This article aims to help customers understand what is required to make Informatica PowerCenter Enterprise Grid available on VMware vSphere. The attached Deployment Guide provides a sample step by step procedure of how Informatica deployed PowerCenter Enterprise Grid/HA in its High Availability Center of Excellence for certification purposes.
It is not meant as a step by step “you must do everything in this document this way” cookbook, but as a prescriptive solution clearly articulating what to do in order to have the best possible out of box experience with Informatica Enterprise Grid/HA on VMware. Examples where deviations might be less problematic might be operating system versions used at client deployments vs what is discussed in this document. So long as the operating system version being used at the client is a supported version, it should not be an issue. However, advanced parameter settings should be followed precisely as prescribed in this document for support.
Virtualization support for PowerCenter Enterprise Grid/HA begins at version 9.5 onward including only VMware vSphere 4.1U1 and later versions.
To view the guide, see the attachments section in this article.
