After two years of announcing our intent to build a medium business solution, the Windows Server Solutions Team today announced the new integrated server solution designed for midsize businesses – "Windows Essential Business Server" - previously known as Windows Server code name “Centro”.

I think that the name might take me a while to get used to..... However how do you get your first peek?

Well between November 12 – 16 we will talk about this product at TechED ITForum in Barcelona. We will also showcase Windows Essential Business Server alongside our hardware partners, providing joint demos with these early adopter partners who have designed hardware specifically for the midmarket segment.  Also there will be a variety of ISVs presenting their implementations upon the Windows Essential Business Server extensibility platform.  In addition to the sessions, we will host an “Ask the Experts Booth” in the pavilion, alongside Windows Home Server.
