I'm in the process of migrating a SBS 2003 to SBS 2011. The new server is installed on a HP DL360 with ESXi 4.1, having 38GB RAM, a 2.53Ghz E5649, 4*300GB SAS RAID1+0. My questions are:
- Should I install the SBS Premium Add-on on a separate server or just keep one server and install SQL on it?
- What's the benefit of having a separate server just for SQL, which takes additional ressources (e.g. RAM and disk space for OS) to keep everything running?
Please note that this is a setup for 15-20 users and not many heavy duty processes will be running.
