VMWare Cluster

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

Hardware compatibility is not intended for a cluster, but for vSphere. See the HCL links provided by the other 2 experts above for hardware compatibility.

The amt of RAM/CPU required will depend on what type of VMs and the apps within those VMs you intend to run. So, for RAM/CPU req's, you need to see the sys req. documentation for those apps, then leave enough resources left over for the host itself (at least 2GB RAM for the host).

Hope that helps.

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.
