Server 2003 R2


PLEASE NOTE: Sever 2003 R2 has currently been replaced by Server 2008 R2.  While it is possible to purchase a “Downgrade” from 2008 to 2003 C3SD, strongly recommends all business that plan to install a server, purchase and install Server 2008 R2.  We do understand that under some circumstances it is necessary to continue to run the 2003 platform.  If you have questions as to the right platform for your business please Contact Us.

The posting below was from 2003 and has been made available for reference.


Windows Server 2003 R2 is offered in 4 different versions with the Standard and Small Business Editions typically used in Small Businesses. The Standard R2 version will allow for additional hardware configurations including multiple processors (3+), RAM support up to 64GB and network patch management.

The only drawback to purchasing the Standard R2 edition is that each server application must be purchased separately. This will incur an additional expense over the Small Business Sever when requiring Exchange or SQL 2005 server.


C3 San Diego recommends Windows 2003 Small Business Server R2 because it provides your business with a multitude of essential server applications rolled into one package.

SBS 2003 has two price points, Standard and Premium, each offering Exchange/Outlook integration, an internal SharePoint website and shared file and fax services. Premium edition also includes MS SQL 2005 Server, MS ISA Server and MS FrontPage 2003. These additional technologies especially SQL Server 2005 may be of use to your company depending on the applications you utilize.

SBS allows up to 5 concurrent connections as part of its licensing. Additional 5 packs of licensees can be purchased if your company requires.

For more information, please Contact Us or visit Microsoft’s SBS website.
