Since we are getting several questions around this topic, I thought it would be a good idea to dedicate a blog post to it.
In Microsoft CRM 3.0, there are currently two versions:
- Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Small Business Edition
- Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Professional
With Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0, the following versions will be available:
Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Workgroup Edition This version is limited to 5 or fewer users. It can be installed on Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2 Enterprise Edition, any of the supported Windows Server 2003 editions, or Microsoft Windows Server 2008. This version is limited to a single organization and a single computer that is running Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Server.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Professional Edition This version has no user limit and is limited to a single organization. Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Professional Edition Server can, however, be installed to more than one computer.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Enterprise Edition This version has no user limit. Additional features include support for multiple organizations, multiple server instances, and role-based service installation. Rolebased services let you increase performance by installing component services on different computers.
