    I'd like my server to offer these following features:

    • File Server
    • Schedule Parity disk (fiable, robust with checksum verification for avoiding silent data corruption)
    • Homegroup Laptop backups
    • DLNA Server
    • uTorrent and/or mldonkey server
    • couchpotato/Sickbeard
    • Plex Media Server (maybe)
    • FTP Server (maybe)
    • XBMC with GPU Hardware Acceleration
    • PowerDVD for bluray playback
    • Light Gaming


    unRaid with be my FileServer and I'll use windows 7/8 for xbmc and gaming box.

    For others servers (DLNA, utorrent, sickbeard, ftp) I have to define where they will best run. (unraid, windows or maybe a small linux?)


    So let's go with my questions:

    [*]Many of you seems to be interrested in ESXi virtualization, but are Llano APU compatibles with ESXi

    [*]If I virtualize windows 7, will Video Hardware Acceleration (DXVA) work ? Same with Bluray Software Player?

    [*]What about running windows natively, and unRaid as a virtualbox guest?

    [*]What is the best: ESXi with unraid and windows virtualized, or native windows with unraid virtualized?

    [*]Any performance or consumption significant penalities using virtualization?

    [*]Does UnRaid supports "add-ins" and offers DLNA, FTP, Utorrent or other features ?

    [*]If not, what is the best approach: add a linux virtual machine providing these services?


    Any help or advices are welcome.  ;)
