The NetApp HCI Deployment Engine currently supports a single hypervisor (VMware vSphere), whereas other platforms support multiple hypervisors.

NetApp HCI v1.8 supports VMware vSphere 6.5U2-6.5U3, 6.7U1-6.7U3 and 7.0.

VMware vSphere 6.5U2 and 6.7U1 are also supported for initial deployments as well as expansions of existing environments. VMware vSphere 6.0 is no longer supported as it reached end-of-life on March 12, 2020.

Microsoft Hyper-V or Red Hat KVM hypervisors can be manually installed on the NetApp HCI compute nodes. However, support for such a particular combination can only be obtained via the NetApp Feature Product Variance Request (FPVR) process.
