We're purchasing a new server to host Kerio mail server. Mostly, the upgrade is to faster hard disks.

I have the choice of using Windows Server 2008/R2 or SuSE Linux Enterprise server as the host OS. Windows has the advantage of familiarity. Does KMS run in SLES, and if so, are there any distinct advantages to doing so? We'd be on a bit of a learnign curve for that OS.

Thanks in advance.

I would run it on OS X Server, but that is just me.. Wink

Far easier than both Win08 & SLES!

Why not run ESXi ?

It's free and would allow you to run multiple OS and also have the opportunity to do good testing before update or major work on your system without ditching the production environment.

I'm running two KMS servers both on Ubuntu Desktop version 9.04 and 9.10. They run great and are WAY faster than the Win2K AS boxes we came off of. Plus it's free and there's almost no learning curve.
