Any server gurus here? How do I split a dedi into 2-3 VPS?

    I just got a dedi with pretty good specs.
    Wondering if I can split it into 2 or 3 VPSs and install Windows server 2008 on each of them?
    I'm paying an extra $60 a month for a VPS (for my VA) so it would be cool if I can cut that down.

    Specs:

    Core i7 3770 @ 3.40 GHz
    32 GB DDR 3 memory
    3 TB hard drive
    1 GBPS line

    I don't have physical access to the server. Currently, it has Win Server 2008 installed on it.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks. I was thinking about it and wondering if its possible to install VMWare with remote access... I mean wouldn't it be a 'virtualization inside a virtualization' situation? :p

    I'm no guru so I don't know but I'd go with SolusVM.

    PS. As long as you have root access then you should be able to install it remotely.

    PSS. It would be best to contact your host though just to confirm that they allow this. If that's the case then they should easily be able to install it for you as long as you pay for the license.

    If you ask your host they could do that for you quickly, if they are nice enough i don't think they will ask for any extra, as you will pay a nice sum for them already. Unless it is totally naked unmanaged solution :)

    You have a dedi, so there 's no virtualization before you use VMWare :) Virtualization means you create virtual hardware (processor, hdd, screen) via software (vmware, parallels, virtualbox) and install the OS in there.

    Regarding remote access, in the advanced options of the VM, you can enable VNC with one click.

    Dont install VMWare the software is good, but expensive (not ESXi) as hell when you want some real features.
    I didnt count the free version in (which is nice and works)

    For opensource Approches

    - Proxmox (Remote Web Access and also Templating and Backupping possible)
    - OpenVZ (Never used it)
    - Virtualbox also allowed at some point a Webaccess with 3rd party programs.

    Under Windows you can also install qemu, but the problem for you is to find out if you have Virtualization extenstions enabled in BIOS.

    If not, all your attempts to run virtualization will end with barely usable solution.

    I would highly suggest using Citrix Xenserver as the main "OS". From there you can setup and monitor as many VPS's as you want. It has some features in the free version that you have to pay for with vmware. Since it's also the main OS, it has very little foot print on usage itself.

    If you can re-setup the system go with centos linux and solusvm with xen HVM virtualization. (You will need custom centos setup here however)

    If you want more simple solution - use virtualbox. Free, easy, simple. If you have 1 ip on your dedi you might want to order more to use bridged networking as it is the simplest way.
