Hello Srikanth,

The PIKE is a proprietary expansion device for ASUS motherboards. These motherboards are found on the HCL, but it appears ASUS has not placed the PIKE into the certification process as a discrete storage adapter card. ASUS also does not claim it is supported on anything other than Window and Linux operating systems.

You're just going to have to try it and see, really. I suspect it's probably going to work just fine, but it will probably not be considered a supported storage adapter for VMware ESX or ESXi, if you run into trouble.
