Request : Virtual Server planning RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am new to virtualisation and configuring one Dell PE R530 to host two Virtual systems. I have 2 X 600GB SAS drives in RAID 1 and 6 X 1.2 TB SAS Drives in RAID 5 with a hot spare, 8GB of RAM and will increase to 16GB depending on performance.

    I'm planning to install Hyper V 2012 R2 Server on RAID 1 drives on a partition of 50 GB.

    Install two virtual servers and host the .vhdx for 1. Document Management Application Server and 2. McAfee ePO server on RAID 5 drives.

    The document management server will have FSRM installed to redirect My Documents for few (50) users to the remaining 500 GB on the RAID 1 drives (50GB already kept for 2012 HYPER V R2). 

    The Document Management Application will be hosted on SP Foundation on Virtual system 1.

    Can it be planned as explained above. Otherwise suggest a better plan for effective utilisation of the resources.

    Thanks in advance...
