Features of SBS 2011

Affordable and easy-to-use solution – Get big-business features at a small business price, plus powerful technologies customised for small business.

Simplify IT management – One administrative console allows you to get a comprehensive look at the overall health and security of your PC’s and servers, making it easy to manage common IT tasks.

Access your business Information and resources from almost anywhere, anytime – using features like Outlook Web Access and the provided remote access facilities, SBS 2011 makes it even easier to work from any location, at any time.

Increase business capacity via the cloud – The newly released SBS 2011 Essentials Edition now features Integration with Microsoft Business Productivity Online (BPOS) services, providing a stable server for in-house file-sharing, remote access and storage, whilst providing the best the cloud has to offer.

Run line-of-business applications – Any application supporting installation on a Windows Server 2008 R2 should work on a Small Business Server 2011, subject to sufficient resources. Additionally, the SBS 2011 Premium Add-On provides an additional server license, as well as SQL Small Business Edition, to support additional products or line of business applications.

Simplified disk-to-disk backup for business data – SBS 2011 simplifies backup management, providing a single interface to dedicated back-up drives, allowing full management of  backups of both the server and workstations. SBS 2011 now backs up both PCs on a daily basis, allowing for quick restore to minimise disruption in the event of a failure.

Full Client backup – Performs daily, automatic backup of every computer on the network. After the first backup has run, each subsequent event only backs up the changes, minimizing backup time.
