Currently we are in Vmware environment and its installed in diffrent DELL 2950 and R710 host servers. Basically all these for our own Application, Web and SQL..Currently we have new requirement to have another 30+ VMs. Planning to upgrade and to buy new host machines..
My question is buying host machines every time as a very expensive process. Is there any alternative solution that we don't need to spend too much for HW in this growing environment. Is there a good choice to buy Blade servers for VMs. We need to have 6 NICs for each server. Also we are in Netapps SAN Storage..
