Small server to run vm while normal server gets fixed.
I look after a number of small primary schools that have a single server setup. Along with the normal backups I also use vmware Converter to capture an image. This has served me well in the past for doing server migrations and could be used if a server goes down to let a select few members of staff still work.
I am looking to get a not so powerful server that I can take with me into a school, dump the image onto and leave on site until they have a working server.
I did see on these forums something about a mini server (might be HP) that may do the job.
Obviously it needs to light so I can carry it.
I was going to say cheap as its got to come out of my pocket, but if its good I might be able to find the cash.
Any thoughts on this or alternative ideas.
