For Sybase, an SAP Company's support statement on virtual environments, see:

For SAP's support statement on generic virtual environments, see:

For SAP's support statement on public cloud environments, see:

Thank you Volker I hadn't seen that. The statement re performance is helpful when trying to persuade clients that virtualisation doesn't give you something for nothing.

> The statement re performance

For those (like me) too lazy to follow links:

SQL Anywhere is supported on virtual machines such as VMWare, Xen, and MS Virtual Server/Windows Server Virtualization with some restrictions:

In the real world, that is often unexpected news for sysadmins.
