Hardware just for Eve-NG ( bare metal )

Post by kiteboy » Wed Aug 17, 2022 8:55 am

I'm looking at purchasing something like this

R720
2 x 12core E5-2697v2 2.7ghz
384GB RAM
2 x 1TB SSD 2.5
£621

or


R720 2 x E5-2695V2 12 Core 2.4Ghz
384GB RAM
4 x 1TB 7.2K SAS HDD
£800

Where should I put my money ? I'm simulating Juniper Network products , and my labs get quite slow and laggy. I'm not sure what effect disk and type of memory will have on this.
I think Udis said CPU cycles really are king here

I'm planning to install eve bear metal to get absolute maximum performance.
