Hello guys :)

Im back with a slightly different question, ....

I am in the middle of deciding on another server as the one i have is Blatantly not good enough, (HP DL360 G4 / 6GB Ram ) ...

I am browsing around the net and i am wondering this ...

What are the main differences between servers and PC's

Do i need an actual server to do what i am looking for,

please could you tell me if the following system would do what i am asking regarding remote virtualisation :
3.4GHz Quad Core AMD Phenom2 x4
8GB DDR3 Ram

if it is not a good idea to do this on a PC, .. would the following be sufficient specs for at least 5 remote users :

HP DL380 G5
1 X QUAD CORE 2.0 GHZ XEON
 8 GB RAM
 DVDRW LIGHT SCRIBE
 P400 CONTROLLER

or even .....

HP DL380 G5 2x 3.0GHz DUAL CORE 8GB RAM
DUAL PSU/DVD DRIVE, ILO2 ADVANCED


I do know that ALL mentioned above have the VT+ feature

P.S. i understand if i googled this for long enough i will find scattered answers, but i would prefer to hear this kind of information from the "Experts"


Thanks in advance
