server 2012 r2 Hyper-v architecture
Posted on 2014-02-07
we are looking to move forward and reconstructing our server environment with addition of hyper-v.
Hardware: 5 x 2950 (3.16 x 2 Quad 32 GB), and 1 x MD3000 power vault
Required: SQL, Exchange, Web
Software: Server 2012 R2
SQL Medium Load (Need always on)
Exchange heavy loads on newsletter days
What would be the best architecture for a company SAAS?
I was thinking
server 1 - Full install (DC, DNS, DHCP) + 3 VM (WEB)
server 2 - Full install (DC, DNS, DHCP) + 3 VM (WEB)
server 3 - Full install (SQL)
server 4 - Full install (SQL)
server 5 - Full install (Mail & file service)
Server 3, 4, and 5 connect to MD3000
again what would be the best architecture for a company SAAS?
