Migrating from ORF Fusion for SBS to ORF Fusion

Article was last updated on July 24, 2018. View products that this article applies to.

In July of 2012, Microsoft announced the discontinuation of the Windows Small Business Server (SBS) line of products. The successor, Windows Server 2012 Essentials does not include Microsoft Exchange. To keep your on-premises Exchange deployment, you can migrate to Windows Server, however.

Vamsoft supports this migration by enabling you to purchase ORF Fusion with 50% discount. This means you can get a Windows Server-compliant version of ORF for about the same or even less than your ORF Fusion for SBS license renewal would have costed for you (125 USD).

This offer is available for migrating from ORF Fusion for SBS to ORF Fusion only. Due to this, you are required to have an ORF Fusion for SBS license registered. Note that you are eligible even if your Fusion for SBS Software Maintenance Agreement (SMA) has already expired. The offer is also available via ORF partners.

Please follow the steps below to take advantage of this offer:

  1. Request your product edition migration in writing or by phone through our Customer Service. Providing us with your 6-digit Company Account ID can help us to quickly identify your license account. Once the request is received, our team will prepare your account for receiving another product edition and will provide you with a personalized order link with your 50% discount pre-applied.
  2. Place the order using your personalized order link received in the previous step.
