Windows 2008 – online sessions (Videos)

I’m excited with the new changes and functionalities that Windows 2008 will provide to the enterprise and hosters. To mention some of these features, Windows 2008 provides a minimal version of the OS (Server Core – the most efficient Windows version ever), expansion in the capabilities of powershell and how the server can be administered (you’ll be able to obtain a script for almost any correspondant UI control or task), additional HA features are incorporated/enhanced into Windows Server (failover clusters, Network Load Balancing, dynamic hardware partitioning, robust storage options, and advanced machine-check architecture), enhanced OS-virtualization mechanism to consolidate and optimize the resources in the DataCenters (Hyper-V), let’s don’t forget IIS 7.0 and its additional features (PHP integration, security enhancements, larger no. of web-sites supported per server).

If you want to know more about these features, check out the following set of online videos which presents the capabilities of Windows 2008:
