  • okay..You can use P2V to convert al servers to Virtual Machines

    here you are some ideas

    2 Hyper-v Hosts clustered with 8 VMs running on it

    You should have another physical server as Domain Controller " beside the DC VM on the cluster"

    Would recommend  you to have Applications redundancy through clustering or NLB in the future.
