Hey, this is Dean Paron, product unit manager, back to give you more information about Windows MultiPoint Server 2011. Over the past few months, we’ve posted blogs with links to the Windows MultiPoint Server 2011 Beta and Release Candidate (which is still available for you to evaluate, by the way!) Now I’m excited to provide you first with MultiPoint Server 2011 availability information, then show you the product in action through demos and customer stories.
Windows MultiPoint Server 2011 will be available for purchase in March of this year through our volume licensing channels. Starting in the second quarter of this calendar year, it will also be available through our OEM partners. Customers who have already purchased MultiPoint Server 2010 with Software Assurance (SA) have upgrade rights to MultiPoint Server 2011 when it becomes available in March. Or if customers want to purchase MultiPoint Server today, they simply need to purchase with SA in order to have the rights to MultiPoint Server 2011 upon availability.
Now the fun stuff.
In the prior blog posts, I listed a lot of the cool new features and functionality we’re bringing onboard. For IT Pros and tech staff, our goal is to continue to make MultiPoint Server easier to set up, deploy and manage since we know how resource constrained IT staffs can be. With MultiPoint Server 2011, you now have the ability to connect more types of clients over the school’s LAN, manage multiple MultiPoint Servers from a single MultiPoint Manager UI, and more. Let me allow James Duffus, our Group Program Manager, to tell you more and show you how it works.
