How many Windows guest machines would fit in cramped a online.net DEDIBOX® MD 2014?
I'm asking this for the people that already have experience in hosting Windows KVM VMs and has a notion of that's too overkill or not.
This isn't for selling or to provide a hosting service, it's for my own project.
I need as many Windows KVM guest machines as possible in a server, with acceptable performance. They can all have minimum resources, and need to simply be running a software (similar to data mining) for a theoretical project.
The DEDIBOX® MD 2014 has a Xeon E3 1230v3, 32GB of RAM and I plan to get the SSD version, which has 2x 120GB SSDs in hardware RAID1.
I'm planing to use Windows XP, for obvious reasons.
Now, if I create 64 KVM guests with 512mb of RAM, all sharing 100% of the CPU, would it be too overkill? It's definitely doable with Linux, but I'm not sure about Windows.. The software that will be running on them is not too CPU intensive, I plan to mine on every guest. Mining speed is not relevant, I just need each guest to be part of a single mining pool.
