Small Business Server 2000

Microsofts SBS 2000 gold software bundle is a bargain compared with the cost of purchasing the included components separately. The package is ideal for smaller startups and other companies just getting computerized. However, getting a handle on SBS 2000s cumbersome management could be too expensive for some shops.

SHORT-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // The integrated setup gets a small or midsize network up and running quickly and easily.

LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // The package provides room to grow, offering the right tools for a network to scale up to 50 clients.

Quick and easy setup; ISA Server provides strong security; puts less stress on network servers than rival packages.

Priced higher than competitors; maintenance demands could be too costly for small sites.
