  • Test configuration/s

    Hi,

    We have 3 test servers available to IT atm though the problem is they are not super fast, have tried vmware with guest OS's with slow results.

    Never really used clustering before so after google searches i still can't work out if i can get thes three server hardwares working together to drive one virtual image say or if clustering is just for fail over / redundancy.

    Also if above is not possible what is the leanest OS to run as a VmWare host.

    thanks

        Oh shame on you. Didn't you hear from Microsoft the new answer is Windows Server 2008 Core with Hyper-V?

          Ah. Jason, to cluster with MS you will will need Windows enterprise version which costs an arm and a leg (and about $2,500)

            definitely Linux. but I wouldn?t use ubuntu as a server - try Debian if you like the dpkg flavour, or go for CentOS if you prefer rpm

              Why not?

              I have nothing but good experience with ubuntu ..

              But that is only my personal opinion...

                That is merely DYasny's personal preference and/or professional recommendation.

                Both VMware Workstation and VMware Server support Ubuntu as both a host and a guest, although check the release notes because each supports different versions of Ubuntu officially.
