  • Yes though I personally don't always recommend it. If you do find and follow the Lync 2013 virtualization white paper. The issue is: with real-time communications there can't be any kind of competition for virtualization resources. That means no thin provisioning, no oversubscription of CPU cores, and no dynamic memory. I also like to commit CPU cores or set latency sensitivity and of course don't forget no live migration . With all of these restrictions many firms opt to simply put it on physical servers .

  • Hi,

    Lync Server 2013 supports virtualization topologies that support all Lync Server workloads, including instant messaging (IM) and presence, conferencing, Enterprise Voice, Monitoring, Archiving, and Persistent Chat.

    Best Regards

  • I won't deploy virtual machine....at the end you need a host per VM... (ratio core 1:1 is hard...)

    Thanks Anthony
