I am investigating the possibility of using UCS as the main OS and KDE & UMC the main front end for a PC “workstation” to run VMs using KVM. I want to use a Windows 7 VM accessed through VNC? as my standard desktop and to use other VMs running Ubuntu, Centos and OpenSuse etc to test and integrate desktop and server applications (accessed through VNC or a browser). All VMs would have access to the core UMC services (network, security, domain, LDAP, storage etc). I also plan to use the services on this “workstation” to support a couple of other PCs on my home LAN (domain shares, LDAP, groupware, email, DNS, http proxy etc.
I think I have enough hardware (Intel i7 2600 CPU, 16GB RAM 3TB of disk from 6 separate disks, nVidia GTX570 etc) though not sure if it is all suitable or supported by the Univention OS (wifi USB is TP-LINK TL-WN821N v4) and nVidia GTX570 GPU.
Can anyone see any problems achieving this or a better solution that would achieve similar results?
