Redmond Untangles WEBS

Windows Essential Business Server, we hardly knew ye. In fact, not many customers knew ye at all. As Scott Bekker explains, the mid-market-focused EBS (we only call it “WEBS” because we like making references to actual webs) never really found a niche. And its late-2008 introduction couldn’t possibly have come at a worse time for the economy. Microsoft hyped this thing big time a couple of years ago, but Redmond and its partners just couldn’t spin enough of an argument for WEBS to convince customers to get stuck into it. So, Microsoft is clearing away WEBS and will make up for its absence with other servers and capabilities.
