Listening to the podcast where I hear Paul Thurrott say that there are a small group of partners (apparently we are insignificant) who are freaking out because they rely on SBS to make money and if you move to the cloud it removes their ability to make money.
Paul, it’s not all about that… it’s about lousy Internet connectivity that means that one needs to stay more on premises, it’s about better uptime and reliability on an on premises box – as compare the uptime of Office 365 to my server and my server wins hands down. It’s also about what the client wants and needs for compliance and regulatory issues. It’s about getting the ability to be able to easily edit and adjust and customize Exchange to how you need it and Office 365 doesn’t give enough adjustability. One size does not fit most and not all small businesses want the cloud as the location for their Exchange.
Windows Server 2012 Licensing In Detail:
Interesting post there… Windows server 2012 is allowed to do 2 virtualization instances on the host (if I’m reading that right).
