On August 1st, 2012, ENCLUDE  also discontinued all Microsoft Small Business Server products from its catalog, except for Small Business Server Essentials 2011.

Essentials Features

Small Business Server Essentials 2011 is still available to request from ENCLUDe. It includes all of the basic features of Small Business Server products, such as file recovery, automatic backups, cloud-based service connectivity, Remote Web Access, and data storage. For more information, see a list of all features.

Software Assurance

If your Small Business Server Standard Edition Software Assurance benefits are still active, your rights will be carried over to Windows Server 2012 Server Standard Edition and Exchange Server 2010 Standard Edition. In other words, you'll be able to get Windows Server 2012 once it's released by Microsoft.

If you have Software Assurance on Small Business Server 2011 Premium Add-on, your rights will be carried over to Windows Server 2012 Standard Edition, Exchange Server 2010 Standard Edition, and SQL Server 2012 Standard Edition.

If you have active Software Assurance on this product... ...you will be able to upgrade to these product licenses as they become available.
