I am setting up a new WEB + MAIL + SQL server on brand new hardware.
As basis, ESXi is used with 2 Virtual Machines, running Windows 2008 Server 64-bit.
Now, server has 2 RAID arrays setup as follows:
RAID 10 array with 4 x 1TB SATA disks = approx. 2 TB of storage space
RAID 1 array with 2 x 300GB SAS 15k disks = approx. 300 GB of fast system space
Now, could you recommend me how to configure virtual machines/ESXi to gain the best performance out of these disks?
What to put where, how much space should I allocate for what etc.
I am kinda new into VMware.
