I'm new in Hyper-V. 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 a VM can be done for a day until it restore.
- Around 4-5 Ubuntu Linux and 2-3 Windows 10.
- If one VM or machine crashes I like to be able to restore it easily to the second hardware.
- In my wish list I eventually I 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 used/refurbished Dell server, maybe: Dell PowerEdge R620 with 2*Xeon
any thought or suggestion about hardware?
Please let me know what you think.
Thank you in advanced
