        Does your small business face any of these issues?
        • Your business applications require dedicated servers, but you only have one server.
        • Your business applications are incompatible with the current version of Windows Small Business Server 2003 (Windows SBS).
        • You want to provide Terminal Services capabilities without compromising security.
        With Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2 running on Windows SBS, you can solve all of these issues, without costly hardware expenditures. Use Virtual Server to create virtual machines, which run on the same physical server as Windows SBS. Then, run your Windows applications on the virtual machines—including legacy applications or applications that require a dedicated server—in their native Windows environments (including Windows NT). Applications and services run on the virtual machine just as they do on physical servers, with few limitations. Download this document to learn how to install Virtual Server on Windows SBS.
