We are planning to run an Intranet site on Windows Server 2008 Web Edition. The site will also use SQL Server 2008 Express, installed on the same virtual machine. We are using VMWare Server to host the VM. The web server will be running EPiServer CMS, with say 10 concurrent users.
As you may have guessed, the budget is tight and we cannot buy new hardware.
I guess I have 2 concerns:
Is this going to perform poorly, or is it possible that with enough CPU and RAM thrown at it, that this configuration would perform ok?
Are there any hidden Windows or SQL Server licensing gotchas in this configuration?
