Re: ERDAS IMAGINE Support Virtualization environments ..?!

ERDAS IMAGINE 2016 has been tested against several such technologies: Microsoft Application Virtualization 5.0.1104.0 and Citrix XenApp 6.5 and 7.6. While ERDAS IMAGINE 2016 is supported with Microsoft Application Virtualization, it is considered Viable with XenApp Session Virtualization.

 

Kind regards,

Hello Stephen,

 

I believe you are talking about ERDAS IMAGINE <Application Virtualization> and NOT tackling about the <server virtualization> part which is the main enquiry here., Something like (XenServer, VMware - vSphere, Microsoft Azure, Hyper-V, ...) etc.

 

So, any of these server-virtualization products is supported environment..?!

 

Thanks inadvance for your time..

Hello Ahmed,

 

ERDAS IMAGINE is not supported in a server virtualization environment. Do you mind if I ask how you would plan to use server virtualization with ERDAS IMAGINE?

Hi Stephen;

 

Appreciating your quick response, 

 

On the othre hand, the propsed solution based on (batch processing) using spatial models into ERDAS IMAGINE., and the available environment platform was (virtual servers) instead of physical machines,

 

So with refer to your technical reply, we'll move to physical workstation platform,  

 

Thanks again for your valuable response

Warm Regards,

Ahmed Abdelaziz
