1.) Huge cost savings over a piece meal approach.
Windows SBS 2008 is designed and priced for small businesses.

One product, one price, and one Client Access License (CAL) simplify license management with Windows SBS 2011. Additionally, the flexibility to mix Standard and Premium CALs as well as discounted upgrades and migrations as your needs grow make Windows SBS 2011 licensing more cost-effective.
