Why not drop about $150K on a small SAN and Windows Data Center, then you'll need AV, so you should get Trend Micro Office scan and license it for 100000 clients... sound like a plan? :shifty: :laugh:

Seeing as Windows Home server 2011 was only about $40 for OEM and Eset NOD runs fine on it :D :shifty:

Evals, Trials and Technet/Spark style software is not what this person needs... Seriously you guys, Windows 7 will already do whatever we wants and you are telling him to use software that costs 100's of dollars for a setup he doesn't need to pay extra to do.


It was for the benefit of anyone that is using Server 2012 believing that they are protected and the full AV product is included within the eval package but it's not easy to obtain legitimately on its own unless you are TechNet/SA.
