Description

6 years ago
For reference, we currently have 103 VMs, each (as far as I've seen clicking around in vSphere) with 42GB disk provisioned, 2GB RAM, and one CPU.

Keeping within roughly that total of RAM (200GB) and CPU (100), what would you like to see the new builders look like?
Definitely more disk, 30G for /builds is too small these days.

Here's a proposal to chew on:

50 VMs, split evenly between 32- and 64-bit
100GB disk
2 CPU
4 GB RAM

that has about the same footprint, but hopefully better capacity and certainly much better performance.

Sounds like a good place to start. What's the plan for growing capacity beyond that (hardware / VMs)?

The VMs will most likely be retired when we begin deploying linux builders on HP DL120G7's.

Is that a good place to start the discussion?  If so, where does it go from here?

Ok, let's revisit when we start deploying the DL120s
