Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The difference is essentially licensing for different versions of the same functionality.

People can specify technical differences, but it boils down to licensing fees for versions with larger capacity, etc.

    Hello, Essentially the core functions between Standard edition and Enterprise editions are the same. Enterprise, as was stated in another post, provides support for increased processor and RAM resources amongst others, which are necessary to support large number of users, usaully greater than 100. For a small to medium network on a budget Standard edition is fine. If your shopping for a small network, Small Business server can be a good choice as well as it includes a version of Exchange. Good Luck!

    just remember though with small Buisness server you can not add any other servers to the domain,and the amount of user accounts, so growth and expansion is very limited. also there is some new licesning from MS enterprise edition with the Virtual server and items like VM ware that is very benificial to someone going this route.

    I must make a correction here. That is not a correct statement regarding small business server and adding other servers, this is a faulse hood that just will not die. With Windows Small Business Server 2003, one or more additional servers can be added to your network. Additional servers can run client or server applications or can be used to enable a Terminal Server connection. The SBS must hold all 5 FSMO roles and be the top DC, it cannot generate trust relationships and other restrictions. It limits at 75 concurrent connections, but is flexable in the licensing. In other words you could have 900 users and 50 computer, it a matter of how you use up your limit of 75 CALs, per user - per device. It is not for large enterprises, but works very well for many organizations of various sizes. The problem is, there are way too many people who do not understand the SBS and say things that are not correct and it just keeps getting repeated over and over. Check with a Microsoft Small Business Specialist for more information.
