I have a Windows SBS 2003 R2 site and I am about to swap out the hardware.
The site uses the Exchange and Sharepoint features of SBS and home directories
There are about 20 active users and it is unlikely to grow although they do have a high turnover of staff so adding and deleting users is a regular task. I am convinced that the future for email is the cloud and possibly Sharepoint hosting however they have not got the bandwidth in their location yet and the costs per hosted exchange and sharepoint are still prohibitive.
I was intending to do a fresh install of SBS2003, however this is now out of support and I am concerned that it won’t be supported from a hardware compatibility perspective.
My question therefore is , what version of SBS should I upgrade to ?
I have this criteria
It must be as easy to mange as SBS2003
Users may migrate to the cloud in 2-3 years
I will use the Swing Migration utility to migrate
