I am planning on building servers to host the max number of VMs. Right now I have seperate machines running some applications, datamining type stuff and they each have about 1gig ram, 600-1GHz CPU and I'd like to see how many I can run on a server running VMWare Server ESXi. I am using Micro XP for the OS.
I've narrowed in on this board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813151085&cm_re=tyan-_
Seems a bargain and then can load it up with a lot of ram etc. Any suggestions / help with specs? Do you think that I am not going to save much money by building myself vs going w/ a dell server etc.
