Get more involved with the launch of EBS at the Windows Essential Server Solutions Virtual Tradeshow that includes both Webcasts and Exhibits

In conjunction with The Dream Server virtual launch on November 12th, Microsoft and its partners are sponsoring a virtual tradeshow that includes both webcasts and exhibits.  Please register here early and help promote this broadly!


On November 12th, Microsoft and its premier partners are launching Windows Essential Server Solutions, a new family of integrated server solutions that address the unique needs of small and midsize businesses (SMBs). During times of stationary or shrinking budgets and economic uncertainty, minimizing the redundancies and optimizing parts in your IT infrastructure can help control costs and raise productivity. With the unique challenges firms face upgrading and maintaining their IT infrastructure, smart organizations are re-evaluating their plans and expenditures and investing wisely.

This one-day event is the official launch for Windows Essential Server Solutions, which includes Windows Small Business Server 2008 and Windows Essential Business Server 2008. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and other Microsoft executives will introduce these new products and will be joined by Mark Minasi, an independent expert and best-selling author.

Mr. Minasi, along with Microsoft executives and partners, will review the new features, functions and strategies which will help you get the most value from your existing and future technology investments. Major announcements, plus the ability to interact with Microsoft and its partners, make this a must-attend event for SMB technology and business managers as well as IT consultants and partners.

  2. Neil,

       Great questions!  The live webcast is shown via and the Virtual Tradeshow via TechTarget, so you can view everything through the Virtual Tradeshow.  I suggest still going to the to register to win a free server solution (SBS or EBS).  

       We are not expecting bandwidth issues, even with so many customers and partners anxiously awaiting the RTM bits.  We are excited to see how many eval downloads occur tomorrow.

    If the dream server event is 7:30am-4:30pm Pacific Time, then at what time will we have free to watch the partner virtual tradeshow content?

    Is this integrated in with the “The dream server” or is in parallel?

    Another question, or really more of a concern, is bandwidth of the EBS and SBS code downloads while the virtual events are occurring. Based on the small sampling of traffic both on the private and public newsgroups there seems to be many people who are waiting until the 12th to be able to get the code.

    Is the internal expectation that interested users will put off downloading the bits in order to watch the launch content?
