Windows 2008 Hosting Extra Features (Part 2)

Posted on: November 4, 2008

Windows Server 2008 hosting features that perform improvement for the following aspects:

Windows Server 2008 Terminal Services:
Terminal Services now supports Remote Desktop Protocol 6.0. The most notable improvement is the ability to share a single application over a Remote Desktop connection, instead of the entire desktop. This feature is called Terminal Services Remote App. Other features new to Terminal Services include Terminal Services Gateway and Terminal Services Web Access (full web interface). With Terminal Services Gateway, authorized computers are able to connect securely to a Terminal Server or Remote Desktop from the Internet using RDP via HTTPS without implementing a VPN session first. Additional ports do not need to be opened in the firewall; RDP is tunneled through HTTPS. Terminal Services Web Access enables administrators to provide access to the Terminal Services Sessions via a Web interface.

Windows PowerShell Integrated in Windows Server 2008:
Windows Server 2008 is the first Windows operating system to ship with Windows PowerShell, Microsoft’s new extensible command line shell and task-based scripting technology. PowerShell is based on object-oriented programming and .NET Framework 2.0 that includes more than 120 system administration utilities, consistent syntax and naming conventions, and built-in capabilities to work with common management data such as the Windows Registry, certificate store, or Windows Management Instrumentation.

Windows System Resource Manager:
Windows System Resource Manager (WSRM) is being integrated into Windows Server 2008. It provides resource management and can be used to control the amount of resources a process or a user can use based on business priorities. Process Matching Criteria, which is defined by the name, type or owner of the process, enforces restrictions on the resource usage by a process that matches the criteria.

Windows Server 2008 Server Manager:
Server Manager gathers together all of the operations users would want to conduct on the server, such as, getting a remote deployment method set up, adding more server roles etc and provides a consolidated, portal-like view about the status of each role.
