I am looking to do a migration of my companies network. I was planning to virtualize Exchange, but am wondering how many guests can run along side it on a standalone ESXi box with DAS storage.
We have roughly 50 users connecting to Exchange plus some users phones. The server is a DL380 G7, with 2 E5640 Xeon processors and roughly a terabyte of DAS storage in a RAID 5 config.
There are 4 nics, one dedicated for Exchange. I know it is a tough question to answer but wondering if any one else runs Exchange in a similar fashion and what other guests you have running along side it. I'm afraid if I put other guests on the box it could create issues. Currently there is only 1 other guest, a DC.
