Hi Ivan,
	In our setup we are successful using Quad Core CPU's blades. From my point of 
view the most important part is to decide the hypervisor: Xen or KVM. This 
decision as you mention could be driven by your hardware (e.g. HVM 
support...). Then check which linux distribution support best the hypervisor 
of your choice. The requirements of OpenNebula are so generic that you should 
be fine whatever you choose. 

Finally, as you probably know, OpenNebula is available for Ubuntu so you may 
consider using Ubuntu server as well. In that case, KVM will be the obvious 
choice for the underlying hypervisor.
