SBS2012 is now Windows Server 2012 Essentials and it does not include Exchange

Great article from Susan Bradley with links to resources here –

Bottom line:

  • There is no SBS2012.
  • It is now called Windows Server 2012 Essentials or WS2012E for short.
  • It does not include Exchange.
  • Or Sharepoint, or SQL.

I’ve been blogging about the new features of WS2012E. It is a great fit for really small businesses, ie those up to 15 users. You really need to look at your IT strategy to work out what is the best way to work in your business (or your client’s business).

AND… It is not the end of the world that the SBS product is dead. There are other new and exciting alternatives. Watch this space.
