Re: [Xen-users] entry-level XCP server using Intel desktop components


I would recommend you use as many VT features as you can. You also need to 
consider whether you need more than one socket, for your first server board. A 
2-socket board will allow you to gain experience with NUMA/Quickpath. Either 
way, you should get a board that has a serial port (or a serial header on the 
board), for both debugging and to learn how to administer XCP via a serial port.

We use the Intel S1200BTL as a good single-socket server board. It has many VT 
features. The multi-socket boards we have used also use registered memory, so I 
can't recommend them as a simple multi-socket board.
