SBS 2008 and SPLA

We have not been pushing too hard to get things rolling in our SPLA program with an SBS focus as of yet.

The primary reason is that SBS 2008 will actually fit a lot better into a multiple user/company hosting setup.

The reasons:
  1. Remote Web Workplace has the ability to setup the resource links on a per user basis.
  2. SharePoint can be configured with a subsite that is linked in RWW for a given user only. This gives exclusivity to the sub site to specific users or groups of users.
  3. Terminal Services Applications (formerly SoftGrid) can be published to the RWW site via a link.
  4. Users can be assigned a specific desktop for RDC only ... so no more full list of computers.
Enrolled in the SBS 2008 beta yet?

If not, we suggest heading into it soon as it will have a direct impact on your SMB/SBS SPLA business.
