Advice on moving from two servers to one w/ VMware

     
4:00 pm on Nov 10, 2013 (gmt 0)



I currently have two dedicated servers. Here are the specs:
Server 1:
2x Xeon 5450 Quad Core
8gb ram
2x 146gb 15k SAS drives

Server 2:
2x Xeon 5520 Quad Core
12gb ram
2x 146gb 15k SAS drives


I currently use server 1 for running php, serving files, and xcache, and server 2 for mysql.

The problem is, this is probably more power than I currently need (and am paying too much for it) and would like to consolidate to one server running ESXi, splitting the two.

Question - how would you set it up? SAS drives in RAID? How much ram total, and how much allocated to web/database? Does splitting one server even make sense in this application?

Some insight would be greatly appreciated!
