Nice, but far from perfect… (See comments for info about vPro and AMT)My home ESXi box was already pretty green, drawing 45-110W depending on load despite having a quad core Xeon and 16GB RAM. Since all my storage was in two 4×2.5″ Synology units pulling about 12W each, I knew the server was the next area for cutting power consumption. The i3 NUC was widely reported to work fine with ESXi, but the i5 and i7 NUCs were also on the horizon. Once I verified the motherboard chipset was not changing, and the i7 being cancelled, it was time to snag a couple i5 NUCs and set up a mini-cluster. I purchased 16GB of low voltage memory and a tiny 4GB thumbstick for each NUC as well.Going from one tower server to two NUCs gains me redundancy and twice the RAM, but similar performance (1×2.8 quad to 2×2.8 dual) and of course DRASTICALLY reduced power usage and physical size. At idle, they draw 8-9W each, and at full load between 25-30W each. With additional internal components, you can expect that…
