So I have a server bought purposely to host some of the production servers at my new company. I am looking at using Disk2VHD to convert them then import into Hyper V.
I am using server 2012 R2, 144gb Ram, 16 x 300gb drives Raid 10, 2 hex core processors.
I do only have the one server for this at the moment but am looking at purchasing another for replication further down the line. My question is about where do i store the VHDX files? At the moment i just have them on a partitioned drive, I have been reading about having them on a USB drive or Flash Drive. I have other possibilities like storing them on a NAS drive too. I guess the setup i have at the moment would be the quickest, What are the benefits of using the Flash drives?
I am looking at creating 5 or 6 VM's on here too so the Flash drive would have to be massive wouldn't it?
