  • Hello Sbu,

    Windows Small Business Server (SBS) is limited to 75 users and it is not able to create a trust.

    You can find some of the differences in the link below:

  • there is no SBS 2008 R2, I think you want to know what's the difference between SBS 2011(essentials or standard) and server 2008 r2 .
    Windows Small Business Server 2011 essentail version supports up to 25 users and 50 devices .
    Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard version is designed for use with up to 75 users and devices.
    Windows Small Business Server 2011 need to have full fsmo ,it used in single domain environemt and not support 2 way trust.There are no these limitation on server 2008 r2.
    SBS 2011 is based on Server 2008 R2 and Exchange 2010
    SBS 2008 is based on Server 2008 and Exchange 2007

    Getting Started with Windows Small Business Server 2011

  • One thing the all have in common is they are all on extended support and set to EOL in about 10-11 months.  If you are searching for a new server OS, I cannot recommend any of these.  Better Server 2016, either Standard or Essentials, or the latest, Server 2019 which has no Essentials features, but does have an Essentials Version at a lower price point because of limits on the number of  users.
