I am looking for people\articles how to make virtual machine hosting from scratch.
Treat it as a hobby (I just never did a full-fledged virtualization project, I want to know how it's done)

For experiments:

There are servers (4pcs) on the base (the smallest one is indicated):
Intel Xeon E5405 @ 2.40 Ghz (8CPUs), ~ 2.4GHz,
8GB RAM
2TB ROM

conventional cars (7 pcs) characteristics (also indicated minimally):
i5, 8GB, HDD 1000

Software licenses
Windows 2019, 2012, SQL Server Datacenter

There is a room where the Internet is connected.

I am looking for someone who can shed light on how full-fledged projects for virtualization hosting are made.

the goal is to host virtual machines.

I know that I need to configure a Hyper-V failover cluster.
those. need 2 servers + 1 storage server

hosting control panel - 1 more machine (I think a regular i5 PC will do)

database servers 1 for SQL and 1 for MySQL

although they are more for hosting sites, and since. the goal for conventional cars is....
In total, according to my calculations, I need at least 4 servers for hosting virtual machines, 6 for hosting sites.

everything can be increased if necessary, add memory or hard, for example, plug in 1TB.

 I will install, for example, Windows drivers and remote control for further work.

Imagine that you create a hosting of files or sites and one user needs to be given at least 3 gigabytes of memory or even more.
If you want to do something worthwhile, then for the first 2-3 months you need at least several hundred TB memory.

In most cases, to create your own external server, you need to install software - this is a web server, PHP, MySQL, and other applications. As a web server, you can use the popular Apache, which is easy to install and configure. For details on how to make a virtual server, you can always contact the specialists of 3data data centers. You will probably be able to avoid mistakes and get a fully functional virtual server in the shortest possible time.

In some cases, you need your own virtual web server on your own computer to host projects. This option will allow you to use modern Internet technologies (JavaScript, PHP, CGI, Perl, SSI, etc.) and test the operation of Internet resources or new scripts. There is no need to pay for such web hosting, and there are a lot of amenities from it, since, under equal conditions, it does not differ in any way from a regular dedicated server hosted by a web hosting provider.

By creating a virtual server on your computer, you can reduce the installation and debugging time of forums, web site directories, online stores and any other resources.
Such a solution can work if there is no access to the Internet under any operating system, be it Microsoft Windows, Mac OS or Linux. After debugging and checking the operability, the finished Internet resource can be transferred to the web hosting company's server.

In some cases, to create your own virtual server, you will need to install certain software — this is a web server, PHP, MySQL and other applications. As a server, you can use the popular Apache, which is easy to install and configure. To learn more about how to make a virtual server, you can always contact the specialists of 3data data centers.
