The 2011 edition of Windows Small Business Server combines all the best elements of past versions.

While technology news for entrepreneurs has been dominated by social media and mobile developments for the past year or so, small businesses still need to pay attention to more mundane details such as what type of server their computers use.

Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2011 may be the solution for owners looking to upgrade. The 2011 edition is built with Windows Server 2008 R2, Exchange 2010 and SharePoint Foundation 2010, but without the enterprise cost, PC World notes.

The package includes one very important upgrade - the ability to access Outlook Web App and the Remote Web Access portal using any browser, not just Internet Explorer.

"SBS 2011 is even better than the sum of the parts. Microsoft has done an impressive job of integrating the various core services into a single package, and thanks to the integrated console, the bundle is a snap to manage," the source writes.

Recently, Microsoft has been making a bigger effort to engage with small businesses. On Wednesday, Sean Thompson, the company's managing director, gave the keynote speech at a Small Business Opportunity Workshop in Missoula, Montana.
