Windows Server 2008/Sharepoint Server 2010 Best Practices & Licensing
Posted on 2012-08-25
Hi Experts, I have a few new system config and licensing questions. We are planning on moving from SBS2003 and WSS3 to Server 2008 Standard and Sharepoint Server 20120.
1) First, is server 08 standard and sp server 10 standard a good match up? We only have about 50 users but really want to grow beyond what sbs offers.
2) What do we need to do in order to reach specific parts of Sharepoint via external/public Internet? We'd like a small group of users (20) to be able to access Sharepoint via the web when off site without requiring VPN. Is public access possible and/or recommended?
3) When we purchase the server 08 software and cals, do we also need additional cals specifically for Sharepoint users or do their server user cals work?
I know that's a mix of different issues but am hoping to get all of these answered by those of you that I trust rather than just relying on all of the whitepapers I've read. Thanks as always!
