SBS 2008 vs SBS 2011

Hello,

I am now just looking around to find out what are the benefits of the new SBS 2011. I found out some microsoft brochures, but does not see anything that is not included in the sbs 2008.

Can you please help me out on that subject :)

Thank you,

There is a nicely summarized article; "New and Enhanced Features in Windows SBS 2011 Standard" in the SBS blog:

Exchange 2010 is the biggest difference of it.

The difference is that it is a 2008 R2, exchange 2010 and sharepoint foundation.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

SBS 2008 has Server 2008 and Exchange 2007 and comes in two editions - premium and standard
SBS 2011 has Server 2011 and Exchange 2010 and comes in two editions - standard and essentials and both can use a "premium add-on" which includes another server license and SQL.

Further RWA now includes a method of file access that wasn't there in 2008.  

And finally, 2011 will be supported longer.
