    VPS [Windows 2008 + Exchange + OCS]

    Hello all,

    First of all, let me tell you that I've used the search function for this forum, but none of the keyword combination lead me to an expected answer, so that's why I did open a new thread.

    I'm interested in your advice in the following topic. I need a VPS with Windows 2008 (or 2008 R2) that would allow me to test Microsoft Exchange and OCS solution for a while.
    The products (Exchange and OCS) will be legal trial (180 days from Microsoft). The traffic will be relative small, as I need this only to test, so maximum 2-5 users).

    I've seen VPS providers advertising Win2008 VPS, but I don't know if on that VPS I'm allowed to test what I've explain above.

    Do you have any advice what do search for? Or you can recommend me a VPS provider for my needs?

    Thank you!

    You need to look at either Hyper-V or Citrix XenServer based systems. Stay away from Virtuozzo on this.

    You will also need 2-4 gigs of RAM (Exchange can be pretty RAM/CPU intensive, as can Windows 2008).

    You also didn't list your budget, so that would probably help as well.

    Thanks!

    Totally agree with Douglas.
    Exchange requires at least 2GB Ram or the VPS will be dead slow.
    Hosts don't check what software you install on VPS unless there's abuse report.
