Microsoft releases Windows Server 2008 R2 RC
The final edition of Microsoft’s Windows Server 2008 will be released alongside Windows 7 before Christmas.
Microsoft has made the release candidate (RC) for the second version of Windows Server 2008 available today, saying the server system will hit the market at the same time as Windows 7, which is set for release before Christmas.
In a speech at TechEd yesterday, Bill Veghte, senior vice president of the Windows Business, said the lineup was "tracking well for holiday availability."
Windows Server 2008 R2 RC dubbed Windows 7 Server by some features a new File Classification Infrastructure, while the updated Hyper-V offers virtualisation users scalability to 64 processors, as well as new Live Migration. The second release also updates the web application platform, includes a power management system, and is designed to integrate with the new Windows 7 operating system.
The Windows Server 2008 R2 release candidate can be downloaded from the Microsoft website.
