    Best Practice for deploying BBSA AppServer on Virtual Machine



      I've been looking for some best practice information regarding deploying a BBSA application server onto a virtual machine (specifically, a vSphere 5.0 VM). I found some really old best practice doc from 2009 (around the time 7.5 came out) that said you should only ever allocate a single vCPU with hyperthreading disabled to each application server and that scaling was done horizontally by adding additional VMs each with a single appserver instance.


      I looked at a later version of the deployment best practices guide (for version 8.1) and this didn't seem to make any mention of how best to deploy to a VM. The version of BBSA being deployed will be 8.1.04.


      Many Thanks - Lee
