Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

SQL Supports being installed in a virtual environment without an issue. With the SQL Products you have to be careful, as they are memory and CPU hogs (which is intentional) and they can quickly eat up all the CPU and memory resources of the host OS if you let them.

For smaller installations with smaller cubes and databases installing SSAS in a guest will be fine. However larger installations with large cubes and databases you will probably see a negative performance impact when using a virtual server (no matter the platform).
