MultiPoint – not just for Education

Boon Tee is in Adelaide talking about Windows MultiPoint Server.

One thing that came up today in feedback is that people don’t understand that it’s not just for education.

It’s also perfect as a Terminal Server add on for SBS essentials and SBS Standard.

Sean Daniel blogged about it here .

Think of it as a turnkey remote desktop services box that has extra consoles to make it easier to manage and set up.

It can be used in any business, and multiple units can be installed to support up to 20 users per MultiPoint premium server.  The hardware that it can be on is basically overgrown desktop hardware.  Check out Livi’s post on how to get started learning about it.

 


MultiPoint server is now on Action pack

So I was doing a bit of research tonight and realized that MultiPoint Server 2011 Premium (aka the domain join version) is now out on the action pack so you can use it for internal business use.

You can download it from the Action pack site https://www.microsoft.com/msppdd/home.aspx

The significance of this is that you can now fully test it out for schools, non profits, etc.

Remember it’s also available for non profits from the www.techsoup.org web site.
