I need to build out a Hyper-V Development environment for a small business. The budget for this is fairly tight, so much for the “best practises” approach…
Basically we’ve converted one of our development boxes into a Hyper-V server (Windows 2008 R2 DataCenter full installation with Hyper-V role enabled). We’ve been pretty happy with the performance and RAM, just running into space issues. I’d like to add more space to the computer using a Drobo S to store the VMs as this box as an eSATA port on it.
I know there is a lot of literature out there about using a DroboPro for this sort of thing, but it’s just a matter of $$$. Has anyone has any luck trying to use a Drobo S for VM storage?
