Let's Get Small Server

Things are getting smaller in our tight economy. If you're not outsourced already it's probably just because IT jobs are fairing better than your typical service job. Perhaps one bright prospect in our ever constricting belt-tightening scenario is Microsoft's rollout of two servers aimed at the small business market.

Microsoft last week started letting its TechNet and MSDN subscribers get their hands on Windows Home Server 2011, now available in 64-bit, which supports up to 10 PCs. It also released evaluation copies of Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials, supporting up to 25 users with no Client Access Licenses required.

Are these the solutions that small businesses want? Are there good partner opportunities associated with the small business market or are the margins just too narrow. Weigh in with Doug at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
