we are looking for insight and information on creating two VMware machines to replace our current physical hardware.
current physical hardware is:
two Solaris 10 sun Sparc 2 sockets, 4 cores per CPU socket, 8 threads per CPU, 16vcpu 64gb RAM.
Each of these machines currently host two PeopleSoft Application servers domains per machine.
These two machines during heaviest load normally utilize 36GB ram and less than 35% CPU utilization.
we are looking to have the new VMWARE machines to replace these two physical machine to be able to process this work load;
with room for future growth.
thank you in advance for any insight; and information from other customer experiences in this type of implementations.
