Implementing Web Gateway 7.3.2 as Virtual Appliance

Hello,

We are looking into setting up Virtual Web Gateway appliances as a backup to our physical appliance. I have been searching for best practice specifications/configurations for a virtual machine but have not found any official documentation on the subject. Can someone direct me to this documentation if it exists?

Thanks!

You can find the VM specifications in the product guide on page 27.

Re: Implementing Web Gateway 7.3.2 as Virtual Appliance

There are some specs in the product guide.

Essentially:

use ISO

mount in ESXi to an instance that mimics your physical hardware

All resource allocation sohuld be exclusively to MWG, don't overprovision the server

For best performance of the virtual instance, disable caching in the proxy.

that's about it...

best,

Michael
