i am looking at putting together an esx solution for a test environment to run upto 10 virtual machines, ranging from exchange 2010, Domain controllers, sql, and fileservers.
i am aware of the Vmware technologies out there but dont know where to start with hardware, its only for a test environment so was thinking..
to begin with..
ESXi 5 - 2 x HP DL160 Xeon Quad Core (X5550) 2.66GHz, 12gb RAM
what about storage? looking at running openfiler but on what hardware?
has to be low budget!!
thanks in advance
