Meet Pikachu:



This is my server going on 4 years now, still runs well for what I'm needing. He had a dual core 1.6GHz AMD CPU with 8gb ram, 16tb of hard drive space (4x 4tb drives) and runs ESXi off an internal 4gb flash drive. My main VM is a Windows Server 2008 enterprise server that is needing a rebuild. It would be nice to upgrade it to 2012.

Meet an ugly HP PC that really needs an update - with Windows Server 2012 the sky's the limit! (Dora the Explorer cup not included) but cup holder is still fully functional!

This box runs a couple of VMs for file and print services and firewall (pfsense). It would be great to move from ESX to Hyper-V, and the two VM usage rights that Server standard comes with will allow me to upgrade my backup DC and run it up on this host as well

freitasm: Just resize to 560 pixels width and that would make any image fit.


I did and it was 1.2 Mb

freitasm: Resize to 72 dpi as well and save as JPEG as PNG are terrible for image size.


To be eligible for this does it have to be uploaded to GZ?

Not at all. It is just that some third party take a long time to load and sometimes people post pictures that are too wide. Playing to Geekzone gives a resized picture and BBCODE.

I've been using this AMD FX 6100 with ESXi 5.5:






Currently running a VM with Server 2012 R2 trial to practice with VMs, Active Directory and other server based roles. Would be great to be able to get a permanent OS to play around with :-)

Here is my new haswell hyper-v server for my lab vms and plex front end.
It's already running 2012 eval, would be nice to get a license before it runs out :)
