Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

Have you heard? Windows 8 release is looming, and yet I haven’t really had a chance to figure out what all Server 2008 can do. Microsoft is building this with Cloud Computing in mind. They are really pushing their virtualization platform, or shall i say shoving it our faces, by including Hyper V with pretty much all releases, even in their future desktop release Windows 8.

Windows Server 8 offers you excellent economics by integrating a highly available and easy-to-manage multiserver platform. Windows Server 8 helps IT professionals cloud-enable their infrastructure while satisfying business needs faster and more efficiently by providing a highly available, easy-to-manage multiserver platform with the following benefits:
Continuous availability: New and improved features offer cost-effective, high IT service uptime. They are designed to endure failures without disrupting services to users.
Management efficiency: Windows Server 8 helps automate an even broader set of management tasks and simplifies deployment and virtualization of major workloads, which provides a path to full lights-out automation.
Cost efficiency: Windows Server 8 leverages commodity storage, networking, and server infrastructure, as well as offering increased power efficiency for superior acquisition and operating economics.
