After 3.5 years of development, I am happy to announce that we have released Essential Business Server 2008 to manufacturing (aka RTMed)! I have seen the product come along way in that time and am very proud of the work the team has put into EBS.
I have been meeting with customers these past two weeks (and will be again in the next couple of weeks) and I can say with great certainty that all of our research, planning and customer connections has paid off very well. Although I don’t like hearing about the struggles that IT Administrators have with their IT today, its nice to know that EBS 2008 will help with many of those issues.
EBS 2008 reduces the pain of installation and migration, turns unmonitored environments in managed ones, deploys patches and software, gives the business world-class remote access out of the box, enables the IT Administrator to easily setup Windows SharePoint Services as an intranet, and finally integrates with numerous 3rd party (not in our box) programs.
November 12 is the REAL big day—that’s when the product is officially launched and will be generally available to purchase.
