The "family" of SBS
Dean Paron is on stage talking about the SBS team in Redmond is under the Windows Server Solutions Group and how the "family" of products are really cousins of one another. The Group has three teams under it, Home Server, Centro as well as SBS. As such, technologies in one platform complement other technologies on the other platforms.
For example the RWW in SBS was "borrowed" by Windows Home Server.
Bodhi is talking about how Cougar's backup is built on the Longhorn backup and is a VSS block level backup. Longhorn's backup will only support hard drives as a backup medium, however third party backup software for Longhorn will still support tape drives.
The snap shot technologies of Longhorn are such that while the first backup may take longer but after that it's very very fast.
