Will there be a Windows Server Next Essentials Version? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to plan our IT budget for the coming year and those of my clients.  I have already prepared that there will be a new version of Exchange to install and manage, but I cannot seem to find any information as to whether or not there will be a Windows Server Next Essentials Version available.

    Any Help would be greatly appreciated (pricing would be WONDERFUL)

  • Hi Bob:

    Nothing is known at this time and nothing will be known until Microsoft makes it known.  I think if I were in your position I would plan on Server because, and this is a biggie:   If you are going to have Exchange you will need two servers and Server gives you that for the cost of one license.  Or at least it does now.  As I just said, nothing is known until MS makes it known.  <g>.
