News: Cloud computing becomes simpler with Windows Server 8

Most of the ITs are in an infinite need for more computing power to deliver business solutions and the ever increasing demands for greater agility, higher efficiency and lower costs. Now, it is much easier to deliver on these seemingly contradictory demands by leveraging the benefits of cloud computing with our public and private cloud solutions. In this article, we’re really excited to give you a sneak peek at the next step in private cloud computing by showing you just two hundreds of new capabilities coming in the next version of Windows Server, internally code-named “Windows Server 8.”
In this 36:50 duration online video, it is demonstrated how Windows Server 8 Virtual Machines help you build private clouds of greater scale by supporting 16 virtual processors fully loaded with business critical workloads like SQL Server.


Then, you can see how it is required to deliver improved fault tolerance and flexibility without the added tax or complexity of additional hardware, tools and software licenses, by using the new built-in Hyper-V Replica feature. All it is required is a few clicks, a network connection and Windows Server 8. Microsoft is looking forward to share more about Windows Server 8 at Microsoft’s BUILD conference, September 13-16, in Anaheim. Therefore, as of now, we can say it is just a beginning.
