Re: Proliant DL 20 - INSTALL VMWARE WITHOUT SD CARD

Yes, you can install VCenter(Vmware) without a sd card. You may use a solid state drive, but that is overkill. SD cards are preferred because VCenter is relatively lightweight (around 500-1000mb to install). It's all about using your resources the most efficiently. The make of the sd should not matter as long as they are formatted the same.

Good Luck,
