Microsoft has made the Windows Server 2008 an update that is feature-rich and comes with a lot of functional advantages compared to its predecessors.


Functionally Componentize

The Windows Server 2008 is completely reengineered to be functionally componentized which is a significant change by Microsoft. This componentization creates a more convenient and easy serviceable system for both Microsoft and the customers. It also allows for a more reliable and secure system where the communication and the only component dependencies are being kept to a minimum.

The componentization within the Windows Server 2008 also enables its new functions such as the role-based management, image-based deployment facilities, and the Server Core.


Server Manager Function

The Windows Server 2008 features a new Server Manager compared to the previous versions that have a separate management console for the different roles and functions in the operating system. This is now a one stop shop for every management needs and is now the only tool to be used by Windows administrators.

The Server Manager is MMC-based which provides a user interface to manage every role and function of the system including the Application Server, Active Directory Domain Services, DNS Server, DHCP Server, Terminal Services, File Services, Web Server, etc. This also has a couple of troubleshooting tools such as the Windows Firewall, Task Scheduler, Device Manage, WMI Control, and the Windows Server Backup.


Internet Information Services Update

The Windows Server 2008 new web server is driven by the update in the IIS or the Internet Information Services which is the IIS 7. It is entirely componentized which only installs components which are necessary for the desired configuration.

It has an improved management console and supports the deployment of the copy Web application and the delegated administration. The IIS 7 of the Windows Server 2008 is also backed by the new configuration store that is NET-based which is an improvement compared to the monolithic configuration store of the previous versions.


Network Access Protection

The straightforward and convenient configurable network quarantining function was first planned to launch on the Windows Server 2003, but it is now in the newer Windows Server 2008, the NAP or Network Access Protection.

NAP can allow you to set up security policies for your network. It also includes a remediation failback to the Microsoft Update or the Windows Update whenever the Windows Server Update Services happen to be unavailable. NAP is also compatible with the NAC or Network Admission Control quarantining technology by Cisco.


Full Drive Encryption in BitLocker

As a full disk encryption solution, BitLocker protects stored data on some executive notebook computers that are easily stolen and lost. For you to store encryption keys, it requires hardware that is TPM 1.2-based and can also be configured through the Group Policy.

This is particularly convenient and helpful for machines that are often less well physically protected such as those in branch offices. BitLocker also works well with other technologies to create a much better security when it comes to branch office solution.


New Terminal Services Function

With the Windows Server 2008, there is a major change when it comes to the Terminal Services. It has a new Terminal Services RemoteApp function that gives admins the ability to deploy individual applications remotely into desktops instead of the entire computer environments.

The Terminal Services also feature a couple of small changes such as the TS Easy Print that can make printing into local printers from any remote session that much easier. These variations in the Terminal Services also include the 32-bit color supports in the sessions and the copy and paste operations that are seamless between the host operating system and the remote sessions.
