Are you ready for SBS 2008 Part 3

I was sitting here thinking there is so many variables when you go to a customer site that has to be covered anymore with the offerings of Windows 2008 and all what it offers and SBS 2008 and even EBS that a person really needs some kind of checklist flow chart that would take the Sales person to the right conclusion for the right server OS to propose to the customer. Then that also would need input from the techs that takes care of that customer as he will be more aware of what is really happening onsite and the needs or it might be a call with both Account Manager and Tech. But here is some I have come up with in my mind anyway. This list could be every expanding but you get the idea some many options so little time.

1. Customer wants file/print services and remote access to workstations and no email

a. Server 2008 using TS Gateway

2. Customer wants file/print, Sharepoint and remote access to workstations and no email

a. Solution Server 2008

3. Customer wants file/print and Email hosted on their server.

a. Solution SBS 2008 Standard
b. Unless Customer is over the 75 limit then you have EBS or a Standalone 2008 Server with Exchange 2007 SP1

4. Customer wants file/print, Email, Sharepoint, and RWW

a. Solution SBS 2008 Standard

5. Customer wants Hyper-V and Email and Sharepoint and RWW and a Terminal Server

a. Solution SBS 2008 Premium
b. Could run all on one server dependent upon user amounts and other factors.

6. Customer has more than 75 Users and wants Email and Sharepoint and Exchange and SQL

a. EBS 2008 or 2008 Server with Exchange and separate server for SQL or Run these on HyperV

As you can see many different options I will add to this as I think of more possibilities.
