How we tested Microsoft SBS 2008

Microsoft provided SBS 2008 Standard per-installed on a Dell PowerEdge T605 server with a 2.0 GHz Quad-Core AMD Opteron processor, 8GB RAM, and 1TB of disk storage using RAID-5 for file protection. We installed client software via the network connection and by copying installation files to a USB drive. Firefox worked as well as Internet Explorer on all server tests after initial client browser-based download and installation.
