Microsoft introduces Windows Server System promotion
Worldâ€™s largest software company is now targeting the small and medium sized businesses with a new initiative called Windows Server System promotion. It is a software-based solution for small IT staffs that require a self-contained software system. This bundle comes with Windows Server 2003 operating system, Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 application server, and Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) 2005 Workgroup Edition to manage the system.
Microsoftâ€™s offer includes 50 new combination promotional client licenses for Windows Server 2003 and Exchange Server 2003. The company is targeting startups with around 25 to 500 PCs and only a few IT people to manage the system. These companies form a large user base in the corporate sector and they lack people who can take care of the network properly with all the new security glitches being discovered on a daily basis. The new bundle will take care of those daily chores by itself.
The company has also on offer many other resources for these smaller sized companies. This includes a mid-sized business IT center Web site within Microsoft TechNet. This would be guiding IT people on how to deploy and manage Microsoft software, assessment tools to help customers with fewer than 1,000 employees gauge security vulnerabilities, and study financial analysis for ROI and ownership costs.
The company is doing all these efforts to prevent its user base from moving to alternative products for server solutions like the JBose and Linux Operating System.
