I'm about to install CHR in a data centre. While I'm big fan of Proxmox, videos, blogs and forum posts suggest there is still a problem with the virtio drivers in KVM / QEMU and the conclusion is that Hyper V is the best hypervisor for CHR.
So, if this is still the case, I wonder if you would be so kind as to recommend which version / release of Hyper V to run please?
Would we require the full Windows server version with GUI (I'd rather keep it as light as possible) or would the core / free version suffice?
I'll be running three instances of of CHR separated into roles for iBGP / VPLS concentrator, PPPoE server / NAT and eBGP (we just take a default from our upstream) and I may run our DNS and RADIUS servers on these boxes also.
Anyone running a similar setup?
Our hardware is:
2 x Dell R430 servers each with:
2 x Xeon E5-2667 v3 8 core CPUs @ 3.20GHz - hyperthreading OFF
2 x Intel X710 dual port 10Gb NICs
