Eventhough, the above ad is for IBM e-servers, it can very well suit Lotus Foundations as well. Let me explain my reasoning, where else can you find an intelligent server operating system that can configure itself with just few clicks? Name one server appliance that can get your network back up within 2 mins after a crash. How about setting up the network and not worrying about it afterwards? No Patch Tuesdays here. How about actually working properly without any additional patches in Windows, Mac and Linux environments. With the new MacBooks out, I am even tempted to grab one and be part of the sexy computing movement (or not. lol).
and yes, we don’t require you to buy 2 servers to do the same job. (*hint* Microsoft Small Business Server 2008 requires a dedicated SQL server). It’s suppose to be a small business, not a data center. I can’t afford to hire a engineer to take care of my network 24/7. That’s servers job, not mine. Welcome to the refreshing change in the small business market.
