Is a new Sims server needed?
Because of Capita dictating the end of server 2003 next year I'm going to need to come up with a plan to migrate Sims over to a new OS. The current server is a Dell PowerEdge 2900 dual E5410 2.33Ghz 4GB memory running 2003. This is the only server and also runs Exchange 2003 and everything else you would expect in a primary school.
I'm sure with just a memory upgrade this hardware would run server 2008r2 fine but I donít fancy wiping it and installing everything in the time frame I have especially if Exchange 2010 was installed.
So what I'm thinking of is an additional server just for Sims and keep the Dell server as it is for now. Am I going down the right road with this? What hardware would the new Sims server need to be with 5 Sims workstations?
