I'm looking for some feedback on what others are using for hardware for their RSA's. I'm looking to setup a couple RSAs to handle the load of imaging around our labs around campus. I tried using an Dell Optiplex 755 but found I was maxing out my processor and was limited to 300 Mbps, and also had troubles with my images working properly. I switched to a Dell Latitude 6510 and those problems seemed to go away. I way hoping for some best practices from people who are using RSA's.

Ive just started looking at getting RSA's setup where I work, I failed to find anything specific around hardware myself for RSA's via the forums etc.

jrscribner what hypervisor are you using for your RSA's ?

Ive followed the advice here http://itninja.com/question/should-these-system-dlls-be-installed-by-an-app.?64 and im going to go with ESXi after converting the RSA OVF to WMware Server http://www.kace.jp/support/kb/index.php?action=artikel&cat=58&id=1001&artlang=en (thats the plan atm anyway).

If anyone has any advice on what hardware is needed that would be great, I have read 250GB of hard disk is needed, what is recommended / minimum RPM on the disk, what are people doing about the NIC cards, gigabit or something more complex like trunked to improve performance, what about CPU and RAM ? Or simply what are you using and what does that give you ? If anyone has any white papers around this subject that would be great.

EDIT : Thinking about it I think the guide would be the K2000 appliance, http://www.kace.com/products/systems-deployment-appliance/tech-specs.php

Thanks in advance to anyone who gives some input,

Regards
