I was thinking of going almost double of what we actually need on the storage size (meaning double the total capacity of all VM hosts combined). I will be using a Linux repo, and thinking about doing software RAID 1 as well. I just want to use software RAID1 since it will eliminate a RAID card as point of failure (and needing to find another with exact firmware, etc...). I think RAID 5/6 is over-complicating things - as both vShpere servers do RAID6 and other backups will be in place for user-data.
VM Images combined will be a few TB.

Box 1 Xeon 4-Core 2.40Ghz :: 2GB RAM (maybe can dig up another 2GB)
Box 2 Pentium G3260 3.20 16GB RAM
- one will be the Proxy and the other a repo.
I know there are other things to consider like offsite storage of backups, etc... - etc... But taking things as they come right now.
