I am IT Manager for a business of 50 employees, spread over 4 offices.
We have two physical servers: 1 with SBS 2008 and Exchange 2007 + 1 Terminal server. Both of these servers are DELL Poweredge 2900 Model and each is 6.5 years in age.
These servers are growing more and more buggy mainly do to OS's having run so long (and hardware slowing as well).
I want to replace with one physical server, and run (3) visualized 2012 Server OS's, Exchange, Domain Controller, and Terminal Services.
It's a bit of a hard sell to company owners but in my opinion the time as come. If these servers were to fail our company could easily be down better part of a week as have to order replacement hardware, and re-build system from scratch.
AM I JUSTIFIED IN MY THINKING HERE??
