I'm thinking of using Ubuntu and VM Ware Server to run Windows Server virtualized. I want to run Exchange Server and some minor apps on a hosted dedicated server with 6 GB RAM and Intel Quadcore CPU.
How workable is this?
Are the RAM and CPU enough if I need to run Exchange Server for 5 users over the Internet on a 10mbit uplink?
How difficult is it setup windows server and exchange when they are virtualized? Exactly how would you do this?
Alternatively, if you had to setup windows server and exchange for a small organisation with very limited resources, how would you do it? We are trying to avoid DIY, having a server on the LAN, but we're open to suggestions.
Thank you kindly.
