Re: Network shaping/limiting/balance bandwidth software

I don’t think it’s true that you always need top of the line. Look at my company and our sister company. Both similar sizes – less than 50 users at each site. At the time when the networks went in, there was pretty much zero chance of a merge – single forest, single domain, single site. They wanted top of the line, so they bought Server 03, Exchange 03 and all related CALs. Spent a small fortune. We on the other hand bought SBS 03. Got the same out of it, spent next to nothing by comparison.

Sure, top of the line is always nice to have – there’s no denying that. But pick the right tool to do what you need – especially if you end up using something with a pricetag.
