Hi Experts,

Is SQL 2014 AlwayOn Availability groups supported on vSphere 5.5?

If so,

Can you please attach an official VMware website that states the support?

Since SQL AvailabilityOn Availability groups requires a MSCS, Can I install SQL  2014 and or 2012 AlwaysOn Availability groups over a virtual MSCS using RDM disks? From another blog and link it seems like SQL AlwaysOn availability groups is only supported on a non-shared disk, which means MSCS is not an option


I need the feedback  from a SQL and VMware experts
