Windows Server 2008 R2 Foundation is an ideal first server and can be deployed easily to create a single-server network. Windows Server Foundation can be deployed in a variety of ways to meet your needs.
Windows Server Foundation is an excellent option for use with single or multiple workloads, such as file sharing, print sharing, networking, Remote Desktop Services, remote connections, and other common server roles. Also, Windows Server Foundation can be used for Internet Web services and as a Web server platform for intranets and extranets where user authentication is required.
Windows Server Foundation can be used as an Active Directory server or domain controller, and can also join a domain as a member server or domain controller (but the 15 user limit still applies across Active Directory scenarios)
Terminal Services (Remote Desktop)
Windows Server Foundation is also ideal for multiple-user computing, such as sharing Microsoft Office or using Remote Desktop Services.
