Please note that a virtual environment will not be performant VS a physical server..

APOLLO can be resource intensive for a physical server, virtualization will only make APOLLO less responsive.

APOLLO and other Hexagon Geospatial products run in a virtual environments but may not provide the performance that is needed to consider it functional in a production environment.

I STRONGLY suggest evaluating any product in a Virtual environment for performance before putting it it into a production environment.
