I’m prevented from talking publicly about the next version of Microsoft Server products, but now that Microsoft have announced the public beta of Windows Home Server aka Vail, I can at least talk about it 🙂
I would HIGHLY recommend that ALL SMB IT Professionals look closely at the Vail beta. Why? Well think about the move to the cloud for many clients and about how Vail might well fit into the smaller client environments, allowing them central control over their files, backups of machines and so on. Vail is something Microsoft have been working on for some time and I can see how we might use this technology in our current client environments. Sure it does not have Active Directory, but honestly – when did you last use Group Policy to do anything meaningful in a 10 workstation network?
Get onto the beta TODAY here
