Characteristics

Core Capabilities

  • Server virtualization: Windows Server provides tools for creating and managing a virtualized server computing environment. You can replicate a virtual machine from one location to another, without shared storage, storage arrays, or other replication technologies. The Datacenter edition allows you to create encrypted virtual machines.
  • Server management: Server Core and Nano Server provide minimal environments for running specific server roles. These roles are then easier to maintain and manage and less exposed to attacks. Administrators can collectively manage groups of servers from a single integrated console.
  • Integrated services: Windows Server provides a unified platform for web publishing that integrates IIS, ASP.NET, and Windows Communication Foundation and also supports SharePoint Services.
  • Failover Clustering: Administrators can minimize service and application disruptions by creating a redundant server environment with dynamic hardware partitioning.
  • Direct access: This secure tunneling feature allows network access from any computer or device. It is faster than typical VPN connections and provides offsite access to file shares, onsite equipment, and other resources.
