    Is it okay to virtualize Orion's SQL Database?

      Currently I have Orion and the database installed on a single physical box.  At this time it's just running SQL Express, mainly because we don't own a copy of SQL to use.

       

      I have another project where we are likely going to end up buying SQL Server 2014 Standard and my original plan was to set it up on a virtual server.  I'd like to eventually also use this for the Orion database, however while reading through the admin guide it appears this is not recommended and the Orion SQL database should only be on a physical server:

      Is that correct that the Orion database cannot be virtualized, or does it just mean to keep the VM running Orion's SQL on a separate host in the virtual cluster?
