Hi All

I work in the IT Sector and I have recently started to hear people talk about vanilla servers and vanilla networks...can anyone tell me what it actually means? Is it just a buzz word or is it a type of serve?

My current thoughts is that its just a clean server or new network...i just dont know and feeling a bit dumb when in conversations reffering to 'vanilla' server/networks.

Cheers

The term "vanilla" generally refers to nothing special -- just the default setup for any server, software, or application.  Meaning, nothing fancy, no special configuration, just plain vanilla!

so when someone says I have a vanilla server with microsoft 2008 or sbs2008 loaded, what they are acctually saying is I have a microsoft 2008 server with basic out of the box configuration..right?
