They are using ESXi and are currently asidutjng the amount of real RAM, between 256 and 512, according to the results of the beta. I use mine as a Puppetmaster and Munin grapher, and I must say it runs fine. That VM replaces a dedicated server that cost me about 60€.Physical servers are huge : dual-nehalem and 48 GB RAM (maybe 96, not sure). So yes, they are putting a hell of a lot of VMs on each server. But as you pointed out, most of these are idle. The real test will be to see if they manage to spread resources-demanding VMs accross physical servers, so everyone has what it needs. From my own experience, vSphere does that pretty well.Storage is based on Solaris, with a mix of SSD and SATA drives, accessed through 10GbE iSCSI. I guess they use SSDs as cache, like Sun does in their UnifiedStorage products.Anyway, back to the subject. I've had home servers some time ago, for learning purposes. And if that offer existed at the time, it would have saved me time (re-install takes about 5 minutes) and money (I've had 3 PCs running 24/7 at one point). And you might also want to consider energy efficiency : I don't think an old PC in a closet can compete with a professional datacenter (OVH's PUE is 1.12).
