As far as I know, you don't need a Chinese OS on a server, just to store and serve Chinese text data for a Web application.
You do need to be able to enter the Chinese somewhere, and view it in a browser on a client somewhere. But these don't have to take place on that server.
And as you point out, you also need to test things somewhere, presumably in addition to the browser-based application, maybe in a database client tool, also on a client? or using an IDE, or using Ant and JUnit, somewhere.
