Not sure if this is the correct post to ask this question, however, let me know if that’s the case.
I manage 10 servers at my work. We use them for many different stuff, but basically, they are running 50 VMs, with Esxi 6.7. The virtual machines are generally Windows 10, Windows Server and a couple of Linux. Averaging, the VMs have 3GBs of RAM, and 2 CPUs allocated. At what we need, they run at an 80% capacity with this specs.
Now, here is the tricky part: The hosts are Dell PowerEdge 410, with 64gb of RAM and 2 Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5620 @ 2.40GHz which are almost 10 years old.
What would be a good replacement for these servers? Let’s say if they want to reduce the number of Hosts to 2, instead of having 10 (reduce space, heat and power consumption), having some performance speed improvement without having to sell the whole company just to upgrade the servers 🙂
Thanks for your time in advance!
