produit: AMD FX™-8320 Eight-Core Processor
configuration: cores=8 enabled cores=8 threads=8
virtualisation instruction : amd-v
fabriquant: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
All the time I have 4 virtualbox running machines on a debian 7 wheezy
- SME Server
- Centos6 Build Server
- debian 7 local repositories for development (debian, centos, epel, smeserver, nethserver, mirror.de-labrusse.fr)
- debian 7 for Jdownloader
After that I need to have more machines running for development, at least one by bug/feature tested or fixed and often I can play with 10 Machines or sometime more…ok you can pause a machine and start another one
before that I had an AMD Athlon™ II X4 640 Processor but it was sometime too slow. In fact I don’t have time to waste and I don’t like to wait, therefore I have chosen a powerful (and not expensive) processor.
Actually the X server doesn’t waste time processor when I watch movies mainly because I use VDPAU with a little nvida card (less 30€).

With that processor and the amount of ram, I have a nice sand box. Most of time I use virtualbox by ssh with an export display, but I have also phpvirtualbox if I need to manage quickly virtual machine or across the local network.
