We are looking into purchasing a new server. I would like to use it for virtualization. To start with, just to setup a backup for the mail server, webserver and a DC. To start with we will use it as a backup for the email and webserver and for testing for the DC. HOwever, I don't know how to figure what I need in the server and if I should go with vmware or hype-v and why? Your advice and options would be most helpful. Thanks!
