Windows Small Business Server 2011 is the Microsoft operating system in the SBS line based on Windows Server 2008 R2. It will be the last in the SBS line and went RTM December 13th, 2010 and was first officially released March 9th, 2011. Like the rest of the SBS line, it includes a number of Microsoft products bundled with it, the tradeoff being that the number of users is limited and some functionality useful for larger organizations is disabled.
