I am having to put up a disaster recovery site on the cheap for work that will be located in a datacenter a few states away. This system just has to have our 10-12 production VM's on it along with about 2-3TB of storage. The VM's themselves only take under 1TB.

I have a HP DL160 G6 with dual 5639 cpus and 72GB ram coming and that will cover us (right now production is 2 E3-1230v2's with 32GB ram each). There are 4 drive bays.

Would any of you set this up as a all-in-one? I can throw 4 3TB drives in it, use something like FreeNAS or one of the other ZFS systems and just have to send that and the firewall over (pFSense on a Atom based supermicro server). This would only become temporary production if something were to happen to our main datacenter (fire, earthquake, etc). I will be syncing files to it daily.

Its on essentials plus isn't it?

You might be right. I replied in the middle of my work day which is not a good thing sometimes when I am going in 50 directions. I read this forum to take a quick chill pill. :D
