I have prepared TWO high end desktops for lab virtualization for one of my customer
ASUS X99 Sabertooth Mobo
Intel i7 5820K
Hyper-x 64 GB DDR4 Memory
Asus Geforce GTX 750 2GB graphics card
1 TB WD Black HDD as OS and data drive
Corsair 650W Power Supply
Cooler Master cabinet
Now I want to get SSD drives to work with virtualization piece, the client is commercial educational institute for Microsoft \ VMware
I have identified below drives from their specifications, but couldn't decide best among them specially for virtualization
Samsung 850 Pro 1 TB - 300 TBW Endurance
Kingston KC310 900 GB - 681 TBW Endurance
The requirement is to run 10 to 12 virtual machines simultaneously for 12 Hours per day for lab purpose, there is no production load.
Most probably 150 to 200 GB data will be written every day (1TB per week)
VM VHD / VMDK size ranges from 10GB to 50 GB and should occupy around 600GB SSD space at a time
I am not expecting very superman performance, the expectation is, it should run lab VMs fluently.
Would above consumer class HDDs will best fit for this requirement?
I mean are these SSDs will be able to take load of 12 VMs at a time ? OR system performance will be degraded considerably?
Are these models perform for 3 years at least provided that they are within their endurance limit?
If above model doesn't fit the requirement, could you please suggest any other models?
Any help / insights are highly appreciated.
