Applies To: Intelligent Application Gateway (IAG)

Whale Communications Intelligent Application Gateway (IAG) 2007 Service Pack 2 (SP2) can be obtained as an appliance-based solution at Hardware Partners (\&clcid=0x409) or as a software solution in the form of a virtual machine. This section describes system requirements for installing the software version of IAG 2007 SP2 as a virtual machine and for installing IAG 2007 SP2 onto a hardware appliance.

Requirements for installing IAG with Service Pack 2 as a virtual machine

The following table lists the requirements on the host computer for installing a single software version of IAG 2007 SP2 as a virtual machine. The requirements are identical for both volume license software and trial software. Note, however, that if you want to use trial software for demonstration purposes only, it can be installed on hardware that does not meet the installation requirements.

Consider CPU upgrade and additional memory for each additional installation of an IAG virtual machine if applicable.
