ServiceLink adds round-the-clock server monitoring and reports; virus protection with automatic updates; point-and-click, IP security virtual private networks; and DNS (Domain Name System) services to SME Server V5, which is software that can convert any PC into a network server.

SME Server V5 with ServiceLink will ship this month. Pricing starts at $175 per month with a 12-month subscription.
