"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Is one Internal Server an option?  If so, I would recommend trying ESXi.  Virtualise the other servers.

If you need it to be purely online then Azure is probably your best option.

I have been using Azure now for a few nights - its good.

Is azure for testing only purposes?

No, the Azure platform can be used for production purposes as well as testing and development.
