We are setting up a medium sized company with the following servers suggested to us - Company size (~150 Users)++

Core Servers

Windows Server 2003 [x86] - File server/DHCP/Domain Controller/AD  X 150 users

Windows Server 2003 with MS Exchange 2003 Standard - Mail server - X 150 users

Application and DB servers(Central Office) :

Windows Server 2003 with MSSQL Server 2008 Enterprise(Server runs a Web App in ASP and accepts direct connections to a windwos .NEt application) - X 60 Users

Windows Server 2003 with MSSQL Server 2008 Enterprise (Server hosts a Database which supports 2 windwos based applications) - X 10 users

Windows Server 2003 with MSSQL Server 2005 Standard (Server hosts the database which supports 1 Windows .NEt app) - X 30 Users

Remote Location

Windows Server 2008 Standard with MSSQL 2008 Standard (Replicates one of the above servers to a remtoe location) X 20 users

Windows Server 2003 with Exchange 2003 Standard (replicates Exchange from central location)
