BPS express and sbs2008 upgrade

We are a small business that has recently upgraded from a SBS 2003 running BES express to sbs 2008. Our current configuration is one server running sbs2008 another running server 2008 standard and SQL along with antivirus and content filtering.  Is BPS express compatible with any of this configuration?  From what I read it is not.  What is my option now that we have sbs 2008?  We only have 2 blackberrys running but really need the outlook calendar sync.

So what you do is create a VM on the SBS server and install BPS on the VM.


Set up a second box for it.
