New Dell PowerEdge server recommendation.

This question is not answered


We planning to change the company's server.

Currently we have 10 users and another 5 which are using terminal services.

The new  OS will be Server 2008 R2.

The server roles will be: File services, Domain Controller Services, Print Services, Terminal Services and maybe Fax Services in near future.

Also will be two SQL Servers (2000 and 2005).

The File Server will be around 150-250 gigs.

Currently we using a Proliant ML370 G3  with 1GB of  Ram and Intel Xeon Processor 2.8 GHz/400 MHz  with Server 2003 and it appears that works beyond his limit.

I'm thinking of T310 with 4GB and 2x500gb sata will be ok.

What is your opinion? There is any type of online calculator that suggests the server model after choosing the server roles and services?

Thank you  in advance.
