My reasons for doing it this way is that it will be highly resilient for our business and will be a lot easier to scale up as we need it to. This is an overkill setup for what we are running currently but I can see us becoming more dependent on self hosting as it is cheaper than using the cloud for random things we need to run. I have already spun up servers for monitoring, helpdesk, and backups. All would have not existed had I not had some old servers to play around with.
Is anyone able to help me sanity check some infrastructure that I would like to deploy at work? We are in the process of moving away from an SBS2011 install and a very small VMWare installation (only 2 VMs currently). I would like to put in a virtualisation platform that would allow us to use more services as our needs grow. I would also like to use as much OSS/FOSS stuff as possible without making it too complicated. Any opinions or recommendations are welcome.
