I have been asked to mirgrate an existing (but way to slow) ESXi setup to UCS.
Setup contains of one Windows AD for ~20 users, Group Policies for several things including MS Office, DNS/DHCP for ~150 devices, plus 4 Windows 7/10 VMs running some proprietry software we cannot replace with FOSS.
Hardware: hp Server with 2x Xeon, 256GB RAM, 5x hp-HDs as RAID-5.
Fileserver is a separate Linux/Samba box autheticating against AD which we like to keep.
I understand UCS has virtual machine managment, so while ProxMox sounds pretty promising (migration/backup of VMs to hot standby hardware, integrated Firewall) I wonder if it is worth the extra complexity (like to keep it as simple as possible)?
As a side question: is there a way to migrate existing ESXi (non-AD-) VMs to UCS
Thanks in advance!
