    Hey Guys
    I'm thinking about signing-up for a VPS account.
    During checkout most Hosts offer different versions of Win Server 2008, which one is best if the VPS will be used mainly for SB, AMR etc...

    Windows Server 2008 WEB
    Windows Server 2008 Standard
    Windows Server 2008 Enterprise

    :confused:
    Thanks

    Windows Server 2008 Standard works good for me :)

    I think the difference between web and stantard is that web has 2gb memory limit and does not have possibility to host websites. So if you have vps with less than 2gb memory and don't plan host any sites the web should do. But why not take "better" version if it doesn't cost more

    I would recommend you to go for "Windows Server 2008 Enterprise". Actually, the difference among editions are in the numbers of processors, amount of RAM, and high availability features supported, so it is up to you what exactly you want...... ​
