Microsoft Small Business Server 2011 - what's in it for you?

Greg Boyle

great move for cloud services

The release of SBS Essentials next year is poised to be a huge opportunity for VARs to embrace cloud services. Taking a small peer-to-peer network to a server based network is a great first step that will be made easier by the ability to implement services into the organisation seamlessly without the infrustructure and management overhead that would usually be required. It will make it much more pallitable for small business and generate services revenue for the VAR.

SaaS solutions that are already gaining traction in the SB market such as security solutions like Worry-Free Business Security Services from Trend Micro <http://uk.trendmicro.com/uk/products/sb/worry-free-business-security-services/index.htm> will help to round out a complete solution in the VAR kit bag.
