The datasheet available for Anywhere hardware requirements indicates this product isn't for the small shop:

1 Collaboration server (running Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise 64-bit)
3 Mercury Streaming Engines (Servers also running Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise 64-bit)
At least 8 10GbE ports.
(None of which jives with the video here: - ...throw a server together, anywhere you have a network point....)

Using the datasheet, the foundational server/software costs alone could be $15K-$20K minimum, but perhaps you could build your own server and run something else, though I continue to wonder why Adobe doesn't pay more attention to enterprise Linux for back-end duties.

Hopefully they have something up their sleeve for smaller outfits and/or groups of local editors who don't have a data-center with 4 servers to spare... ;)

While I can't help but think they've designed the product so that smaller outfits need to turn to their "Cloud" (I'm a broken record I know), it looks nice for large organizations.
