Windows Server 2008 Set To Deliver Web-based Experiences

Aug 24, 2008
Known as 'Longhorn' until its official release by Bill Gates at the WinHEC conference in May 2007, Windows 2008 is almost here, with full release scheduled in February 2008. For increased control of your servers, efficient management, and configured Web tasks, there's Windows PowerShell, Windows Server Manager and IIS7. eNetwork Access Protection and Read-Only Domain Controller protect and fortify the server environment, putting your business on a strong foundation. So, what exactly does this mean for your business in terms of new features? Some highlights include:

This Server is Built for the Web

Internet Info Services 7 simplifies management of Web services. As a modular platform with an interface based on tasks, better control, improved security, and Web service health management, the user connects to their information and to others using Info Server (IIS) 7.0 and .NET 3.0. Visualization, sharing and acting upon the information are all possible with this inclusive apps platform.

Efficient Licensing with Virtualization

One is able to virtualize multiple operating systems to one server to max out the value, and virtual capabilities are bundled with the operating system for more flexible licensing. Sever 2008 facilitates creating dynamic data centers to meet business needs. Optimized for remote access and integrated apps, Terminal Services' Gateway and RemoteApp apply secure app deployment and do not require a VPN (Virtual Private Network).

Enhanced Security and Control

Sever 2008 does a great job creating a hard operating system with great security features including network access protection, rights management, and read-only domain control. Levels of security which were previously not possible are now available for your business network data, including data failure, network intrusion, and secure user accounts.

Machines that disobey the company's security policies are isolated by Network Access Protection, which completes ongoing maintenance including checks of compliance and remediation. Sensitive information is persistently protected by Federated Rights Management Services to lower the risk and make compliance possible in a total info protection system. Read-Only Domain Controller deploys Active Directory Domain Services while disallowing copying of the entire data base for better defense against data compromise or info theft.

Creating A Solid Base for Your Business Workloads

Windows Server 2008, the most robust and flexible OS available, comes with Server Core, Windows Deployment Services, PowerShell, and better clustering technology, providing the best reliability and flexibility for your needs. Faster setup and configuration is possible, as well as easy ongoing management with a unified management console.

WSRM resource manager is integrated into Windows Server 2008. This provides is able to be used to determine the amount of server resources that an individual process or user are able to utilize depending on the priorities of the company. Resource limits are enforced with matched process criteria, including time on the central processing unit, the maximum amount of bandwitdh able to be employed, and the amount of processors it can run on. These specified restrictions can be date-sensitive, changing at different times in the schedule.

PowerShell, a command-line shell with over one hundred tools, uses a script language that lets sysadmins make routine tasks fully automated across servers. The new installation option Server Core has only the required components to provide good server availability with less service updates - without using a graphical user interface. You may want to consider implementing the Windows 2008 Server with your business existing business goals.
