Hardware architecture guide forHPE Virtualized NonStop on VMware

Introduction

The HPE Virtualized NonStop (vNS) system introduces a whole new way of implementing HPE NonStop solutions in today's enterprise IT. It allows the ability to deploy an HPE NonStop system as a guest in a virtualized IT infrastructure or in a private cloud environment. This opens up the implementation choices for HPE NonStop solutions to a wide variety of hardware products available in the market.
To support HPE NonStop fundamentals of high availability, scalability, and security, Hewlett Packard Enterprise requires the virtualized hardware environment to meet a set of rules so that the HPE vNS system offers the same features and benefits as available in theHPE NonStop converged system (HPE NonStop X).
This document describes the requirements and rules for deploying an HPE vNS system in a virtualized environment. The document is intended to help customers prepare the underlying environment and deploy HPE vNS systems in compliance to these rules and guidelines.
