Eight years is a long time in IT. So for your customers with the 2003 edition of SBS, Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2011 couldn’t come fast enough. It is the ideal opportunity for you to upgrade their server solution to a powerful on-premises solution. And it’s available in two different versions for an even better fit with your customer and an even easier sale.
The new Small Business Server 2011 Standard has been updated to the most current Windows Server 2008 R2 server technology, to make it well worth your customers’ while to upgrade their current server – and to give customers installing new even more reasons to choose Microsoft Windows.
Designed and priced for your small business customers with up to 75 users, SBS 2011 Standard gives them enterprise-class server technology in an affordable, all-in-one solution – a solution that gives their data more protection, makes their users more productive, and enables collaboration and working from virtually anywhere.
Automatic daily local back-up of all business critical data on the server means your customers can stop worrying about the status of their IT and start concentrating on their core business objectives, knowing their crucial business information is always safe. Simple recovery features also make it easy to restore the data should disaster ever strike.
Productivity is increased through enhanced features such as email, internet connectivity, internal websites, and file and printer sharing.
For example, the new Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 SP1 included in SBS 2011 Standard is a powerful upgrade from Exchange Server 2007, and includes improved Outlook Web Access (mirroring Office Outlook more closely than ever), and improved Exchange Management Console, and a host of other features covering retention policies, archiving options, automatic mailbox and database repair, and help for users to organise and prioritise communications more efficiently in their inbox.
With the newest version of Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services included in the SBS Server 2011, users can make the most of collaboration, with complete security wherever they are. Access is improved with Remote Web Access (formerly Remote Web Workplace), so that they can share internal documents, co-ordinate calendars, manage issues and participate in discussions from almost anywhere with internet access.
Remote workers can even connect to PCs in the network and run applications, as well as having secure access to their files and documents through any common Web browser.
So overall, SBS 2011 Standard is easy to deploy, easy to use and easy to maintain. But there’s more to Small Business Server 2011 than just Standard.
