Small Business Server 2008 was released to manufacturing yesterday, which means it will be widely available on November 12th launch.

Windows Small Business Server 2008 is designed for small businesses. It is designed to work with existing technology, build on Microsoft best practices, and delivers a comprehensive network at an affordable price.

  • Have virtually anytime, anywhere access to your business desktop; including e-mail, files, business applications, and more.

  • Share resources and equipment, such as Internet access, printers, and fax machines, to get the most value from your technology investments.

  • Enjoy compatibility and scalability. As your business needs to change, Windows Small Business Server 2008 can change with you--easily add users, servers and applications, or expand into other Microsoft technologies.

  • Work more efficiently and add more value to your business with an integrated administrative console.

  • Work confidently with a top performing network based on Windows Server 2008 technologies.
