Egnyte File server on Dell Poweredge 2900

Our company currently utilizes Egnyte Office local cloud on a Netgear NAS 1500.  We also have a Dell Poweredge 2900 with windows server 2003 32bit. It's small office and don't have any real Active Directory requirements.  The server basically does DHCP and DNS and serve's some files.

We're trying to move away from the Windows server being a file server and have everything through Egnyte but would still like to use the Server itself.  Does anyone have any experience utilizing server's for Egnyte Enterprise local cloud?  I know the processor in the Poweredge is 64bit but the Windows 2003 is 32bit.  I'm considering either an upgrade to the server software or installing linux.  ELC runs via VMWARE Workstation or ESX but I think the base OS has to be 64bit.

The Dell PowerEdge 2900 is a little old for the latest version of VMware vSphere ESXi 5.5.

But it's listed on the HCL for 5.1.

Check the VMware Hardware Compatability Lists HCL here

The VMware Hardware Compatibility List is the detailed lists showing actual vendor devices that are either physically tested or are similar to the devices tested by VMware or VMware partners. Items on the list are tested with VMware products and are known to operate correctly.Devices which are not on the list may function, but will not be supported by VMware.

Thanks for the info.  I think we decided to just use our Netgear NAS and not the Windows Server for file access.  Thanks.
