I am sure this is a question that has been asked before but here it goes. Is it possible to build a reliable VM/ESX server on the Phenome x6, or is the opteron 4100 and 6100 series the be all and end all for AMD Virtualization platforms. I know they differ in several ways, but is the core not the same?
It certainly is possible, but what motherboard will you use? Local storage (what type) or a SAN? What about the NICs? I'd be more concerned with the motherboard and controllers compatibility than the CPU itself.
