Given a Windows 2008 R2 Standard VM with:
- 4x vCPU Intel Xeon E5620
- 1GB RAM
- 15GB HDD
What can I do to reduce the amount of CPU/RAM/HDD utilised by the OS?
- The VM will be used exclusively as a web server, so all other functions can be considered non-essential
- Server Core is not an option as I need to be able to use certain tools that do not have good command-line equivalent
