I would like to get a dedicated server to run VMWare, VirtualBox, or similar.
On this box, I would like to host 3-4 virtual instances of Linux, to act as nodes in a web farm.
Performance is not that important, this would only be for testing and experimenting. I need something sub $1000 (including tax/shipping).
Can someone recommend a pre-built server that would do the trick? I am pretty ignorant of hardware so building one is not going to work for me.
Also, would I need multiple network cards to simulate a web farm or can the virtualization software handle that for me.
