I have a dedicated cord 2 duo quad with 4GB ram, 2TB hard drive space from a RAID10 array. I need to use this server to host Zimbra Network Edition plus mobile accounts for at least a few hundred people. I also need to host less than 20 very low traffic websites.
I've posted a couple of posts on here about vmware and zimbra etc... So what would any of you do? To get the most performance out of Zimbra, and run an isolated instance of lamp w/control panel.
Would you run 2 vm servers? Would you install Zimbra natively and run a vm server with your lamp install? Run the lamp natively and run zimbra in a vm server? What kind of performance can I get running it natively vs running it in a vm?
I need to be able to host at least a few hundred mailboxes on this eventually.
Thanks for your input!
