Hello all,
i am trying to research what would benefit our company best and what would be a better infrasturcture. and see whats the best solution, and figured i would get your feed back regarding this.

We have 5 servers (exchange, DC, backup server which is also an app server, sharepoint, front end portal server)
we have about 5 TBs of data (DAS MD3000 storage)

we need to be able to share the network with our 2 sister locations in other provinces.
no vpn has been set up.

I am looking into either virtualizing our servers or going with Office 365,.
I know there is a free ESX version but not sure which solution would be better.
still in the search..

what is your recommendation?
