Looks like it's supported, Cisco has a PDF document dedicated to what configurations are supported. Here you go

Call Manager 7.x will run fine on VMware as virtual machine as long as memory and disk space meet minimum requirements. I don't think it will be officially supported by TAC until 8.0 comes out, and then only on certain hardware configuratoins.
"Cisco Unified Communications Manager 8.0(2) can run on VMware on Cisco UCS B200 M1 and UCS C210 M1 servers."

8.0 upgrade media kits are available now, so I would expect that 8.0(2) is actually available now to order.
I just downloaded the upgrade to 8.0(2). I'll let you know how the upgrade goes.
I'm running Call Manager 7.1(3), Unity Connection 7, Unified Presence 7 all on VM's and they all work perfectly fine. . . with no support from Cisco, I wouldn't want to do it in a high visibility production environment, but for a small implementation, it's pretty cool.

I did the upgrade, unfortunately 8.0 has a different license requirement and I don't have a license. 7.x loads up with a demo license and 8.0 will not work with that license. Everything else went flawlessly.. but I had to roll back to 7.1.3
