Today, we publicly announced the product family in which Essential Business Server is a part of--Windows Essential Server Solutions--and the new family web site. The Essential Server Solution family also includes Small Business Server and the web site unveils the features and functionality in Small Business Server 2008 for the first time. It also contains a frequently requested "which to choose" page to assist you in deciding which solution is the best fit for your company or client's company.
We also unveiled a the new graphic (see below). IMHO, it does a great job of visually conveying the value of the Essential Server solutions. For those of you lucky enough to attend the Windows Server/Visual Studio/SQL 2008 launch in Los Angeles on February 27th please stop by booth C3 in the Pavilion to get a wickedly cool T-Shirt featuring both of the graphics shown in this post!
Oh, and last but not least the Essential Business Server team now has a blog (although there's no content on it as of today). I may end up posting content to that blog and sunsetting this one. Only time will tell...
Can you reinstall any of the servers Roles if there is an issue with one of them?
Yes, that is the plan of record although its not fully implemented in the current builds
