    still have single point of failure

    SBS 2003 is the fourth version of SBS. So in the expected Microsoft pattern, it has numerous refinements over previous versions. For one thing, Hassell describes it as far less likely to crash, or have circumstances which require a reboot. While these two conditions are not the same to an experienced sysadmin, to many users there is no difference. In itself, this enhanced uptime is beneficial in the typical environment in which SBS is run. Namely a small corporate net where there are only a few machines, on which everyone depends for several services. But, as Hassell points out, SBS 2003 still centralises applications on one machine. And these include those accessible from the Internet. Single point of failure. Still, the economic realities of a small company may mean that it cannot easily splurge for extra hardware. You might still wonder, upon reading this book. With all the nice improvements in the applications covered under the SBS umbrella, perhaps it would have been better for Microsoft to not have implemented some of these. Instead, it might have lowered the SBS price more and changed the functionality to let it run across 2 machines. Far more robust.
