Westminster College痴 VMware ESX-based server consolidation project is in place and running very smoothly. The college痴 CIO details their solution and discusses why it痴 a success.

Westminster College痴 recently completed virtualization project is the second part of what began quite a while back as an ad hoc way to retire some critically aging servers. The servers were still hosting Web applications that we were in the process of phasing out; as such, we didn稚 want to buy new servers and completely redeploy those services, so we put into place a couple of VMware ESX (3 & 3.5) servers and used PlateSpin痴 physical-to-virtual (P2V) software to remove the potential of hardware failure from the equation.
interesting to see the physical infrastructure. however, doesn't include how they decided on what hardware to buy.

I'm more concerned with sizing the necessary processing power, memory, and storage.
