3~4 VMs on one physical server. What kind of server should I order?
Posted on 2013-12-06
I am going to order a new server to host 3~4 VMs
- SBS2011 STD (50~75 users)
- SBS2011 Premium Addon (SQL SVR) (20 users)
- IIS Web Server (15 users)
- Sharepoint 2010 Foundation (50~75 users)
Here come some questions about this super server:
Should this server have dual or quad Xeon processors?
Should I order 8 SAS hard drives to form 1 RAID10 array or 2 smaller hard drives for RAID1 and 6 larger hard drives for RAID10? Why?
How should I partition the array, if needed?
I am going to use MS Server 2012 with Hyper-V Role
Thanks in advance!
