ESXi on New Dell R710??

This post was originally published on this site

 

Looking to get a new Dell R710 with 32 Gigs,  2 Xeon E5520 2.26 with 4 450GB 15K drives in Raid 10 and trying to find out if ESXi will load on it ok or if need to drop back to a PE 2950?

 

 

will be putting a VM with Exchange 2007,  2 – VM’s with basic Win 2003R2 server,  backup AD VM , and possibly VM with test SQL 2008 on it.

 

 

Anything (other than SAN) that you would look to get/add to this?

 

 

Think SAN is out because of pricing (looks to be $8 – $10K).

 

 

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks
