◆ Web

Through improved management and diagnostics, development tools and applications, lower cost infrastructure, Windows Server 2008 enables you to effectively provide a rich web-based experience.

Internet Information Services 7.0: Windows Server 2008 release for the Web provides a unified platform that integrates Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0, ASP.NET, Windows Communication Foundation, Windows workflow foundation and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0. IIS 7.0 is a Windows Web server of the existing major enhancement technology integration in the platform to play a central role. By assigning the management of IIS 7.0, enhanced security and reduced attack surface, Web services, applications and integrated health management and improving the key management tool to help developers and managers to maximize the network / Internet interface control.

◆ virtualization

Through the built-in server virtualization technology, Windows Server 2008 enables you to reduce costs and improve hardware utilization, optimize infrastructure and improve server availability.

Terminal Services: Windows Server 2008 introduced in a Terminal Services to connect to remote computers and applications of the new features. Terminal Services RemoteApp Terminal Server will be running on the user's desktop applications and fully integrated, so long-distance application up and running in the users local computer running the same amount of money; user can program the remote location to run together with local procedures. Terminal Services Web access can also be flexible through the Web browser, remote access to applications, and even allow users more ways to access and use to run Terminal Server in the process. These features, together with the Terminal Services Gateway application that allows users to HTTPS access to remote desktop and remote applications, from firewall restrictions.

◆ Safety

Windows Server 2008 is by far the most secure Windows Server. It strengthened the operating system and security innovations, including Network Access Protection, Federated Rights Management, Read-Only Domain Controller, for your network, data and business to provide the highest level of protection.

Network Access Protection (NAP): This is a new framework that allows IT administrators define health requirements for network and limits do not meet these requirements of computer and network communications. NAP enforcement of administrator-defined, is used to describe the health requirements of a particular organization's strategy. For example, the health requirements can be defined as the operating system to install all updates, or to install or update anti-virus or anti-spyware. In this way, network administrators can define a computer connected to the network should have a benchmark level of protection.

Microsoft BitLocker drive in more than a full volume encryption, the data for you to provide additional security protection, and even when the system is in unauthorized operation or time to run different operating systems, data and control can also provide security.

Read-Only Domain Controller (RODC): This is the operating system Windows Server 2008 domain controller in a new configuration, so that organizations can be a domain controller can not guarantee the safety of the location easy to deploy a domain controller. RODC to maintain a given Active Directory directory service domain of the read-only copy of the database. Before this time, when the user must use a domain controller for authentication, but it can not be in the branch office domain controller to provide adequate physical security, it is important to the adoption of wide area network (WAN) for authentication. In many cases, this is not an effective solution. By read-only copy of Active Directory database placed in closer to the local branch office users, these users can log on faster and more efficient access to authentication on the network resources are not sufficient even if the physical security to deploy traditional domain controller environment.

Failover Clustering: These improvements aimed at more easily configure the server cluster, while data and applications to provide protection and ensure its availability. Through failover cluster using the new validation tool, you can test the system, storage and network configuration is applicable to the cluster. With the Windows Server 2008 failover cluster, the administrator can more easily perform the installation and migration tasks, as well as the management and operation of the task. Improvement of the cluster infrastructure help administrators maximize the services available to users of the availability, availability of better storage and network performance and enhance security.

◆ business a solid foundation for the work load

Windows Server 2008 is by far the most flexible, the most stable operating system Windows Server. With new technologies and new features, such as Server Core, PowerShell, Windows Deployment Services and enhanced networking and clustering technologies, Windows Server 2008 provides you with the performance of the most comprehensive and reliable Windows platform for all of your business to meet the load and application procedural requirements.

Server Core: from the Windows Server 2008 to start the Beta 2 version, the administrator when installing the Windows Server can choose to install only the implementation of DHCP, DNS, file server or domain controller role in the services they need. This new installation option to install only the necessary services and applications, only the server to provide basic functionality, there is no additional cost. While the Server Core installation option is a full-featured operating system model to support the designated role, but it does not include the server graphic user interface (GUI). Since the Server Core installation that contains only the functionality required to specify the role, the Server Core installation usually requires less maintenance and updating, as fewer components to manage. In other words, as a result of the server to install and run the procedure and fewer components, so exposed to the network less attack vector, thereby reducing the attack surface. If the component is not installed in the discovery of security flaws or vulnerabilities, you do not need to install the patch.

Windows PowerShell: This is a new command line shell, contains more than 130 kinds of tools and an integrated scripting language. It allows administrators to more easily control and securely automate routine system administration tasks across multiple servers in the case of particularly useful. Windows PowerShell does not require you to relocate the existing script, it is very suitable for the new function of Windows Server 2008 automatically. With concern about the management of the new scripting language and consistent syntax and utilities, Windows PowerShell to promote a system management tasks (such as Active Directory, Terminal Server, Internet Information Server (IIS) 7.0) of automation, improve the environment for organizations to address their unique system management problems.

The use of Windows PowerShell is easy to learn and use because it does not require programming background, it is the use of existing IT infrastructure, existing scripts and command-line tools available.

Server Manager: Server Manager is a Windows Server 2008 contains a new function. It is a "one-stop service" feature, designed to guide Information Technology (IT) administrators through the end-to-end process of installation, configuration and management as part of Windows Server 2008 server roles and functions. Server Manager and the replacement of the merger of the Microsoft Windows Server 2003's many functions, such as "manage your server" "configure your server", "Add or Remove Windows Components." You can use Server Manager to configure the machine on a variety of "roles" and "functional."

Windows Deployment Services (WDS): This is the updated and redesigned Remote Installation Services (RIS) Windows Server 2008 version, WDS to help the Windows operating system image based on the rapid adoption and deployment. WDS allows network will be Windows vista and Windows Server 2008 installation to the "bare metal" (not to install the operating system), and even supports mixed environments, including Microsoft Windows XP and Microsoft Windows Server 2003. Windows Deployment Services also provides an end-to-end solution for deployment of the Windows operating system to the client and server computers, and to reduce the deployment of Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista the total cost of ownership (TCO) and complexity.
