So what does this mean for you? It means that SBS Essentials is now ready to go to the OEMs, in a little bit it will be on Technet for Action pack and then after that able to be sold to your customers.
What should you be doing right now? Checking what hosted email vendors you’ll be aligning with. Ask them their plans for integration with SBS-essentials.
And what about hardware? While this is 64bit it’s much less in RAM due to the fact that it offloads Exchange and SharePoint to hosted deployments.
