Lotus Foundations is IBM’s Magic Box for Small businesses | Web 2.0, SMB and Lotus Foundations:
“and yes, we don’t require you to buy 2 servers to do the same job. (*hint* Microsoft Small Business Server 2008 requires a dedicated SQL server).”
For the record, SBS 2008 standard is a SINGLE box solution. SBS 2008 Premium gives me/us the FLEXIBILITY of not only having a second Win2k8 license but we can then place the SQL 2008/2005 on the second server.
SBS 2008 does not REQUIRE a dedicated SQL server.
“I can’t afford to hire a engineer to take care of my network 24/7” Nor can I, nor do I. Most small businesses still need a Windows server to be the foundation for their file and printer sharing.. not all.. but many do.
Still a single box.. IF you want it to be.
