Microsoft Posts Free Evaluation Editions of All .NET Enterprise Servers

Microsoft has pulled together the free evaluation editions of its .NET Enterprise Server line on one Web page.

The evaluation page features links to each of the products, where users can find information on how to obtain the evaluation editions, get product descriptions and check system requirements.

The .NET Enterprise Server evaluation editions are available either via a CD, download, or both.

Downloadable files include BizTalk Server 2000, Commerce Server 2000, Host Integration Server 2000, and Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2000.

Available on CD, with a shipping and handling charge, are Application Server 2000, SQL Server 2000, and a 120-day evaluation version of Windows 2000 Advanced Server.

Exchange 2000 Server can be downloaded or ordered via CD.

Microsoft officially retired the BackOffice name as the primary brand name for its server products with the .NET Enterprise Server launch in late September. The BackOffice Suite will still be offered as a packaged product for small- to medium-sized businesses.

Several of the evaluation editions available on the site are shipping, including SQL Server 2000 and Exchange 2000 Server. Some of the servers on the list are still in beta or release candidate form. – Jim Martin
