I'm new in VMware. I explain the requirement and you give me your advise about hardware and software. (we try to keep the cost minimum).
We need to setup a set of VM for test and development:
- It's not production and can be done for a day until it restore.
- 4 Ubuntu Linux and 2 Windows 10 maybe one iOS (If possible)
- If one VM or machine crashes I like to be able to restore it, the image can be a few days old and restoring can be manual.
- In my wish list I eventually like to have some high availability. (Depends on cost.)
How can I setup this with minimum cost? if i want to get a bit more HA how would be the cost?
We are thinking about getting 2 Second hand/refurbished Dell server, maybe: Dell PowerEdge R620 with 2*Xeon
any thought or suggestion about hardware? We are pretty open about that.
Please let me know what you think.
Thank you in advanced
