I have the following machine setup as a 32bit virtual machine:
HP Storage work san solution HP ProLiant SL230s Gen8 Server 256 gb ram, 8 xeon processors.
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard Edition Service Pack 2
Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X7350 @ 2.93.GHz x 4 2.93GHZ 4.00 GB of RAM SVGA II graphics driver
I am trying to run the following:
Visual studio 2010 IIS Several Browsers MSSQL Developer edition
The issue I have is:
I find it extremely slow, the screen just hangs/ lags at times its responsiveness is super slow. What I need to know is if I upgrade to windows server 2008 64bit will there be any benefits? Or am I better off getting a local desktop rather the a VM that I connect to over the network.
Yes I am a developer I do not get access to vmware admin panels if I did oh boy would things be different.
Apologies for the tagging not sure what vmware related tags I should of used.
