Re: Multi-DC Install: Install Tips?


Hi Don,

Very few people (if any) run hardware management servers. The model depends on which hypervisor you use – but a typical installation will run a small hypervisor management cluster just to host the management and MySQL VMs as well as any other infrastructure VMs required – so you probably just need compute capacity for 3-4 VMs at the most. I would guess your 32GB servers would do for this and then you can use the rest as of your hardware as dedicated compute hosts.

    Thanks, this is actually what I was looking for was more of a general 
    overview and thoughts.
    
    As for the 2 NIC boxes, yeah, not exactly what I'd vote to have, but 
    there aren't a ton of them, and I can either mark them for low usage, 
    grab one for a management server, etc.
    
    Any recommended hardware sizes for the management servers?  Have some 
    E3-1240s w/32GB of RAM extra; should these be able to handle the load, 
    or should I bump that up?  If so, cores, Ghz, or RAM?
    
    And have a perfect case to start small, that can be a lazy migration 
    (~30 VMs), so hopefully, I can unearth at least the big nastys with that.
    
    Thanks,
    Don
