Can I use VMware EVC mode in a 2 machine cluster containing an IBM X3650M2 and a HP DL380G7?
The IBM X3650M2 has 2 x Intel E5520 processors
The HP DL380G7 has 2 x Intel X5690 processors
According to the EVC Compatibility Guide, 55xx is Nehalem series and 56xx is Westmere. Both are supported under Merom, Penryn and Nehalem EVC baselines.
My concern is, obviously, the different branded servers and also the fact that one server has quad-core processors whilst the other has six-core processors. Everything I've read 'suggests' it will work OK, but I was hoping someone could give me something more concrete.
Has anyone else had success in a similar environment?
