was reading the article: “Cheap and quiet solution for a home-based ESX Server” [url]
gonna give my props to HP workstation xw4000; we have gotten 3 units.
ESXi 3.5 U2/ Openfiler v2.3 installs out of the box. for a low cheap price of < S$600.
and it runs so quiet….
We have ESXi running on one of the machines, another one is running XP Pro (with VM Workstation, running a virtualised copy of Domain controller (win2k server). 3rd machine is a standby machine for a client’s project (part of support/ maintenance)
and coming soon, an external esxi + openfiler machine, to look up to the ESXi server as shared storage.0 show us some love.
