VMWare Cluster

Does anyone have the link to the required HW for a new VMWare cluster?  Also are the memory recomendations at 32 gb?

Refer to http://www.vmware.com/go/hcl in order to determine compatible systems, storage, io adapters, etc.

32gb is a reasonable starting point per server for a small to medium sized cluster. Physical RAM requirements depend greatly on the intended workload.

Good Luck
There are no specific recommendations for a cluster. Hosts with the same family CPUs, shared storage and 1GB network is about it.

hardware compatibility list is here >> http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php?ie=UTF-8&q=site:%20vmware.com%20hcl.

The availability guide is here >>> http://www.vmware.com/pdf/vsphere4/r40/vsp_40_availability.pdf
