It seems like VMWARE has a reputation for providing cheap hardware, but the company has a long history of releasing low-cost hardware.
VMWASP host was the company’s first Linux-based host.
And with a lot of competition, VMWares low-priced Linux hosts have been a hit with users.
But the VMWasps newest hardware, VXLAN VX-710, was announced a few weeks ago and the price is pretty cheap.
The host supports both VMware and VMW, as well as Intel CPUs, but it is priced at $1.25/GB (a little over half of what you would pay for a comparable VX764 VX10 host).
So, is VXlan VX710 the best Linux host for under half the price?
Let’s take a look.
Hardware specificationsVXLAN is the name of a VX host platform developed by VMware.VXlan supports both VMW and VX, and it is also compatible with Intel CPUs.
However, the platform is primarily optimized for Intel CPUs and doesn’t support other hardware architectures.
Voxlan supports VX and V, but not VXW, and therefore supports Intel CPUs only.
The platform supports Intel Core i5-3230U CPUs with HyperThreading and 4MB of L3 cache.
However the platform supports the same hardware on Intel Xeon E5-2690V, Xeon E7-2650V, and Xeon E9-2660V.
Intel Xeon E-series processors are often used for virtualization in production environments.
VxLAN is optimized for the Intel Xeon processors, and has support for the same Xeon processors on Intel CPUs as well.
The VX Host is designed for VMware’s own platform.
The VXHost is powered by a Broadcom BCM43430 APU.
The APU has two SATA ports, two USB ports, a LAN port, and an HDMI port.
The motherboard has a PCIe x1 link.
The platform supports dual-band IEEE 802.11ac wireless.
It supports 802.15.4, 802.17.0, 802 and 802.21.VLAN VLAN support supports 802 and Bluetooth4.
VX hosts can support up to eight VLANs simultaneously.
The 802.16.2 standard, which is a common standard for 802.1x, is supported by VXhosts platform.
It is supported on the Broadcom APU and it supports 802/802.1N and 802/1Q.
The 802.2.0 standard is also supported on Broadcom and is supported using the same chipset.
The Broadcom 802.14.4 APU supports 802AC and 802X with 802.10 ac.
The Intel Xeon A-series CPUs can be used to run VX LAN.
VLAN Vx hosts can be installed in dual-bonded, dual-link-based systems.
The system supports dual wireless (802.11n) and IEEE 802-17/18/19/20.
