Windows Server "Centro" is officially unveiled and has a new name!!

Hey Everyone,

We have a new name! Please pass the word out if you can. I really appreciate all of your support over the last year getting the word out via your blogs. We have had a huge level of interest in the Techbeta and we are currently evaluating expanding the level of participants in the program in the near future. So, if you are interested, see the instructions below for applying to participate in the TechBeta.

Windows® Essential Business Server is the new Microsoft server solution for small to medium businesses, with 50 to 250 client computers in their organizations. Windows®Essential Business Server offers a standardized server configuration that is designed to meet the needs of most midsize businesses. The configuration is optimized to meet the currently recommended practices for networking, security, collaboration, and remote access. The tightly integrated Windows Essential Business Server simplifies setup, migration, and licensing for Microsoft infrastructure server products that a midsize business uses most frequently. Most network services and resources are managed through a single Windows®Essential Business Server Administration Console, which is accessible from anywhere on the network or remotely over a virtual private network.

Windows®Essential Business Server is installed on three physical servers. These are referred to by their primary roles in the network:
    Windows®Essential Business Server Management Server – Centralizes management of your Windows Server "Centro" network. Enables and manages worker collaboration and network services.

    Windows®Essential Business Server Security Server – Manages security, Internet access, and remote-worker connectivity.

    Windows®Essential Business Server Messaging Server – Provides messaging capabilities and manages network services.
If you are interested in joining the Windows®Essential Business Server upcoming Beta 2 effort;

    1. Please go to http://connect.microsoft.com,

    2. Click on Invitations and sign in with your Windows Live ID (Passport ID).

    3. Enter the following invite ID: EBSE-VKDP-276Y.

    4. You will be asked to take a short survey.

    5. Once you complete the survey we will evaluate your application for articipation in the Techbeta.

    6. Then look for an email from MsftConn@microsoft.com with further details.

Thanks again,

Kevin Beares

"Centro" was only the Codename for the Beta 1. This release will be the Beta 2.

Hmm, bit of a strange choice of name, as it doesn't really give an indication what size of business it's aimed at or where it fits in with relation to SBS eg if it's smaller or bigger than SBS. I actually thought Centro was quite a good name, though it was only a codename, as it does suggest to me that it's for medium-sized organisations, which is who Centro is aimed at (ie the next step up from SBS).

If you've been on Centro since Beta1/CTP you're already in, also the program name has been renamed automatically.
