By day I am a IT PM and I have decided to invest a bit more in my tech skills after completing ITIL, APMP and CISMP recently.
I've getting the Microsoft infrastructure software such as Lync, Sharepoint, Exchange, SQL and I bought an FX8320 with 32GB for a base Server 2012 build. On top I want to build some VMs to use this. Primarily interested in BI and Sharepoint.
However, I do want to branch out and look at possibly using the box for logmein, dabling in Ubuntu and possibly use as an HTPC. I plan to house the device in my HTPC Silverstone LC20 with a HD6450 card that I already have.
From what I can see there is no point doing AMD-V for a HTPC on the server. So besides from running XMBC from a USB, are there any options?
Finally, what do you use your Server 2012/2008 for domestically that helps?
