I haven't done an MS server installation since SBS2011 so am after a little advice for a client proposal.
Client is looking to migrate to a domain environment for management but is also looking to run some client applications on the server,
My understanding is that a Windows Server 2016 Standard is good for 16 Cores & supports installation on the Physical as well as 2 virtualised environments on the same hardware.
My thinking at the moment is a HP ML350P, Dual Processor Quad Core E5-2609, 64GB RAM. 4x 600GB SSD in Raid 5.
Setup the Server 2016 Host as the DC/ File Server
Setup 1st Virtualised Server 2016 as the application Server (Sage Construction, Paperless)
Setup 2nd Virtualised Server 2016 as a Terminal Server for remote sessions to the Application Server (this solution was suggested by application vendor.
They have approximately 15 users on site plus some remote users. It would be good to make the remote users more integrated into the office environment.
Wondering if I can get some feedback on the setup/hardware, tips/tricks, pitt falls.
