I have a DELL server:
Microsoft(R) Windows(R) Server 2008 X64 SP2 Standard Ed. Eng (5 CALs),FI PowerEdge T310 Tower Chassis for Up to 4x 3.5" Cabled HDDs with Quad-Pack LED Diagnostics Intel Xeon X3430 Xeon CPU, 2.4GHz, 8M Cache 8GB Memory (4x2GB), 1333MHz, Dual Rank UDIMMs
I am planning to install MYOB enterprise to run on the server. The server will be using terminal services. At the most there will be around 5 TS users using MYOB simultaneously.
The server will also be a Domain controller running AD, DHCP, DNS. About 10 users will connect to it on the physical site.
I am also planning to install Exchange 2010 onto this server. There will be about 15 users using the web interface, as well as regular imap to fetch their emails to pcs, phones, etc.
I am currently on a 1mbit upstream ADSL connection. The line will be shared by the 10 pc's in the office and the server (the 5 terminal services people, and the approx. 15 exchange users). All the PC's also use dropbox to store their files.
The company is set to expand in the next couple of years.
Is this a good idea? Is this plan future proof? Would it be better to outsource the exchange management? There company in question does not really have an IT department, so would rely on external contractors to manage the server in case anything needs updating or changing.
What would be your bandwidth recommendations for this setup?
Thank you, and kind regards, James
