I want to run 2 ESXi 5 servers connected to a ISCSI san-storage.I'm thinking of buying a Synology with raid 5 for that, so I can use it for other stuff too + I'm familiar with it.
What is important:
-remote access card since no screens will be attached and servers will run in attic
-I prefer two smaller ESX-es then 1 big one, I thought about 2 CPU, 4 cores and about 16 GB of ram or more
-I would like to boot from an usb-stick, never done it, but the esx should have a usb-slot (which usb stick is best to use?)
Note: I already have an HP Microserver but the machine is so terribly slow (please do not give tips to improve this, I already did).
Just figuring out what hardware to buy, some of you guys probably have this kind of lab @home, any input is welcome.
