Why not just rent a VM? I'm sure we can do something special for worthy NFP. Give me
a shout tomorrow.

I'm after a bit of help.......The story...
I have some community/not for profit websites/vm's I need to move and have arranged
some hosting, but it's only 1U, (current space is 4U). I really need to run ESX as
I'm running VMWare Server 2.0 right now but would like to progress (I have ESX 4
running on commodity desktop hardware at home, but the upload isn't fast enough).
Trouble is as there is little capital available for a server purchase and the two 1U boxes
I have lying around don't work , I need to find a good second hand option.
My googling has turned up nothing concrete as I need to gaurante that whatever I buy will
work. I have looked at hosting this offshore but as the hosting is very good value its not
cost effective. (If you WAND boys read this, I'll move your VM onto this too...)
Do you have ESX 3.5 running on older hardware and if so what is the spec/model/etc. This
needs to be 1U, disk space only needs to be around 30GB. I don't think the budget will
cover hardware that will run ESX 4.0
