Why Upgrade to Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2008?
Sure, Microsoft Small Business Server 2003 has served you well. But if you’re serious about boosting business productivity, it’s time to give a hearty welcome to the Microsoft Windows SBS 2008. No doubt about it. The newcomer is an astounding leap ahead of Microsoft Windows SBS 2003 system in a number of key ways.
Let’s start with user-friendliness. With the SBS 2008, getting started is a lot easier than it was with its predecessor. Installation is a breeze because of its newly automated settings. All users have to do is enter basic network options to get the whole thing going. Everything else is done automatically. Now take a long at the 2008 console. You’ll see it’s been completely revamped, so it offers far more information and interactivity than the 2003 entry. One of the most amazing features of the revamped console is that it helps Value Added Resellers identify a wide array of problems at customer sites in real time. For business owners, these enhancements translate into definite time savings. And this never hurt anyone’s bottom line.
The SBS 2008 matches time savings with cost savings thanks to vast improvements in energy efficiency. Again, the new system stands far above the SBS 2003 in this department. How? For starters, the new version simplifies power management with features like support for processor performance states (P-states) and processor idle sleep states on multiprocessor systems. Equally impressive is the system’s Hyper-V™ , a technological marvel allowing consolidation of servers onto a significantly reduced number of machines. The upshot is a dramatic drop in power consumption – without impacting performance. Who could ask for anything more?
The energy efficiency of the SBS 2008 was convincingly showcased by a series of tests conducted by Microsoft engineers. One set of tests showed that Microsoft Windows Server 2008 OOB kicked into action with up to a 10 percent power savings over Microsoft Windows Server 2003 at comparable throughput levels. Additional testing revealed that Windows Server 2008 required less power than Windows Server 2003 while running on identical hardware at comparable throughput levels. The SBS 2008 promises the same results for any business.
