we are about to upgrade our server (which is currently a simple P4) hardware-wise to accomodate 25 users? The server would be running Exchange and would be a file-server as well.
I'm just simply not sure I can justify "real" server components (Xeon cpu etc).
we are currently using a P4 machine with 3GBs of RAM and running SMB2003 with Exchange off it. it also acts as a file server and obviously it would be the same role later on. We already made our peace to purchase the new SMB (2008 I think) along with the new Exchange.
I know its not a classic problem so to speak but it is a head-scratcher nonetheless. Thank you.
