documentation.
  • You should be aware of potential impact to performance and voice quality when deploying components that interface with RTP media streams, including Stream Manager, Genesys Voice Platform (GVP) Media Control Processor, and CPD Server. Although these components operate in a virtual environment, in some cases it may be necessary to limit call rates to achieve acceptable voice quality.
  • It is strongly recommended that you test the proposed configuration under simulated production conditions, to ensure acceptable sizing and performance. For other questions, contact Customer Care using their Care portal.
Important
The Citrix Workspace product names are changed as follows:
  • XenServer to Citrix Hypervisor
  • XenApp to Citrix Virtual Apps
  • Xen Desktop to Citrix Virtual Desktops

For other questions, contact Customer Care using their Care portal.

Notes:

  • For ESXi, note the following:
    • ESXi 6.x covers all 6.x releases, including ESXi 6.0, 6.5, 6.7 and so on.
    • For ESXi 6.x support with Windows Server 2016, refer to the respective product SOE (Supported Operating Environment Reference) page in this document to determine the versions that support Windows Server 2016. If the versions in that page are higher than the versions identified in this table, use one of those versions. Otherwise, use the one of the versions specified in this table for that product.
    • Operating systems listed are for VMware support. Specific product support of the OS may be different. Please check the product operating system tables for OS supported by a specific product.

Genesys Info Mart   8.5.016.01+ Genesys does not test all platforms and operating systems. Except for VMware known issues between ESXi 6.x and ESXi 7.x, Genesys Info Mart expects no issues with ESXi 7.x hypervisor on the other operating systems on which ESXi 6.x hypervisor was supported -- namely, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Server 2016. The expectation is based on the following facts:
  • Genesys Info Mart support for the ESXi virtualization platform was previously verified on these operating systems.
  • Recent testing verified support for ESXi 7.x, if only on a single operating system.
  • Because Genesys Info Mart is a Java-based application, there are unlikely to be operating system dependencies.

VMware Support Notes:
  • For products that require specialized cards (for example, Dialogic), you should rely on the card vendors and VMware for support and optimization.
  • Genesys does not support VMware's Virtual Infrastructure or Application and Infrastructure management products except as indicated in this table.
  • Best practices that have been defined by VMware and Genesys should be followed when implementing VMware virtualization. Refer to the Genesys Deployment on VMWare - Best Practices.
  • If license control is performed in a virtualized environment, either by running a FlexNet Publisher license server on virtual platforms or by using node-locked application license files, the host-id value returned by the virtual platform is used.
  • When using MAC addresses, it may be necessary to override the default and force the virtual platform to use a static (fixed) MAC address to avoid problems when virtual images are moved between physical machines. See FlexNet Publisher documentation on virtualization deployment for further details: http://support.flexerasoftware.com/main/Default.aspx.
  • For other questions on deployment using virtualization, contact Customer Care using their Care portal.
