What do you consider "more beefy"? I was looking at the HP DL380 G6 with a Quad-Core Xeon E5520 (418367-B21)...I hadn't decided on RAM yet. Any recommendations for ESXi?

I would think that you could buy a pair of servers and that would be sufficient to virtualize everything. They might need to be more beefy servers than you would buy if you were just installing SLES on them. Take the money from the third server and beef up the other two.
my 2 cents.

We are a small business - 65 employees. I currently have one NetWare 6.5 server running GW8(MTA, POA, and GWIA) and ZfD 7. I'm getting ready to purchase some new server hardware. My original thought was to get three new servers. Move the GW8 stuff onto the first running SLES or OES. Setup ZCM 10 on the second (I assume SLES). And setup ESXi on a third to host some VMs so I could replace a few auxilliary PCs doing individual tasks in my server room. Due to lack of hardware, I haven't had a chance to play with ESXi yet. I'm also fairly new to Linux, although I do have GMS and Reload running on SLES. Does this sound reasonable? Or does anyone have a better suggestion? Thanks!
