Who's got a home lab? Hp Microserver?
Im at the point where I want to move all my "testing" machines off my imac and onto a dedicated server.
Do any of you have a home lab for testing / studying with?
Im toying with the idea of getting a Microserver, installing 8GB RAM and ESXI to get some client server testing going.
I also need a file server to act as a backup for my imac so thinking of the following
VM WHS for backing up my imac
2 VM Server 2008R2
2 VM Client OS's (probably W7)
Would this work on the microserver? The bottle neck im guessing will be the CPU. The only server with any substantial load on it would be the WHS as its backing up the imac. But backups wouldnt be run at the same time as im working on the other virtual machines...
