SBS2011 or Server 2008 next step…

Those you you have SBS2011 or Server 2008 or 2008r2, you know that the end of life is coming…which I believe is in 2020. You may have also hear that SBS2011 is the final version for Small Business Server. So, if you are a firm currently using SBS, what’s your next options. You can go to Server standard 2016 for your dc, Server 2016 standard for your exchange with exchange 2019. Yes, this can get costly for most small business. For some small business, the cloud is the way to go for exchange. However I’ve also seen it more cost effective to have it on site, especially when you use exchange for other things, such as lots of SMTP outgoing from printers or your database, or you simply have lots of users. Can you imagine switching everything to the cloud, the the following year, your email provider want to charge you $25.00 per month per users and you have close to 100 users? Yes, that can get expensive.
