Is there any guide for CCS V11 running on VMWARE?

I've found you want to use basically the same req's as physical. Your app server is the most critical. I've found somewhere around:

4-8 procs, 12+ GB RAM

Obviously, your mileage may vary (deployment size, console/web users, etc)

I've seen many deployments with less than this, and it's obvious.

For managers, you can easily go lower.

For some other Symantec products, the sizing guide mention: there is 20-30% performance decrease if running on VM, how come CCS doesn't have this issue?

on VMs the IO process would be high hence assuming 20-30% lesser performance than physical machines.

There are some VMWare guidelines on page 95 of the CCS v11 Planning & Deployment guide.
