MS private cloud - can apps share systems? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Going through the MS private cloud evaluation documentation in preparation for deploying a private could in the lab.  Architecture looks like this:

    SCCM 2012
    Service Manager

    I currently have 3 physical servers in the lab to use to deploy.  I have some HP 385 g5p and 380 servers with 32GB+ memory each and a couple hundred gigs of storage.  The requirements for things like Orchestrator and VMM and AppController show as 2xCPU, 2GB memory, and 40GB hard drive.  Can they all run on one physical server?  What services can run happily together on one system, or should I really create VMs for those individual services?

  • No, I would suggest that you run each Component on their own Virtual machine.

    This will give you a better experience, easier setup and save you for a lot of trouble.
