Small Business Server 2011 Essentials Ready for Liftoff

Small businesses should be pleased to know that Windows Small Business Server 2011 Esssentials has been released.

SBS Essentials can handle 25 end users and is aimed at file sharing, server backup and running cloud apps and on-premise business apps.

Microsoft is also working to connect Windows Phone 7 so that administrators can manage SBS Essentials remotely via smartphones. SBS Essentials is different from Microsoft's Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard product, which supports up to 75 users.
