The product is still months away, but Microsoft is sharing a few more details on its forthcoming custom software package for midsize business servers.
Microsoft first announced its plans for Centro back in September 2005, saying at the time it would be based on the Longhorn version of Windows Server as well as the latest version of Exchange, then known by its Exchange 12 code name. The product will also contain additional security and management tools, Microsoft said this week, and will be aimed specifically at businesses with between 50 and 250 PCs.
As is often the case, it is dropping its memorable code-name for a larger mouthful. In this case "Centro" is becoming Windows Essential Business Server.
