End of the road for Essential Business Server

Microsoft’s mid-market server bundle, EBS aka Essential Business Server, is being discontinued, with no further development as of June 30. EBS started shipped in 2008, and was aimed at organizations in the 250 to 300 desktop range. The bundle included a range of Microsoft server products, including Windows Server 2008, Exchange Server 2007, Forefront Security, and ISA Server. The discontinuation was announced on the EBS blog. This will not have any impact on SBS.
