Windows Server 2008 provides powerful improvements to the base operating system over Windows Server 2003.  Improvements include those to networking, advanced security features, remote application access, centralised server role management, performance and reliability monitoring tools, failover clustering, deployment, and the file system. These improvements and many others help organisations maximize the flexibility, availability, and control of their servers.

At this TechNet Update overview session you will be able to understand how Windows Server 2008 provides:

  • Easier and more secure Branch Office management through use of Read Only Domain Controllers (RODC) and technologies such as BitLocker
  • Appropriate uses for the new Server Core role and PowerShell to automate common administrative tasks
  • Deep virtualisation integration with a Hypervisor-based solution that is part of Windows
  • Terminal Services based applications that are seamless to use from the end user's perspective
  • More secure network environment through customisable Health Policies and Network Access Protection
  • Internet Information Server 7.0 which supports a flexible, text-based configuration system, deep command line support, and a highly modular architecture

These events will be held at the Microsoft New Zealand offices in Auckland and Wellington.  Presentation and demos are 90 minutes in length, being delivered by Microsoft NZ Technology Advisor Nathan Mercer.
