SBS2011 running SQL Proprietary Database Slow

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
We have a server that's running SBS2011 (41GB Exchange Database) and a Propietary custom designed SQL database (~ 1.6GB)

The Server is a T610 Xeon X5670 2.93 with 24GB Memory

In Task Manager it's showing Exchange using around 14GB of memory and SQL using a little under 3.   There are about 10 desks at the office accessing the database all day and occassionally complain about database running slow.  I'm assuming it has something to do with the memory utilization.

Any recommendations outside of getting a 2nd server to host the SQL database?
