10 Great Features for Windows Server 8

Azure Sphere

Whether or not Windows Server 8 gets the thumbs up depends on it addressing two major needs. The first involves revamping the OS to meet the demands for cloud computing, virtualization and the continued “consumerization of IT”. The second is to make certain that sweeping changes won’t cause longtime Windows server admins to need to re-learn administrative tasks or have to make changes to infrastructure to roll out Windows Server 8.” I definitely agree. Windows Server 8 will need to be completely optimized for the cloud to meet the demands of today’s workforce, but I don’t think Microsoft will have a problem incorporating cloud computing into Windows Server 8 at all. Here is Part of PCMag’s list of the most impressive features in Windows Server 8: New Deployment Options:  Windows Server 8 can be deployed in three different ways. Full Graphical User Interface (GUI),  Full Server, and Server Core. The full GUI mode is useful for when you have to run applications that require a full GUI. Full server is basically just like the full GUI except it doesn’t include Windows Explorer and Internet Explorer. Server Core basically a completely stripped down, bare bones, installation. The new feature that comes with Server Core in Server 8 allow you to switch back and forth between the GUI and Server Core without having to reinstall anything. This is great when you really need to run one of those GUI-only apps. Microsoft is a strong supporter of using Server Core over the GUI for performing most of your tasks on Server 8. A Redesigned Server Manager: Server manager’s new user interface looks like the Metro user interface from Windows 8 Client and Windows Phone 7. A newly redesigned dashboard allows administrators to perform multi-machine management. Server Manager is on both PowerShell and Windows Manager Interface. So what can be done in one interface can be done in the other. If you want to read the entire list, you can click on the source link below. Source What do you think of the new Windows Server 8?]]>
