We have one machine
Intel Xeon X3440 @ 2.53GHz; 8 GB RAM on which we would like to run windows and linux installations. We have decided to go with Hyper-V since we are mainly focused on Microsoft technologies. This machine is supposed to run staging builds of some of our websites and hold our repositories. The linux installation is needed for minority of projects that will run on unix in production.
Is this machine sufficient enough to run
Windows Server 2012 and
Debian wheezy? If so, should we go for Hyper-V server or Windows Server 2012 with Hyper-V role? Licensing is not an issue, as we are in BizSpark program.
