I am curious to which OS you plan on using to; All current companies charge by socket and not cores.
MirkoTik router OS. A powerful server is needed because it will be used as a radius server for a upto 5000 clients and will be used to back up configs from a large amount of sites daily. MirkoTik must be used to intergrate into our system, so we do not want to change from MirkoTik.
What I am now thinking is to run KVM (linux) on the hardware then run MikroTik on ontop of KVM and manually assign a core to the OS........Then if i need more MirkoTik OSs i can simply add them to the other cores.....
