System requirements

Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure works on top of commodity hardware, so you can create a cluster from regular servers, disks, and network cards. Still, to achieve the optimal performance, a number of requirements must be met and a number of recommendations should be followed.

For production, you can run Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure on a physical server, or inside a virtual machine to use backup storage in a public cloud. In any other case, deploying Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure inside virtual machines is only supported for evaluation purposes. The hardware requirements and recommended number of servers in a cluster depend on the services you will deploy.

If you are unsure of what hardware to choose, contact your sales representative.
