Setting up VMs on Single HDDs
I've been told that if I wanted to virtualise a couple of servers, e.g. 3, the best route is to have 4 HDDs for your server.
The first is to install your OS on it and then give the remaining 3 HDDs a VM each. This way there is less disk activity going on and if you end up putting a few VMs on a single HDD.. it will run really slow.
So really, what I've been told is not to bother with RAID5 or whatever, just install the HDDs as normal and use WM Server 1.0.8.
What would your recommendation be and why?
