After more than five years of development effort, Microsoft has produced a server OS that offers both performance gains and greater flexibility compared to Windows Server 2003. Although, it’s been a long time coming, it’s crammed with important new features and enhancements.
Advanced security is a key strength that will change the future for viruses. New virtualisation technologies, web resources and improved security, help save time, reduce costs and provide a platform for a dynamic and optimised datacentre.
Powerful new tools like Internet information Services (IIS) 7 and Server Manager provide more control over servers and streamline Web, configuration, and management tasks.
Some compare WS08 to the likes of Linux rather than its predecessor; however the advances are the result of Microsoft listening carefully to its customers and delivering an operating system that Windows shops want.
To see a case study from a business that has implemented WS08 and already seen a huge increase in the reliability of their security as well as dramatic savings in time and money, visit www.zeroviruses.org.nz.
