Help needed to rationalise servers
We are at the stage where we have a chance to get a couple of new servers. I'm trying to work out what is the best way to allocate our needs. We have approx 130 computers with 300 users.
At the moment we have
Sun - PDC, apps, file, dhcp, dns, backups, print
Mercury - Exchange, pxe boot, DC
Venus - Intranet & VLE
Mars - ISA & Web filter
I was thinking about replacing Sun and Mercury with new machines and use the old sun with a couple of extra drives as the backup server (with LTO tape drive attached)
Is this a smart way to go? Would a SAN box be a better option? An lastly what sort of specs would everyone recommend?
