Small Business Server 2011 will cost over $1,000, even before client-access licenses are added on to that number.

Other products in the world of Windows Server are snaking their way to the market, most notably Windows Home Server 2011, which according to our coverage yesterday is merely inches from completion.

Small Business Server 2011 will support 75 users, and contains versions of Exchange, WSUS, and SharePoint. A smaller version, Small Business Server Essentials, will also eventually make it to market, supporting just 25 users. It is expected to hit RTM soon, perhaps even in the current month.
