Energy saving Micro-Servers running VMware vShpere 5

we were looking for inexpensive and energy efficient micro servers working with VMware vSphere 5 for our Lab and testing. These models worked just fine (although they dont have any VMware Certification, so you wont get support from VMware) :
Fujitsu MX130 S2

  • Dual-Core AMD Athlon II X2 220 2,8GHz
  • 16 GB RAM max. (4 x 4GB DDR3 1333 ECC unregistered)
  • onboard Broadcom GBit-LAN (tg3)
  • 2 non-hotswap 3,5″  SATA drive bays
  • 2 x HDD 500 GB
  • 4 low profile expansion slots (PCIe x1, x4, x16, legacy PCI)
  • power consumption 48W (vShpere 5.0 running, no active VM, without harddisks)

HP Proliant N40L

  • Dual-Core AMD Processor 1,5 GHz
  • 8 GB RAM max.
  • onboard Intel GBit-LAN
  • 4 non-hotswap 3,5″ SATA drive bays with SFF-8087 connector
  • 1 x HDD 250 GB
  • power consumption 42W (vShpere 5.0 running, no active VM)
  • nice: Set of screws and screwdriver on the back side of the front door, USB connector onboard, boots vSphere from USB

IT is exciting,
Christian Eich
