This is a Great Lab setup for home labs and testing
In my search of the ‘ultimate affordable’ Lab setup for VMware VCAP/VCP/… exams, i went through a lot of possible set ups.
In the end, i started to build a powerful desktop pc in which i intend to virtualize my vSphere environment. The reasons that made me chose a desktop PC running Windows 7 with VMware Workstation 8 to do this:
– Everybody has a pc. So why not buy a lightning fast pc which makes your daily application work at light speed (email/surfing/office tasks) and gives you a perfect lab!

Hi Ayo Dada,
Can i just ask, “What hardwares models and types do you have for your VMware lab?
e.g. what RAM, CPU, MB,
Also is it a HP Proliant ? Xeon 5500 ?
Can you also run ESXi, Win 2012 R2, SQL all on the same machine if it is powerful enough ?
I build my lab on a Microserver N40L – 1.5GHz DC, 16GB, 1TB, it slightly slow but that was what i could afford at the time, the more RAM the better but this host doesnt take more that 16GB
there is a new model check the spec on HP website or serverplus
