We are planning to deploy a webserver soon which will need SQL server for our web applications.  Looking at the costs it seems cheeper to use SBS 2000 than Win2k Server and SQL server as separate products.  I'm sure there must be some sort of Microsoft catch here so can anybody tell me are there any limitations to using SBS as a standalone webserver as opposed to the separate products.

Thanks,

Stu.

The main difference, which will affect a Web Server is SBS is limited to how many Users can connect to it simultaneously. A Small Business Server network is limited to 50 connected workstations at a time, this includes remote Web Server connections and printer connections.

The other main concern is Clustering. If your website requires full redundancy and no downtime, you will not be able to Cluster.
