Installing vCommander

A new install of vCommander, requires a dedicated application server and optionally another server to host the associated vCommander database. Although you can deploy vCommander as a single application server with a local PostgreSQL database for non-production environments, for production environments, it is recommended that you use a separate database server with Microsoft SQL Server installed. The number of servers you use to deploy vCommander depends on factors such as your expected occupancy, or how many hypervisors, public clouds and VMs you expect to manage.
