    Howdy All !!,

    firstly hi im new and glad to be here, Please forgive my lack of knowledge about what im going to as i have very little Experience with Virtual Machines.

    I have several machines running in my office and would like to consolidate them into 1 server running VMS….

    i would like some held on deciding what hardware i need for this task.

    Machine 1:-

    is an unRaid Storage Server with 24 disks housing most of my company files, 2x Scraftch Disks. The drives are plugged into 4 sata cards and motherboard, The unit boots from a flash drive ‘ I have experimented with virtualizing the OS with much success !’.

    Machine 2:-
    is a Minecraft server hosting machine for me and a few friends id like to reap back the hardware for use on another project, i know i can get the server running near perfectly in a vm as i have tried this before hand. The server will have a maximum of 10 people on it at any one time so would need to support them.

    Machine 3:-
    machine 3 is an unusual machine for some to comprehend but ill try inform you as best as i can… Machine 3 is my firewall and routing machine, it is running custom software to protect my network from any outside attacks it basically separates my network from my broadband connection ‘Virgin media Superflub’. i personal feel the super-hub has a few flaws and that just me :D …it also handing my DHCP, DNS , Firewall, Routing, IP Monitoring, Several internal connections. ETC. ETC this is basically a heap of junk i decided to recover and use instead of binning lol

    There will be 2 Gigabit network cards ‘For the Router machine’ and a 10GbaseT fiber card for the Storage Server…..

    id like to know the hardware i would require to make this work… Motherboard, Cpu Ram,
