I need help in determining the total amount of Virtual Machines that can run on one Physical Server for my project.I have looked a several forums and there is not one single answer.Many IT managers have different ways of determining the number of Virtual Machines that any host can carry;however,there has to be a single rule of thumb that any person can use to determine the amount of VMs.
How can I determine the amount of VMs that can be hosted on one server that has the following: Intel Xeon E5-2407 v2 2.4GHZ CPU,80 GB of ram and a 7TB storage space?
I do know that the following affects the amount of VMs:
- The work load of each VM.
- Gigs of Ram.
- Processor Type and It's cores.
