Deciding on Machine for Remote Virtualisation - PC or Server
Posted on 2011-09-26
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
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
