Can remote recorder be run on Virtual Windows hosts? Say like Dell VMware ESX?
Asking for a friend. We're facing a huge capital outlay to retire our fleet of remote recorders (estimate $30k for total of 53 PCs). Reasons for this are multiple but mostly, aging hardware and NEED for Windows 11 compatibility. We want to stay out ahead of end-of-life for Win10. Our techs want to try and migrate to a virutalized hosting environment to possibly gain 1.)Less wear and tear on unused/unscheduled recorders, vm could be shutdown, saving money 2.)Ease of emergency swaps between recorders if a software issues comes up, and Recorder fails to start (hot spares are good!) 3.)Cost savings on hardware, possibly, but more likely it will be less effort to support virtualized hosts than physical PCs (we had a heat issue in our little data closet in Fall2022 and the PCs had to shed load). If anyone has experimented, tried out running Remote Recorder 12.x on virtual Win10 or Win11 hit me up! I'd be all ears an find out what (if anything) people are experimenting with.
