1x I7 960 3.2Ghz VS 2x X5460 3.16 GHz
i have a node with about 15 container HyperVM. on i7 dedicated server , and now want to move to colo with used server with 2 x X5460
i need you edvice about moving from curren to planned:
Curent Server :
1x Intel® Quad-Core I7 960 3.2Ghz
12 GB DDR3 RAM
2x 1TB SATA Hard Drive
2 x Intel Xeon Quad Core X5460 (3.16 GHz) CPUs with 12 MB L2 Cache
16 GB DDR2 FB-DIMM ECC RAM
2 x 1TB SAS 7200
So please help me is the planned server really better than current server ?
What will you do at the colo if the motherboard dies? Don't just consider the CPU/spec differences, consider worst case scenarios.
Use RAID10 instead of RAID1 for virtual machine nodes whenever possible, it's not that expensive and it provides a lot more throughput.

Well the new server is obviously better...What is your current bottleneck? what areas does your current server lacks? RAM is easy to calculate, but cpu and hdd is a bit tricky. High cpu usage is often caused by bottlenecks in the hdds. In that case, upgrading cpu will do you no good. You're better off with 4x500GB sata drives in RAID-10. If you have the cash for 4x300GB (or 4x600GBsas) drives then go for it. If you go with the sas drives get a good RAID controller to go with it.
