Two-machine deployment and Hyper V

Hi guys,


I am trying to set-up a two-machine deployment and I am a bit clueless about servers in general so bare with me.


Its a dedicated server that from what I know is just one physical machine. I am not so sure what is meant by a two-machine deployment thought, does it physically need 2 machines to work or just one with a virtualisation would be ok?


Its a Windows Server 2012 by the way and it comes with Hyper V....all of which I have not previously used earlier than today.


My other question is that, there would be up to 10 concurrent users to the database using WebDirect and may be slightly more like 2-3 more at particular times but these extras would log-in for short periods. Do I really need a two-machine deployment for this? FileMaker suggests this but I am not sure if someone had performance issues with single-deployment.


Thank you all in advance!
