Allowing memory to swapping with VMs is a real killer
Not that I have a good solution though - I have a caching RAID 5 SATA controller and it don't really help....
it depends on what your running on the virtual servers and how much they
use the disc. So far i have, mail server, web server and a file server. All running ok, but then again its not going to see heavy traffic, so it should be ok.
Hard drives were £80 each, but i brought them about 3 months ago. They should be about £65-70 now.
The case is a Shinobi SH09A, Can be found just here
, Its not the best made one in the world, but for the money, its ok.
