We are planning to implement Vmware and planning to convert 4 Web server into one (virtualization)...
currently all 4 web servers are running on 4 P4 1G ram, 10G servers and there isn't many traffic on it and it wont be huge traffic down the road anyway.
So we want to reduce the number of servers to 1. I would like to know how would you do it if you were to set this up?
there are few options to choose from of course but which one will really do the job...
should we just install Windows OS and then Vmware Server on it? or install VM ESXi ?
if ESXi, do we need to have a NAS server? or can this be run on the same server?
