Virtualization

by adetolaoyawale In reply to Not bad...

I'll running several virtual machines for my home study including Cisco CallManager4.x, Cisco CallManager 6.x, Cisco Unity Server, Microsoft servers (DC, DHCP, TACACS+. RADIUS etc. AutoCAD 2008.

I'm open to suggestions if this seem like an overkill but I'm looking for a server to last 4-6yrs without major upgrade.
