Since the above mentioned server has enough resources (2x Quad Core Xeon 2.66 GHz with HT and 48 GB of RAM, a dual port 10 Gb NIC) I thought of making it a host for a Windows virtual machine using KVM. Given the resources and current setup we have, at the moment it wouldn't be practical to implement both servers as VMs on top of a bare metal hypervisor.
