It’s been a day since Centro became Essential Business Server and there’s something about the name that bugs me.
When I pack “the essentials” for travel, I pack one bag. http://www.roadandtravel.com/travel/traveladvice/2006/travelingessentials.aspx When I take a long term vacation, I have multiple bags. I don’t think Centro is “just the essentials”. I think it’s MORE than the essentials. I think it’s at least a two week vacation worth of servers. It’s not an overnight bag worth of servers. And if you really had to define an “essential” business server.. wouldn’t it be SBS? As it is the perfect overnight rolling bag that makes travelling a breeze and makes a gal agile and able to hop on a flight, not check baggage and fly stand by on flights if I have to, better known as the server that not only solves all my needs but is compact and agile and perfect for an agile firm.
Okay so the luggage analogy may not be the same… but is anyone else besides me thinking of luggage? Essential as a word to me means traveling light and being agile. Centro or EBS’s three servers are a overnight case with rolling wheels that allow you to be secure and compliant and bigger and longer stays and…. well… it’s a Complete Business Server.
Well that’s just my wacky thoughts anyway.
