Windows Server 2008 Discussion with BCIU Kevin Sullivan Management TSP US Education Kevin.email@example.com 1 Virtualization Web Internet Information Services 7.0 – Powerful Web Application and Services Platform Manage with Ease - More efficient administration tools including delegated administration and shared configuration Powerful Hosting of Applications and Services Expanded application hosting for .NET, ASP, PHP Web applications and XML services. Web server extensibility throughout Lower Infrastructure Costs - Improved scalability and enhanced security and reliability with automatic application sandboxing Windows Server Virtualization – WS2008 contains everything needed to support machine virtualization. Hyper-V™ enables IT organizations to reduce costs, improve server utilization, and create a more dynamic IT infrastructure. Presentation Virtualization - Terminal Services accelerates and extends application deployments to any device, improving remote worker efficiency, while helping keep critical intellectual property secure and radically simplifying regulatory compliance Security Network Access Protection - helps prevent unhealthy devices from accessing corporate resources, NAP enables policy validation, network restriction, remediation and ongoing compliance to ensure network health is not compromised. Read-Only Domain Controller (RODC) - helps reduce corruption and compromise of the system. RODC improves security of branch office servers and reduces risk of stolen information from branch DCs. Active Directory Rights Management Services helps prevent unauthorized access and use of documents, data, and e-mail. RMS enables document owners to identify authorized users and manage restrictions on usage of documents. Solid Foundation for Your Business Workloads Management Reliability Server Manager – “One-stop shop” to guide you through installation, configuration, management, and reporting of server roles and features. Server Core Installation Option - Minimal installation option for increased reliability, security, and management Windows PowerShell™ - Achieve greater control and productivity using a powerful new command shell and scripting language for accelerated system administration and task automation Next Generation Networking - New TCP/IP stack improves scalability, performance and security. Power Management – Reduce energy consumption and maintain server performance through processor power management features. Failover Clustering – Improved setup, validation, management, and geo-clustering deployment simplifies implementation of highly-available failover clusters and helps ensure business continuity. High Performance Computing – Increase scalability and performance of HPC workloads and improve management of clustered file systems. Dynamic Partitioning - Datacenter and Itanium. Delivers mainframeclass reliability. Increases workload resources, and allows one to hotadd and replace processors and memory without rebooting, Virtualization Web Management Hyper-V with Live Migration Power Management IIS 7.5 Hot
