I second this, and additionally suggest that you strongly consider
multiple VMs in order to isolate these functions from each other and
allow you to size each one per the performance/capacity requirements
of its task(s).  Yes, you could do all this on one system, but if
it's breached, then you lose everything.  Isolating functionality
-- including firewalling systems from each other as necessary -- gives
you a fighting chance of containing the damage.
