Learning about EBS and SBS - the New Versions

We continue to move closer to the coming release of Windows EBS (Essential Business Server) - the new release targeting the midmarket customer base from 50-300 users. Part of the misconception about EBS has been the fact that Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG formerly ISA) is required as part of the solution and it seems many partners are afraid of this being in the product. One of the industry's foremost experts on ISA, Tom Shinder, wrote a great article on this on his blog. You need to take time to read his post on ISAServer.org at this link:

Also there is new training available at Partner Academy on the pending SBS and EBS products. Check out this link to prepare for these new versions and be ready with some tech readiness: https://training.partner.microsoft.com/plc/search_adv.aspx?ssid=2ff59e1b-42b9-4802-afc1-a02fb3d5eca3.

There are two 8 part courses on each product that cover these topics:
· Planning, Design, & Installation
· Migration
· Management, Health, & Reporting
· Messaging & Remote Access
· Security & Backup
· LOB Support, Extensibility, & Troubleshooting
· Virtualization
