Single server vs. multiple server setup

    Hi! :)
    Is it better to run one single server or is there any benefits by running a multiple server setup for minor/home use?
    I'm thinking about everything from performance, maintenance, updates, etc...
    (At the moment I'm running one single server without use of the DNS or VServer.)

    My server is just a little "home ESXi host" (Xeon E3-1230 v5 3,40GHz CPU & 32GB RAM) and its primary job is just to run as a mail and MySQL-server.
    The web-server part is just for testing, since I have my domains hosted elsewhere and I'm not hosting for anyone else (yet).

    The reason why I ask, is because its time to upgrade my servers (Ubuntu release upgrade) and I therefore thought about setting up new servers rather than upgrading.

    And I'm sorry if this already have been asked/answered... But I haven't been able to find any info about this.

    If it's only for home use. Do a all in one setup, as that means less things to track and keep note of.
