Server 2003 box for file/print and SQL/IIS with 100 users. Single or separate servers?
Posted on 2004-09-13
I am migrating my office of 100 users from netware to a windows enviornemt. I purchased a Dell PowerEdge 4600 with the following specs:
1. RAID 5 with 180gb avaible for use (SCSI 10k drives)
2. 2.8ghz Intel Xeon Processor
3. Redundant power supplies
4. Gigbit nic plus 2 additional nics
5. Other goodies
This is going to be a file and print sharing server but I also will need to run SQL server and IIS to serve a few applications I wrote. My question is, can I put SQL and IIS on this server or should I setup a separate server for these. SQL and IIS will have minimal traffic with, at most, 30 people accessing it at the same time. And as far as file sharing goes, we deal with small word and excel files.
Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!
