Office 365 Support Lab

I get a lot of questions on what hardware and software I am running for my lab server.

Server Hardware/Software:

Since I have an all in one server, I need lots of CPU, DISK and MEMORY. The CPU and MEMORY noted below. The DISK, am using 8 x 600GB SAS. I have 1 x 600GB reserved for the OS. I know this is not fault tolerant, but if it goes down, I can recover quickly enough. I have 7 x 600GB in a RAID 5 configuration for my data volume.

I am running Windows Server 2012 Standard with Hyper-V as my operating system.



Virtual Machines

Here is my current configuration for my Office 365 support lab.



Given the number of Virtual machines that I am running, there isn’t heavy load on the server.





Thanks for visiting and reading my posts. I am always looking for more ideas. Please comment or email me with what you would like to see.
