VMWare ESXi planning

karlpearson asked
Last Modified: 2017-08-11
Hi there,
We have just purchased a company that has 41 physical servers, nearly all of them are BL460c G1's. I am planning on buying a new chassis, populating it with Gen9 blades and giving them ESXi. They are not on our network, and won't be for a while. My question is does anyone know or have a tool for planning an ESXi environment, based on multiple physical servers being virtualized. I cannot use the capacity planning tool or the MS Assessment Planning toolkit, as they are not on our network. I know all of the specs of the servers, I was hoping that there was something even so simple as a spreadsheet, where I could plug in my numbers and get a rough answer. Hope someone can help me out.
