Hi Michael

Thanks for the comments,
Yes I will use this virtual host for pre-production, actually in our production server Disk I/O write is high so I think RAID 5/6 is not suitable, rather I would like to go for RIAD 01.
What do you think?
I also consider to use SAS drive.

Hello Jewel, 
are your virtual Servers for productive use ? If yes, I would prefer a HDD-Raid for your VM’s. Raid 5 oder 6 with a good Raid-Controller (LSI,
 3ware for example) and if you need much diskI/O you should use SAS Disk’s, or, if you have much money, Flashdisk.

Hi ,

Thank you very much, actually I have the following scenario for hypervisor.

HDD: 500 GB

RAM: 32GB 

CPU 8 Core @2.9GHz

and each guest vm is


RAM: +/- 4 GB

CPU 1 Core +/-@ 2.0 GHz

Maximum 8 guest VM

in my server two eth each  gigabit 

I want to run some mysql and membase service which have huge disk I/O

So is the server configuration is OK or do i need SAS HDD or something else?

It mostly depends on configuration of VMs. We are not gypsies, and we cannot foretell from our glass spheres.
