We need to replace our SBS2003 server (physical server) with SBS2011. We will also need to setup 2 or 3 additionnal servers (SQL) for our new accounting software, document management system and BESX server. We have an environment of 35 users.
We are looking at the possibility of running all of these servers as VM's under vmware. Do you see any problem or performance issues in running the SBS2011 as a vm ? Or since the sbs2011 it is acting as the main DC, Exchange server, file server, dhcp, RWA, VPN server, etc should we run it on a stand alone physical server and put the other servers on a vmware host ?
I am curious to see what is the industry standard or "Best Practice" regarding SBS environments and virtualization.
