    Hi Mazaraat:

    6 - 10 users are using the sugarCRM while 50 other users are not.  The Exchange server is running a single processor 3.02Ghz; 3Gb memory;

    Its a database application.
    So is Exchange.

    The horsepower of the machine isn't going to be a problem. Looking at the recommended spec for the application and that number of users, you are well within the requirements (taking in to account the healthy cynical opinion of "requirements" for an application).

    However the bottle neck with database applications is storage.
    Exchange is a high transactional database, so makes heavy writes to its disks. I would expect the CRM application to do the same thing.
    If you are putting the CRM on to a different RAID array or hard disk than Exchange and its logs, then the impact would be small if any.
    If you are putting the CRM on to the same arrays or hard disk, then you may well see an impact, especially when queries are being run in the CRM.
