I’ve mentioned that I have a small, old server available to me. I went through yesterday and shut down all of the VMs not being used, so now I have some space to work with. The server is a dual Xeon X5650, 2.66Ghz, 12M Cache,Turbo, HT, 1333MHz with 64 GB RAM. It’s running VMWare, so I can spin up a VM or two (or more) and set them to folding.

I’m looking to optimize the VM configuration for the folding task. Would you give one VM a lot of resources or would you set up a cluster of VMs and distribute the tasks? What OS would you run and how would you optimize the configuration?
