This answer always provides the most up-to-date Symantec Encryption Management Server (formerly PGP Universal Server) Certified Hardware List (CHL).
Symantec Encryption Management Server is a customized Linux operating system installation and cannot be installed on a Windows server. Every Symantec Encryption Management Server requires a dedicated system that meets the system requirements listed below. The installation process deletes all data on the system and reconfigures it as a Symantec Encryption Management Server.
Symantec Encryption Management Server Certified Hardware List - Valid November 5, 2012 through November 5, 2013
You must obtain the latest version of this list for hardware purchasing decisions after November 5, 2013.

VMWare vSphere 5 - Supported platform, non-hardware. Sufficient processing power equivalent to a 3 GHz Intel Xeon must be dedicated to the Symantec Encryption Management Server virtual machine. VMware Tools must be installed and configured in the Symantec Encryption Management Server operating system.
Disk space requirements:
- Small/medium environment - 50 GB minimum allocated to the VMware instance; 4 GB RAM dedicated to the VMware instance.
- Medium/large environment - 100 GB minimum allocated to the VMware instance; 8 GB RAM dedicated to the VMware instance.
VMWare vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi) 5 with VMotion Support - Supported platform, non-hardware
VMware HA Configuration: Host Monitoring - Enabled; VM Monitoring - Disabled; Application Monitoring - Disabled
VMware DRS Configuration: Migration Automation Level - Fully automated; Power Management Automation Level - Off; Migration Threshold - Apply all recommendations.
Although a broad array of other hardware may work well with Symantec Encryption Management Server, Symantec Encryption Management Server has been tested with, and is compatible with, the systems in this list.
Note: Symantec Encryption Management Server supports additional memory beyond the minimum requirement but not exceeding 16 gigabytes.
To qualify as Symantec Encryption Management Server Certified Hardware, the server must be one of the versions listed and all components must be configured as specified. For Support purposes, if you change the sizes of hard disks in the same type of drive (for example, 36 GB SCSI to 73 GB SCSI), increasing memory configurations and processor speeds in the same type and family qualifies as the same system.
