What alternatives are there to Small Business Server?
Posted on 2014-02-20
Now that Microsoft have pulled the plug on SBS, what alternatives are there for a small business that doesn't want to, or can't use the cloud? One of my clients has a about 10 users using SBS for Exchange and SQL server to run their orders system. They have a very poor broadband speed which at best hits 2mpbs so running anything over it is pretty much out of the question. They're currently stuck on SBS2003 due to the orders application which has not developed as fast as it should have been (a bit of a cottage industry I think). In April SBS2003 support will cease and so they really have nowhere to go. What are others doing in this situation?
