We stayed with physical hardware for the CCR cluster, but did use a VM for the Public Folder machine.  Giving it 2 CPUs and a bunch of memory it still seems a little under powered.  Just FYI for those that haven't done it yet, if your going to build a CCR cluster put your public folders on a seperate (non-clustered) machine before you start the install on the cluster.  We banged our heads on the wall for a long time until we figured out that the public folders store is the first one built and it cannot live on a cluster.

I think the worry “After Deploying the Cluster on Vmware how it reacts, stability and the support”

 

 

My suggestion is

 

* Keep the Mailbox Cluster on Physical Nodes

*Other Roles (Hub, CAS, Unified, and Edge) you can go for Virtualization.

*only the support you need to worry about, Because MS will not support if the cluster on Vmware.(3rd party Hardware virtualization MS will not support)

 

 

I feel if your company is MS partner, before you go and deploy just have a word with Microsoft about the support.

 

If you go with Vmware still you can use the HA option.

 

Cheers!!!

Many posters in these forums do not have English as their primary language; so we do try to cut them some slack. I certainly can’t speak Hindi or Punjabi or anything else (and I’m making a presumption based on the OP’s name that he is East Indian).

 

Generally, a “I don’t understand, could you ask it a different way?” is more tactful.

"We are thinking of this but every apprehensive about support and stability."

What does this sentence mean? And what kind of English is that? Try to explain it in simple English.
