    I have just bought a new HP Server with 2 16 core chips and 32gb ram I am thinking of VDI'ing some machines or virtualising some servers.

    16 core?

    I have some of the Xeon 6 Cores (hyper threaded) so that the server thinks it has 24 cores

    That's a worrying procurement process right there.

    IME if you are going to be visualising (especially if its going to be clustered) 4 hard drives isn't going to be enough. Admittedly we dick our servers with multimedia but we have 2 file servers with 6 10k disks in each and they can't even cope with just serving files. Our hyperV box has 8 15k disks....

    But then if you are coming from a desktop PC to that spec...
