Do you have this posted under the correct topic--perhaps under network infrastructure?

Perhaps you want to post this under the Unified Communications topic, not Unified Computing?

A question on UCS B-series: Do we have any sizing guidelines for using VMware on our B-series?

Since sizing is completely based on the type of workload there is no generic guideline but for VDI workload for example we have published a whitepaper that details sizing for VDI environment with ESX 3.5.

We are currently working on two other sizing guides for VMWare which should be available in December:

- VDI (View 4) with VSphere 4

- Microsoft Exchange in VMware environment

In addition there is a VMware sizer tool for UCS in the works.

See if any of these help:
