Looking to Replace SBS? Zynstra has the Answers!

I got a note from Harry over at SMB Nation about some friends of ours. SMB Nation is holding a special webinar with Nick East and Rhett Ryder from Zynstra (

I've been working with Zynstra for about seven months on strategies for bringing their products to the U.S. market. I'm happy to say that that effort is about to take off in a very visible way.

In the meantime . . .

SMB Nation is holding a webinar to bring Zynstra into the fold and help them spell out their product offering and how it works as a wonderful replacement for those old SBS boxes you'll be taking offline over the next several years.

I *highly* recommend that you attend this webinar.

Here's the announcement from SMB Nation:

The Next SBS - Part II

Thursday, May 15, 2014
09:00 - 10:00 AM PDT

Presented by: Harry Brelsford, Founder and Chairman, SMB Nation, Nick East, CEO, Zynstra, Rhett Ryder, VP Business Development, Zynstra

Two months ago we hosted the first "Next SBS" webinar soliciting community input. Since that time, we have been very busy.

SMB Nation has traveled over 100,000 miles around the world hosting "Get Modern" workshops in 15+ countries with top SMB IT Pros seeking additional feedback. We have looked at different business models including angel investors, the popular Kickstarter (crowdfunding platform) and other alternatives. We have talked to each major OEM along with Microsoft and Intel about our proposition.

In this webinar, we have important updates to share with you. We are forming a community cooperative to bring a server-side SBS-like solution to market in the second half of 2014. We are seeking selected top performing SMB IT Pro to join our advisory starting in in late May. We're all in this together. Get in on the ground floor with the new SMB Nation - a transactional community. It's not lost on us (and you) that the Windows server 2003 end-of-support deadline is July, 2015. And by any count - there are over two million Windows Server 2003 machines globally - of which Small Business Server 2003 makes up a significant share.

There will be plenty of opportunities for you to ask questions and contribute during this presentation. After a short update presentation, we'll open it up for community conversations. Don't miss this important webinar as we pivot the community to a SBS next generation solution.
