We are doing the following and are quite successful with the setup:
With that we set up one host with Hyper-V (2012 R2 preferred).
We just finished migrating our last SBS 2003 out to this setup (though with two servers and a few extra licenses).
For larger firms we can set up two identical servers and have licensing in place to allow for the following:
Because Exchange and SQL have their own built-in redundancy features we have the option to configure in-guest clustering to build out the required redundancy for them.
Or, we can go with two servers with dual SAS HBAs and a dual controller SAS direct attached storage (MD3220, VTrak E610sD, DS3524) and set up an actual Hyper-V Failover Cluster. This option works very well for the very downtime conscious client.
