  • Shared hosted SBS 2008 server

    I would like to rent one server out to multiple companies ranging in 1 - 10 worplaces with a maximum of 50 users per server. I use a hosted Exchange topic but maybe there are some simpler ways of sharing a SBS 2008 server.

    Any help appriciated!

    Perhaps a fuller explanation of what you want will help. If you are wanting to put multiple Domains on an SBS server it ain't going to work.
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.

    2 2 1 1 2

      would like to rent 1 fully redundant server with enough cpu, memory and storage to multiple companies. For instance:

      Company1 - 2 users
      Company2 - 1 user
      Company3 - 5 users
      Company4 - 8 users
      Company5 - 1 user
      Company6 - 1 user

      They login with VPN to this server with one domainname for instance hossbs01.siem-it.nl.

      The internal domainname is sbs01.

      The two users from company1 get their own share (that's the easy part), their own e-mail (also easy), their own company's address list, offline address book etc (that's harder), their own portal on sharepoint (also a little harder) and other features. FAX option is not given.
      The other company's get the same as company1 but they should not know of the other company's on this server.

      It's like hosted Exchange, but then the complete SBS features.

        I would be very interested in seeing if the Microsoft EULA allows this sort of usage

            Using SBS???? That I doubt and I seriously doubt that you can physically do it with SBS. Too many Wizard handled settings to allow the required nitty gritty multiple configurations that you want.

              I like a challange. So far the hosted Exchange topic is helping a lot. But when others have already done it, it's easier.

              It's easy to host multiple SBS servers in Hyper-v, but you can only get 4-5 SBS servers on a heavy server and you need to charge a minumum of 5 users per server. With a shared solution, i can get more users on one server.

              Company's with 10 or more users are better of wiht a local server or a dedicated server.
