ESXi Free Host is hosting this guest on a Asus mini itx mobo, i5 3470 proc and 16GB of ddr3 ram. Also running are a couple Nexenta NAS instances, a CentOS server and a Windows 7 guest. Storage is a hybrid mix of SATA HDD and SSD. HDD are WD Scorpion Blue 500GB drives and the SSDs are Samsung 840 Pro drives.

Nice, I have ESXi 5.0 running on an E3-1230 with 32gb and LSI / raid 10 with SAS drives. I thought it was fast.
Would be nice to talk the guys above me into doing an SSD datastore. Although Win2k3 on this server blows away our old dell server, looks like the windows Pro guests would really benefit from SSDs
