    If you use hyperv it is all familiar mmc point and click stuff. Not that xen server and VMware aren't just you will presumably be more familiar with MS

    VMware ESXI is so easy to configure for a basic setup like that (pretty much install it and away you go) - it only starts getting mega complex with multiple ISCSi devices - VCenters etc etc never used Hyper-V in anger so can't comment on that.

    One critical item of hardware often overlooked is the UPS - check how old it is and consider replacing, especially if adding hardware.

    One other thing - if you end up going down the EES route you get their security facility FOC, so you can consider using this as and when your next AV renewal comes up.

    Vm sounds great then. UPS, good point, check. AV, hmm, I think we have an LA Sophos agreement... Will have to double check that. Right.. that's great thanks guys. Will go check up on that hardware and read up on EES etc.

    Do yourself a favor and stay away from Sophos or mcrappy! If you are only running one or 2 servers I would say a Borri rotation series 2ka will cope with all that and the switches fine.

    Depends on how many staff you have. Different tier price plans depending on staffing levels

    I believe it goes like this
    1-10
    11-25
    26-50
    51-100
    101-500
    501+

    Special 3-19 school with 110 pupils.
    From another thread... 65 outright for Windows & Office per PC, or 38 per ft staff member annually.

    What are the extras EES provides?

    Looking at the staff room, I'd say less than 27 staff
