Windows Small Business Server Codename “Aurora” is part of the next generation of our award winning Windows Small Business Server, and represents a significant departure from our traditional fully on premise model. Aurora extends the ease of use of our traditional SBS products while simultaneously being a great platform for small businesses wanting to combine traditional and cloud computing.

We believe that most small businesses need a server; however not all of them know it yet. This is why we designed Aurora to be the ideal first server solution for those millions of Small Businesses worldwide who have less than 25 users and who are using a peer to peer network or have no network at all.

For these businesses, Windows Small Business Server Codename “Aurora” provides a cost-effective and easy-to-use way to simplify computing infrastructure, reduce cost and spend more time focusing on core business’ needs.

Aurora offers small businesses the help they need to ensure their data is safe through advanced backup and file restoration features. Aurora’s users can quickly set automatic, daily backups of every personal computer on the network. If problems with those files arise, small businesses can restore individual files, folders, or an entire PC or server with simple recovery tools.

In addition, Aurora gives users the power to utilize their files and documents to solve business challenges even when they’re away from the office. Using a personalized web address, Aurora’s users will also be able connect to the server from virtually anywhere and access their computers and documents from any common web browser.The preview build of this release is available on our connect site and can be downloaded now.
