Best practice config for ESXi 5 virtual machines (how many Ram,CPU,etc)
Posted on 2013-12-05
I have a HP ML380gen8 with 1 Xeon processor E5-2620 (6core) and 12 Gb RAM. There is a raid5 config with 4 disks (300Gb sas).
On this machines run VMware ESXi5 with a datastore of 838 Gb.
i want to install 2 virtual machines on the ESX.
1. SBS2011 (10 concurrent users, mainly office apps are being used (word/excel docs)
2. Win2008R2 RDP server (2 concurrent users)
What is the best config for both machines. In ESX i can set the "number of virtual sockes" and
"cores per socket". For the best performance. How many do i have to assign?
How many ram i have to assign to the machines?
Are there any other things i need to configure?
