ESXI 5.0 Virtualization server with 6-cores and 32GB RAM for under $400
The Fujistsu MX130 small foot print server is getting a lot of love these days.
In fact, I love it so much I decided to get a second one when it went on sale again.
I just upgraded the memory to Mushkin Silverline 32GB for $122 when it went on sale at NewEgg.
Now, I have a great little ESXI 5 Hypervisor server for under $400 with 32GB of RAM.
$140 Fuji Server
$122 32GB of RAM
$120 6-core AMD FX-6100 CPU
$12 extra gigabit card
I can run 20-40 Virtual Machines (depending on size and payload). Average LAMP VM are 256-512MB so if I only wanted to host Linux VPS, I think I can probably go as high as 50 LAMP VM.
I'll build my second MX130 whenever deals and bargains arises for components.
