2008r2sp1 is supported as OS for EV11.

UPgrade - path is identical as from 9 to 10, with 1 major improvement:

when upgrading the databases, you used to start the Directory service, then the storage service. There now is an exe file called EVDatabaseUPgrader. This upgrades all databases (except monitoring) in 1 go. Cool!

Good thing is that for a user nothing changes UNTIL you enable the new search. Your users will love that, as they will the possibility to use the search on Ios, Windows phone and Android.

Test it, and be surprised!
