I currently have two machine - one server. Appologize for the legth - wanted to be a specific as i can.
Intel - S5000PSLSATAR (Intel® Server Board S5000PSL)
Intel S5000PSLSATAR Server Board, I5000P/6xSATA/8xFBDIMM/2xG
EO/RAID 0, 1, 10/XEON 5XXX
Form Factor: SSI EEB 3.6, 12 x 13 inch / 305 x 330 mm
Intel - BX80574E5410A
Intel Xeon E5410 Quad Core 2.33Ghz/12MB/LGA6/1333FSB/
Active Intel Specification (LGA771)
Kingston - KVR667D2D4F5/4GI
Kingston KVR667D2D4F5/4GI 4GB 667MHz DDR2 ECC FULLY BUFFERED CL5 240PIN DIM
24 GB Ram total.
Adaptec RAID 7805
I have 4 SATA drives running in a Raid-6 or Raid-4 configuration. I think it is Raid-6
Hard to check at the moment as I don't have physical access.
Anyay it currently runs Vmware ESXi 6.0
Now what I am thinking of doing in moving the whole raid system to my new computer which is a desktop
GA-X99-UD4 (rev. 1.0)
64 GB of RAM
CPU: Core i7-5930K
This computer runs Windows 10 x64 professional and I will use VMWare Workstation 11 to do my virtualization instead.
(Will updagrade to 12 later).
So my questions are considering how old my server is compared to my new machine will virtualization go faster.
So I am not going to be doing anything dumb like running gaming at the same time.
ie. when running VMware Workstation that is all I be doing on the machine.
Also I am figuring the old server might of had a performance bottleneck with IO due to the backplane but that is a guess.
So i realize I will lose all the VM's and have to re-create things. But really interested to see what people think
BTW it is just me that uses this virtualization solution - so it is single user only.
So I am really interested in if I can expect a performance increase or decrease.
