new server solution advice for 50 users
Posted on 2014-01-15
We currently have a client with 1 main office and 3 sub offices
the 3 sub offices either vpn (which is very slow) or dial in via terminal services to the terminal server
the mian office has an sbs 2003 server running exchange and acting as domain controller but is underpowered and exchange is outdated for their needs.
We need the nearest like for like replacement for 2 new servers - to take them through the next 5 years.
Their internet is not great either.
However I am thinking 1 new windows 2012 standard R2 server - on a ml350p G8 server with raid 10 - 4 x 2tb drives etc
I believe that they will need to go for a seperate office 365 Exchange in the cloud solution (which will be seperate from the local servers??)
1 new smaller server to act as the terminal server for the 12 remote users?
Any advice on the best way to go and anything I need to bare in mind please?
