I've got a bunch of blades, all with same amount of memory and cores in each. Some have local storage, some do not and rely on the SAN.
I've also got a ton of VMs that I need to build and drop on these blades. There are about 7 or 8 different instance types, each which has the same spec. For example, instanceA has 2 GB RAM/2 cores/100 GB SAN storage. InstanceB has 4 GB RAM/8 cores/60 GB blade-local storage. InstanceC has 16GB RAM/4 cores/100 GB blade-local storage. Etc.
Is there some sort of tool somewhere that I can run/get/etc that I can punch in each blade and instance spec, and said tool will automatically propose which blades to put instances on, while leaving a bit of room for overhead? Even an Excel template or something would work.
List of VMs and hosts goes in, locations of VMs on guests comes out. VMware with vSphere.
Any input is appreciated
