Brian Rosenfelt, principal in Skoda Minotti Technology Partners, was featured today on Crain's Guest Blog. In his article, Rosenfelt shares news about Microsoft's plan to ditch Small Business Server and start dedicating efforts to cloud computing.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
Microsoft recently announced that its soon-to-be-released Server 2012 platform will not include a Small Business Server edition. This will be the first time since 2000 that the popular “SBS” platform will no longer be available.
Microsoft Small Business Server is designed for smaller organizations (under 75 users), and bundles Microsoft's Server, Sharepoint services, and Microsoft Exchange platform into a single package. This meant an inexpensive way for many smaller organizations to have their own in-house mail solution, without the need to have multiple servers and systems.
This decision will impact many of the clients we work with and the future, and in my view is sending a very clear message: Microsoft is committing itself 100% to the cloud.
