The IT department at work has caught the VMWare religion, and loves virtual servers to the point where one really has to justify the purchase of a real piece of hardware.
We would like to use VTune, and dedicating a box to it would seem to be a good idea (wouldn't want my websurfing to skew performance numbers). IT would like to know why this dedicated box couldn't be a virtual one.
We could go around and around on this one, but clearly the fastest resolution to our political issue would be an authoritative statement from someone on the VTune team that using VTune on a VMWare virtual PC is/is-not supported/recommended.
Would it be possible for someone on the VTune team to provide such a statement? One could construe the hardware requirements on the VTune web page to be a definitive statement of hardware needs, but a VMWare proponent might consider emulated hardware to satisfy those criteria.
