Microsoft "introduces" the Windows Essential Server Solutions family

Posted by David Hunter at 4:08 PM ET.

Last week Microsoft had a faux announcement for Windows Small Business Server 2008 and Windows Essential Business Server 2008 (for midsize companies) which are now classified as part of the Windows Essential Server Solutions family. Since they run on Windows Server 2008 and in some versions require SQL Server 2008, they won’t be out until later in the year after those products ship and can be integrated.

The current bill of materials is below and you’ll notice that there actually is some new news including Windows Live OneCare for Server (which adds more stretch marks to “Windows Live” branding) and integration with Office Live Small Business.
