Is anyone running Profitool in a virtual environment? We are planning to move to version 6.1.16 and have been told by Profitool that running in a virtual environment is not recommended. I’m looking for anyone who has tested, researched or is currently running Profitool on a virtual server. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

We are interested in this also. I owe a call back to Shawn Edstrom to talk about it. Maybe we can schedule a Webinar/Call on the subject? Anyone else interested in moving towards virtual or willing to share their experience with it?

We run both our servers virtual using vmware's Vsphere and it runs great.
The only thing I have noticed is the isrewrite runs forever. It
definitely added some time since moving from physical. We are running
6.1.16 and usually running around 40-50 users logged in. If you have
any questions give me a call.
We are currently running 6.1.13 in production and are preparing to
upgrade to 6.1.16
Mainzeal virtualised the Profitool server in December 2009, with
Profitools help, in fact they did most of the migration for us.
We are planning to virtualise the WebInterface server in the near future.
We have experienced no problems as a result of this move and this
includes no noticeable increased time running isrewrites. We have a set
of 5 reports that we run regularly, taking a total of around 7 minutes
to run. This is the same time as it used to take on dedicated hardware.
We are using vmware's Vsphere

I'm more interested in running Profitool in Amazon's Cloud. It should work since PT used to offer a hosted service.
If we move in that direction, I may want to host the data locally.
