image Timely new poll in Australian Reseller News asking partners how many of their clients have expressed an interest in Essential Business Server 2008. Check it out.

The continuing launch & interest in EBS 2008 is very much a slow burn because the solution offers so many different things to so many different customers - and thus partners need to understand the product, the processes & positioning before being able to take advantage of the opportunity.

I also talk extensively with ARN, CRN & a variety of other media to help get the word out. Check out ARN's coverage of the SMB server space here, & their specific thoughts on the SBS/EBS launch here.
