[Freeswitch-users] FreeSWITCH in virtual environments

I am reviewing the Confluence Virtualization page and had some questions, in particular about VMWare. My company distributes some of its software as a VMWare image file and we were looking to distribute a new product using FS in the same manner. The products operate at a customer premise, on their VMWare infrastructure, not in a cloud environment. Since our customers already have VMWare, switching to a different VM infrastructure is going to hurt, so I am looking for options/alternatives.

First, does anybody know if the virtual timing issues with VMWare have improved since this page was last updated in 2014? Is VMWare still not good enough? Is it possible to throw CPU & memory at this and make VMWare good enough, or is the virtual timing just not workable? 

On the virtualization page, there was a comment from 2010 that you might be happy with a High CPU Medium instance on AWS EC2. Certainly workload is a factor here, but I am trying to get my head around how big a machine to perform how small a workload. Is there a place where people talk about their experiences? 

Are there other VM platforms that might be acceptable?

Any help or comment is appreciated.

Thank you,
