    Advise for VMware vSphere Hypervisor 6.7


      Hello Everybody,

      I am new on VMWare and got a PC which has-

      Intel Core i7 8th gen processor,

      now 16GB DDR4 RAM (within 2 months it will have 32GB),

      2TB HDD (7200RPM)

      And a Intel 32 GB Optane Memory 


      Now planning to install VMware vSphere Hypervisor 6.7 on the above PC. I need to know -


      1. Will that Intel 32 GB Optane Memory work on VMware vSphere Hypervisor 6.7 platform properly?

      2. While I download the VMware vSphere Hypervisor 6.7, there is a license key for it. How long this key is valid for the VMware vSphere Hypervisor 6.7?

      3. If the given license is expired then will I capable of creating VMs and work on that VMware vSphere Hypervisor 6.7?


      Thanks in Advance

          Hi Deadlock,


          Thank you for posting in the Intel® communities.


          Regarding to the Intel® Optane™ Memory, it is supported only in Windows* 10 64-bit, so it won’t work properly on a VMware platform.


          Regarding to the questions about VMware* vSphere Hypervisor, I don’t have the answers for you as those questions go beyond of our support scope, however I recommend you to check the following VMware* site where you will find detail information and more appropriate support for your inquiries: vSphere, Training & Technical Documentation


          I hope that I have clarified your concern about the Intel® Optane™ Memory. If there is anything else I can help you with about the module, feel free to ask.


          Have a nice day.
