HTG's Sorensen: Consider MultiPoint Server for SMBs

Windows MultiPoint Server 2011, which Microsoft is in the final stages of making available through its many delivery channels, is intended as a shared computing solution for libraries, labs and classrooms. But Heartland Technology Groups founder Arlin Sorensen argued in a post on his Peer Power blog Tuesday morning that MultiPoint deserves serious consideration from VARs as an SMB solution.

"This product has been revved from the previous version and I think has a great application for those of us serving small businesses," Sorensen wrote.

Arlin is looking at MultiPoint as a way to provide Terminal Services to small-business customers at an affordable price that extends the lives of their aging workstations: "It is essentially a turnkey TS server on steroids."
