Migrating away from Windows Home Server v1

I’ve been an avid support of Window Home Server since the first day I heard about it, and have supported v1 for a very long time. But it’s finally time to move on. Thanks to a friend, I’ve had a chance to play with a few different options out there in virtual machines, and I’ve found the solution for me. That’s Small Business Server 2011 Essentials.  I’ll go over the change and what I’m liking in it, but first I’m going to go over the options I didn’t choose.
