You'll be running VMware horizon?
20-40 vm's is a lot for a home setup. Most SME's run less than that!
Those vm's are going to be site idle a lot of the time, so a thread ripper seems like monstrous overkill. If you're working on VDI like basis, Vmware suggest a 10:1 vcpu per core ratio as a starting point (reality is more like 6:1 in real world).
I'd value resilience over raw power any day of the week; have you considered a 2 node robo vsan instead? Exta node for resilience with shared storage. Would also be a bit more fun to play with than a big standard esxi host.
For the price of that homebuild server, you could get 2 or even 3 proper tower servers that would be more suitable.
I don't get it, really.
Are you doing it to provide your whole extended family a virtual machine? I really can't imagine what you could possibly be thinking.
Yeah, not that.
I'm a pro gambler and want to automate getting bets on at multiple outs.
Do you need full virtual machines to do this though? sounds like the sort of thing a single VM running multi-threaded software could achieve.
I think that whole thread is hilarious. Thanks for that
HUGE machine, VMs, piles of memory for 40 web pages. ROFL. yeah *3 GB of RAM per webpage* even chrome can't do that!
I ran several websites in a VPS with 128 *MB* of ram for years, all of them with quite a few users.
The web pages will be ran in chrome. Each tab will be 4GB each. per user.
Did you ever build this 'monster'?
Did seem an odd setup running 40 VMs with a browser in each...
Are you not going to run RAID?
I wouldnt bet on it
How are you going to manage 40 vms - how do you intend managing / interacting with 40 chrome instances? This in my view is screaming for some sort of sandboxing like tool - docker container, with centralised management. Windows Sandbox may be another easier tool.
