Just curious - what was your storage solution for the above ?

I rolled out an ESXi 3.5 cluster ( HA + DRS ) for an engineering
development group.

We went with NFS to a NetAPP FAS instead of  ISCSI or FC.    Since the
NetAPP FAS supports  Single Instance
Storage (De-duplication )  I found  the storage used for many similar
VM's was only 1/5 the space of a non SIS array.
