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,

Exchange 2010 is the biggest difference of it.

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

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.

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