    It would be useful for the official Vertica documentation to clarify this topic, as customers are more often using ESX as a platform for Vertica these days. Perhaps what Vertica doesn't wish to support is storage vmotion and with some validation might be willing to support server vmotion however that would be up to the product owners.

    This question comes up often from our ITOM customers - the article should be edited to be more clear about how customers should disable vmotion. Also, the blog/KB article is great but does not mention "In order for Vertica to function effectively in a virtualized environment, use the --point-to-point flag" for install_vertica.
