Is it possible to install RWA (like SBS 2011) as a feature set on 2008 R2?

I love the RWA interface on Windows SBS 2011. I was wondering if it is packaged as a feature set or if it can be installed on Windows 2008 r2. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yes - take a look here - its a little different than the SBS version, but supposed to be better

Or, if you don't want to go to all that, add a Windows Home Server or a Windows Storage Server Essentials to your network.  You get RWA and the former will backup 10 workstations, the latter will backup 25 stations.  You can add as many of these systems as you wish.

He short answer is no, there is no RWA outside of the products that ship with it.

Geodashes answer is only partially correct. You can use standard technologies to get remote desktop access through one gateway machine, but remote desktop is only one aspect of RWA. you can also emulate the file access feature of RWA by setting up a webDAV feature. But the silverlight interface, the single sign-in, and the experience that takes all those disparate parts and wraps them up with little or no admin configuration...the hallmark that is RWA...this is and continues to be a unique feature to the HSBS family of products such as SBS and those that fl-fly fishing lists.
