Aurora Preview Available

As well as the new refresh of the Public Preview of Vail Microsoft has also announced a preview of Windows Small Business Server codename Aurora.

Aurora is based on Windows Server 2008 R2, the same platform as Vail but is designed for the small business owner. Allowing up to 25 users instead of Vail’s 10 limit plus Active Directory support it is an ideal product for the small business or home office. But its no good thinking Aurora as a premium version of Vail because rightly so it doesn’t include media streaming or Media Center integration.

Would you like to try it? Then you can try a copy from Microsoft’s Connect website.

Also available to read online are the Windows Server Code Name "Aurora" Preview Release Notes.

    Potentially perfect for small non-profit companies. I hope someone will explain the reasoning behind “7” not backing up client computers.
