Microsoft has introduced a new Windows Server system promotion designed to help mid-size businesses deploy and maintain more-secure and well-managed infrastructures.
The system comprises of Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition; Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Standard Edition; and Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) 2005 Workgroup Edition.
Microsoft said the package would give mid-size companies an easy-to-deploy product with simplified infrastructure management, reduced costs and complexity, and improved security.
The offering, which also includes 50 new combinations of promotional client access licenses (CALs) for Windows Server 2003 and Exchange Server 2003, also eases budget planning by providing predictable licensing.
Microsoft views mid-size businesses as those operating 25 to 500 PCs. The new package will be available in August 2005 and Microsoft says the promotion is equivalent to 20% off individual open license program prices.
