I'm looking for a performant system to run a home brewed ESXi-server.
I would like to remotely manage the console. HP Micro server can do all of this (remote access card, 8GB of RAM etc) but the price is really high for not that much of performance.

So I wondered what machine would be a good one for running my vm's (ESX) on, have the necessary RAM (at least 8) and I could remotely power on or off.
I found the whitelist but still wonder if somebody has hands on experience with a specific brand/config and could advise it. Hard to buy-test and bring back to the shop if doens't meet expectations ;-( ....

Thanks for any input.
