Hi,

There are two people who are interested in moving from SBS 2003 to Office 365. Only 2 people working at their current site and they are going to be working at home not their office anymore. One person will be working in different location so both will be working in different location but working together.

What would be the best solution for this case?

Office 365 would be the way to go? or have their small server in their home for centralizing their PCs and storage?

Hello,

Office 365 is pretty perfect for this situation really.  The client will have access to the latest MS Office software, a better Exchange server and no cost of new hardware.  OneDrive can be used to share folders between different users.

There are a few draw backs.  For example if they have an accounts program it may only be available to one of them (you wouldn't want to host the files).  

Do they have any third party databases / software? - This is the only reason why I would put a small server in really.
