Microsoft Server Products Overview
Posted on 2011-03-18
Microsoft is giving our organisation major discounts on MS Server products. However i am not sure what most products are used for and what would fit our needs the best. Our network has 3 Server running Windows 2003 and one Server running VMware with 4 Windows 2008 VM's. We have 50 computer running either XP, Vista or 7, We have office 2007 pro on al those machines.
We can buy up to 6 products and up to 50CAL's per product
The Software we can choose from is the following:
1. Windows Multi point server Premium or Standard
2. Forefront Enterprise or Standard
3. Groove Server 2010
4. Lync Server Standard or Enterprise
5. Project Server
6. SharePoint Server
7. System Center -- There are a bunch of different version or add ons? Not sure
Could some please give me a brief explanation what each product is used for? From what i was reading so far most of them have to do with content and file sharing?
Please let me know if you need additional informations to answer the question.
