I assume you mean an existing working environment that is up and running without issues?

Dell Poweredge R510
Intel Xeon X5660 (2.8GHz)
16GB Ram(DDR3)
2 x 600GB SAS 15K Rpm Drives (OS) Raid1
4 x 600GB SAS 15K Rpm Drives (DATA) Raid 5
Perc 6/i Integrated
Windows SBS 2011

30 Users, Exchange mainly, SQL is installed for Sage 200 Construct software

No performance issues at all, all running fine for 2 years +
AV is Vipre Enterprise

Any other info let me know...

No hassle, remember the SAS drives make a world of difference, so if you are saving money by playing with SATA you will suffer I find...cheers

Quick follow up question for smckeown777,

Did you put Exchange and SQL in separate VM's or install them together?

Ok, thanks. I came across your post while trying to confirm that the all-in-one SBS2011 option was perfectly valid for less demanding networks, which it is.
