The full-featured demo of the virtual appliance monitors up to five device nodes and one surveillance node. You can purchase a license key to upgrade to a production version to monitor additional device nodes and activate supported applications, or to migrate from a server hardware version to a virtual appliance.

NOTE: VMware ESXi 4.1.0 was used as the reference virtualization platform during the development of the Data Center Expert 7.2.x virtual appliance, and is the first supported virtualization platform. The Data Center Expert virtual appliance is delivered as an OVA (Open Virtualization Archive), expected to function properly on any virtualization platform that supports this format, or has an appropriate converter utility.

NOTE: There is currently no planned support for any other virtualization platforms, including Microsoft Hyper-V.
