    Hello, I am wanting to buy a PC for home lab use.
    I want to run CUCM, CUPS and CUC on the same machine using Esxi.

    Are any of you guys running the three on a single PC ?
    If so, can you please recommend RAM, processor etc specs that will enable me to run these 3 apps on the same machine ?

    So far, I have been told I need to make sure I use an IBM processor and I should put each of the three apps on it's own hard drive.

    Any more advice would be greatly appreciated.

    IBM Processor??? I think you perhaps mean Intel.

    If you're planning on building up an ESXi box then the more ram you can afford to put in it the better off you will be.

    What OS are you planning to run these apps on? If they are disk intensive you may want to consider running the three VM's from an SSD rather than spinning tin to help with your IOPS.

    Yeap, running 3 X CUCM's and 3 x CUC's, 1 x CUPS on a single HP GL110 16GB RAM 2.4Ghz processor, on VM ESX 4.0, runs as sweet as a nut. Never tried it on a PC.

    I have CM 9.0 and Unity Connections 9.0 running on a 3.4 GHz i5 with 16 GB ram, I am currently trying to configure the VM for CUPS, however I do not think it will run all 3 at the same time, it is a little slow now with just the two.

    Will let you know for sure if I can get CUPS to load.

    Yes, IBM are producing their own processors called PowerPC ;) It is a RISC architecture and there is nothing to do with Intel. However in this case I think he meant Intel x86 indeed.
