Windows Small Business Server (SBS) 2011 Essentials (Windows Home Server 2011) now available for Download!

Yesterday, Microsoft announced that the evaluation version of Windows Small Business Server (SBS) 2011 Essentials is available for download at Microsoft.com.

The evaluation copy will be valid for up to 180 days, and you can fully activate it to a full version with a product key anytime within the evaluation period.

SBS Essentials is an agile new product designed and priced as a solution for businesses that have fewer than 25 users and do not have a client/server network in place.

SBS Essentials gives small business customers an easy way to get their infrastructure in place using the simple-to-deploy server. Also, SBS Essentials ensures that business-critical data is regularly and automatically backed up, the health of the network is actively monitored, and users and computer management are easy and straightforward. In addition the comprehensive extensibility built into the product makes it easy to take advantage of a wide variety of cloud services and third-party additions.

SBS Essentials also provides the ability to manage the server and its connected computers remotely using a web browser, greatly simplifying the job of the typical small business’ IT partner.

SBS Essentials licensing allows you to connect up to 25 users or devices to the network without having to buy additional CALs.

You can get the evaluation copy at TechNet.
