Component
Specification
Notes
OS
Server 2008\R2 64-bit only (Std,Ent and Datacenter)
You cannot install Hyper-V role on 32-Bit
Ram
Here I have one Role…the more you have Better performance you can get!
You need to remember that you working with 64-Bit architecture and that means that you don’t have any 4GB limitation!
HDD
Notice my Ram Specification
Always plan your storage by looking at the future and not for the needs for today!
Processor
You can chose AMD or Intel processors, but you need to check first that you have support in Intel-VT or AMD-V
Those feature needs to be allowed in the BIOS!!!
Nics
At Min’ you must have 2 NIC’s
You always need to remember that it’s better to use a dedicated IC for management only!
