Product information "Windows Server 2008 Standard"

Windows Server 2008 Standard, the successor to Windows Server 2003, offers you many new features and programs. A wide variety of data transfer, administration and access protection features have been newly integrated and optimised in Win Server 2008 Standard. Thus you have a reliable server operation system for your business. MS Windows Server 2008 Standard is especially suitable for small and medium-sized enterprises. 

Intuitive user interface for all requirements 

Windows Server 2008 Standard, aimed especially at companies with server operations, offers you ideal support and a reliable operating system for your server with its new functions and programs. Win Server 2008 Standard can also be installed as a so-called core version, which operates without a graphic user interface. This version is, so to speak, the minimised version of the operating system and also only contains the essential features. However the normal installation version of Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Standard contains the full range of new features, meaning you also benefit from, among other things, the new Hyper-V virtualisation environment. This enables you to virtualise entire server systems and to organise both virtual and physical resources with the help of an administration tool. 

Manage your server optimally

You now have the option to choose between several modes for the administration of your server. One of these is the Server Manager, which manages central functions and presents you with a continuous overview of the system status as well as notifications from components. At the same time, a number of administration tools have been included in MS Windows Server 2008 Standard from its predecessor version. Other modes are an integrated WMI interface with which the host provides functions for administration scripts, PowerShell, which can also reuse existing scripts for example in bat or vbs format, and imbedded snap-ins and MMC.   

New developments in Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Standard

The system requirements for Windows Server 2008 Standard are higher compared to those for its predecessor, which can of course be ascribed to the large number of new functions and features. As a result, Win Server 2008 Standard provides you in turn with an extensive, enhanced system with numerous new tools and capabilities:

  • Core server: minimised operating system mode without graphical user interface
  • PowerShell: system administration using scripts
  • Terminal services: new additional functions
  • Active Directory: user and resource administration tool
  • BitLocker: data encryption
  • IIS 7.0: new version of Internet Information Services with support for PHP, SSL and HTML

Apart from these new technical program developments and improvements, system optimisations have also been carried out in Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Standard, resulting for example in enabling a tripling of data throughput rates in comparison to the predecessor version. 

Security with Windows Server 2008 Standard 

System security is always a major priority for Microsoft, particularly for servers. Therefore many new security features have been provided for you in  Win Server 2008 Standard. Included in these are an integrated firewall with revised policies and settings in the new administration snap-in, the read only domain controller for application in safety-critical areas, integrated Network Access Protection (NAP) for continuous evaluation of client status, and DC isolation strategies with which you can create and manage isolated logical networks within physical networks. Thus Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Standard offers you a server operating system which is not only robust but above all secure.
