Hi experts!

Well, I am doing college work based in virtualization. We had to prepare all the infrastructure of the company based in physical servers and now I have to change this to a virtual environment.
I wont detail everything here because it´s just too much information. My question is: Can I use a Dell Power Edge R900 (using 4 quad core) as ESXi host and virtualize AD, DHCP, DNS, WSUS and File Server in a environment with 3000 users or one server is too weak for that?
I´ll probably use a SAN with FiberChannel too and I intend to use 2 servers like that for redundancy...

Thanks very much,
