We want to use the VMware version in test / Dev but have production on Gseries nodes.
From an application point of view, it is the same code. Just don't do any performance characterization and expect the results to be the same on G-Nodes.
But from a Test / Dev environment perspective if they tested a HCP code upgrade and it works in VM then it will work on G series?
Any idea what the performance difference might be?
There is no way to give an answer to this question. In a VM environment, we provide guidelines, but there is nothing stopping the end user from utilizing the VM infrastructure in a different manner. For example, if they decide to run all 4 nodes of HCP on the same ESXi Server, the CPU and memory resources will be in high demand. Or if they decide to not put each HCP Node storage on a different data store, all HCP nodes will be competing for the same backend disk I/O.
From an upgrade point of view, this is going down to another level. The HCP install/upgrade software has be be very aware of environment that it is executing on top of. Performing an upgrade in a VM environment is no guarantee that upgrade will succeed on a G-Node environment. Too many variables could come into play.
Are you referring to customer code upgrade and test against the dev HCP instance ? or are you talking about the actual HCP software upgrade ?
