Windows 2003 Small Business Server - good, bad, ugly?
Posted on 2006-06-29
I have experience of using Windows 2003 server for various applications however I have no experienced of Small Business Server.
Can someone give me the low down on whether SBS is a good idea or not?
I'm looking at a deployment to 10 ish users - I realise that SBS saves on licence costs however buget for once here isn't a problem.
The requirement is for SQL Server 2000, Exchange 2003 (possibly), File & Print, Centralised Fax solution (inbound and outbound), remote access would also be good.
Everything will be installed on one server. I'd obviously be looking for an antivirus / anti spam solution to cover this lot as well.
What might SBS give me that the separate products together wouldn't?
Any advice greatly received.
I'll divide the points up between responses.
