My question is I have two very powerful servers both are Dell PowerEdge R410 16GB Ram and 1TB Drive and with 2x Xeon Processor 2.13ghz.
We have a heavy traffic site is it worth it using those two dedicated server side by side or install Xenserver VM in there and create 2 VM on each server with like 4GB Memory VM and with 400GB disk space and 3CPUS on those two servers totaling 4 VM on both the servers for load balancing and web cluster. Or just use those two servers dedicated our OS is CentOS and we are using INTERWORX CP which offers a very decent cluster solution.
How much resources does the site utilize on both servers? I think that will tell you if you can fit them inside of VMs on each with the specs you mentioned.
