Customers are a little closer to having a shiny new CD with Windows Server 2003 R2 in their hands.

Microsoft released its updated server software to manufacturing Tuesday, six months after public beta tests began on the updated technology.

A public beta of the software was released in May showing off the new additions to the software and giving customers a chance to see what’s been improved.

The full product update comes in Standard, Enterprise and Datacenter editions in both 32- and 64-bit versions. A fourth edition, Server 2003 R2 Web, is solely devoted to Web-based applications, pages and Web services.

The small- to medium-sized business (SMB) version of the software, Small Business Server 2003 R2, is expected in the second quarter of 2006.

Windows Storage Server 2003 R2 was also released to manufacturing today.
