Help Dual Booting PowerEdge T620 with Windows 2008 Server R2 and Ubuntu 14.04

My University Lab has a Dell Power Edge T620 configured in a multi GPU setting running Windows Server 2008 R2 (Tesla K20c for scientific computing and Quadro K600 for video). However I need to use Ubuntu 14.04 , so I was thinking of creating a bootable USB and dual booting it like i usually do on laptops

Is this possible ?  I've never worked with Servers before and I'm trying to figure out how do I go around doing this.

The current system has 2 one TB harddisks in RAID1 configuration , so logically only 1 TB is accessible on windows machine, I created two 500 GB partitions (C drive with Windows and a empty 500 GB for installing Ubuntu )

Is there any tutorial that I can follow ? will dual booting be complicated by the RAID1 configuration ?

Thank you
