Support for Virtual Environments and Storage Appliances (NAS and SAN)
Due to the many configurations and wide variety of virtual environments, Network Attached Storage devices (NAS), and Storage Area Network (SAN) appliances, it is not possible for SolidWorks to replicate all the permutations. SolidWorks products are therefore not supported on virtual environments, NAS and SAN appliances.
The use of replication capabilities available with NAS and SAN devices may interfere with the Enterprise PDM Archive server replication.
Virtual environments force SolidWorks, eDrawings, and DraftSight to run in Software OpenGL mode resulting in significant graphics performance degradation.
