This server is actually part of our development and testing lab, but we
rely on it as if it were production. It's a dual-processor Proliant
DL380 with 4GB RAM running Fedora Core 5 with VMware Server 1.0.1 and
routinely hosts around 5 virtual machines of Windows Server 2003 R2, SQL
Server 2005 and Longhorn. The Windows Server VMs all have at least 512MB
RAM allocated to them (Longhorn needs more) and we've never exceeded 50%
average CPU and RAM utilization with 5 of them running at once.


sweett setup. Pity you had to run Windows....but I know in the real
world, it sometimes can't be avoided.

And here I thought runing WinXP Pro under Qemu ontop of FC5 on my
desktop was a big deal.
