  • Question

  • Hi All

    Am putting together a specification for an IT upgrade for the organisation I work for, the last upgrade of this kind was in 2007.  While not my area of expertise I need to specify some server hardware specifications.  In the last upgrade in 2007 the following specifications were put together and I will to know if thse are still relevant of what they should be respecified to.  Currently organisation runs Server 2003, Office and Exchange 2003.  Plan is to move to Sever 2008, Exchange and Office 2010 and Windows 7.  Thanks in advance for any assistance.
