Quickbooks Enterprise and Quickbooks Pro on Same Server

Hello Experts,
I have a customer that has a store and a restaurant next door to each other, he currently runs QB Enterprise 11 in the store, he is adding POS software to the restaurant an wants to run the QB on the same server. I first tried to purchase more license for the Enterprise but QB will not sell 11 license any more, they want a complete new purchase which is $4000.00 plus for a 10 license version. That is not an option. The POS software can use any version of QB back to 2002. What I am thinking is adding a QB Pro or Premier with 3 or 5 license for the restaurant.
My question is, can I run 2 different versions of QB on the same server, I have 3 partitions on the Server 2012. If so, should they be on different partitions? How exactly should I go about installing, etc. Any an all advise would be greatly appreciated. Thank You in Advance.

You should can run QB Enterprise V2011 (you have this) and QB Pro V_different on the same workstation. I have done this. Put the databases in different folders on the server. You should be able to scan both folders with the newest server engine.  In general, it all should work.
