New VMware ESXi Whitebox Servers for Home Lab

I’ve been thinking about retiring my old home lab server hardware for some time now. I’ve had two little HP ProLiant ML110 G5 servers for 5+ years. They’ve been good little machines and didn’t cost too much to run, but I can now tell that time has taken its toll on them. They each have a dual core Intel Xeon processor and maxed out at 8GB of RAM. With the management components of products such as vSphere, vCAC, vCD, etc. nowadays requiring at least 8GB per appliance, these machines have basically been made obsolete by the requirements of most enterprise applications today. 

So I needed to find some hardware to replace these two servers. I needed to find a server, or “whitebox” that meets the following requirements:

  1. Needs to be affordable to purchase and to run 24×7;
  2. Needs to be quiet;
  3. At least a Quad-core processor;
  4. Needs to have 32GB of RAM per host.
