I'm going to run BI in a VM. My host server has 24 cores and 96GB of RAM. I can either run BI on one of my existing Server 2012 instances or spin up a new Server 2012 or a W7/W8/W10 instance to host it.
Any thoughts on the best host OS and proc/ram allocation?
They do exist. Have a job with a Cisco core and all Etherwan hardened switches in a large parking structure. Somewhere around 300 cameras, IP intercom, paging speakers and kiosks. Mix of POE and POE+ and some ultra high power POE via separate midspans.ecborgoyn said:Yes, technically speaking there aren't splitters. BUT there are POE+ (11at) powered switches that provide two POE (11af) power sourcing ports. I know that Netgear as such a device but there might be others. Depending on location, this device might need to be an extended temp range 'industrial' switch and I'm not sure if this exists.. SO if running a second CAT drop is VERY difficult and/or expensive, one can deploy this type of switch.
