We've been given the go-ahead to start investigating virtualisation fully and been assigned £500ish to buy a test bed server.

Has anyone got anything they want rid of, obviously the higher spec the better.

I guess min specs would be:

Xeon Dual/Quad core
6GB+ ram
Hardware RAID
2TB across 4 drives (we need at least 1.2TB usable to test our Server 2008 DC backups)

Doesn't have to be particularly pretty....just functional!

Send me or ReggieP a message if you have anything available.

We're in the North West, on the Wirral.
