This article provides links to a subset of articles that provide guidelines and support status for running various Microsoft clustering solutions and configurations on VMware vSphere.

VMware provides customers additional flexibility and choice in architecting high-availability solutions. Microsoft has clear support statements for its clustering solutions on VMware.

Additionally, VMware provides guidelines in terms of storage protocols and number of nodes supported by VMware on vSphere, particularly for specific clustering solutions that access shared storage. Other clustering solutions that do not access shared storage, such as Exchange Cluster Continuous Replication (CCR) and Database Availability Group (DAG), can be implemented on VMware vSphere just like on physical systems without any additional considerations.
