RSA 7.1 supported under ESX 3.5

More and more people would like to implement OTP (One Time Password) solutions. RSA is one of multiple vendors for OTP solutions. I also notice the wish to implement and support OTP with on-demand tokens, like SMS and e-mail.

RSA supports on-demand tokens, but the minimum RSA Authentication Manager version required is 7.1. Not only on-demand tokens, but also virtualization (like VMware) is very hot. For a long time, RSA 7.1 was only supported on physical servers. Running RSA 7.1 on a physical server doesn’t always perform very well, especially compared to RSA 6.1. This version performs well on a physical server as well on a virtual server.

RSA Authentication Manager 7.1 is now supported under VMware ESX server, hosting 3.5. You can check all supported platforms on the RSA website.

I guess I have to install this version under ESX to see how it performs, but maybe someone can tell me their own experience….
