Some IT Pros have asked for a build that supports 64GB RAM so they can run more or larger VMs. A 64GB build requires me to use a traditional ATX form factor motherboard with more DIMM slots. This will use more power and will cost about $900 more.
I realize cost is more of factor than size to most folks, but this website shows a comparison of ATX vs. Micro-ATX case sizes if you're not aware. The microATX case I usually go with is the same form factor as the "barebones" case shown on the website.
I created the poll below so I can determine which build you would like me to go with for my 5th generation server. I really appreciate your input.
Which new Hyper-V server build would you be more likely to buy?
I will be bringing my latest Hyper-V lab server build to the lab session and will provide tips on how to build, manage, and use the server to advance your IT career. I hope to see you there!
