Can anyone tell me the VM requirements for AMP 8.x --1500 devices?

The sizing guide only lists the hardware requirements.

doesnt it say it is 20% more for virtual? and dedicated resources.

The +20% appears to apply to I/O.

i read this in the 8.0 hardware sizing guide

 

Virtualization
AirWave can run in a virtualized environment. To ensure scalability, dedicate the processing and memory. You must
also ensure that the disk subsystem can maintain the IOPs throughput as detailed below.

Most virtualized environments use a shared disk subsystem assuming that each application will have bursts of I/O
without a sustained high I/O throughput. AirWave requires a continuous sustained high data I/O rate.

Aruba recommends a 20% increase buffer for virtual environments. Ensure you allocate enough extra disk space for the
OS and swap when partitioning the virtual disk.

 which i read as in general take 20% extra for a virtualized environment and make sure it is dedicated for this.

Yes you should add 20% to the recommended hardware specs (CPU, memory, disk IO, etc).
