Do I virtualize primary schools single server running everything?
I have just taken over a small primary school that has a single dc server running everything including Sims. This server is 4/5 years old and on its last legs. The school have said they can afford a replacement server but only have £1500 / £2000 to spend, which probably means me getting only 1 replacement server and dumping the old one. They also get the council to backup the server every night to an offsite location, but this is only supported for a single machine per school.
Is there any point in me virtualizing if I have only 1 server?
What would be my best options given such restrictions?
