Is SQL 2014 AlwaysOn Availability groups supported on vSphere 5.5?

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
