Comprehensive Setup

Get started with Windows Storage Server 2008 faster than ever. The fast and simple installation and deployment allow users to focus on work instead of spending hours tinkering with configuration and the initial setup. This time, the OEM-extensible out-of-the-box experience guides you through the setup and configuration, making your job easier when deploying a Storage Server.

File Server Optimization

The file server role is optimized by default to gain over 8% better performance. The old-school 8.3 name creation routines and file-system aliasing were removed along with the overhead they bring to file-system drivers. These settings, along with the general performance tuning guidelines for Windows Server 2008, can vastly improve the performance of your Storage Server.

Single Instance Storage

Single Instance Storage allows you to reduce disk storage consumption by eliminating duplicate files on data volumes. The amount of saved storage can vary depending on the type of data, quantity of duplicates, and their file size. Businesses worldwide save anywhere from 7% to 70% on storage using this technology. Newly added improvements only increase this number with support for 128 volumes, a command-line interface, WMI support, improved clustering, and more.

Windows File Sharing

High-performance SMB 2.0 for Windows makes file sharing much faster. Whenever files are copied, the new SMB (Server Message Block) speeds up the process, eliminating any of the frustrations caused by SMB 1.0 previously.

Full Text Search

Being able to search on a Storage Server is extremely important. The new, fast, and effective search can be accessed using Windows XP and later. All Windows Storage Server 2008 versions support Search 4.0, which can be downloaded and added to storage appliances at any time.

Windows PowerShell

Windows PowerShell is essentially the enhanced version of the command application we've all grown to love. The task-based nature of PowerShell allows system administrators to perform interactions with easy access to a powerful scripting language. Automate administrative tasks and take full control over your Storage Server, saving you more time than ever before.

BitLocker Drive Encryption

Security is an issue all businesses have to face on the daily. Data thieves and malicious hackers try to get into your Storage Server to gain access to sensitive information. BitLocker is used to prevent these attackers from breaking system protections or using offline viewing to gain access to files stored on a protected drive.

Windows Server Backup

Backing up your Storage Server is important, as unpredictable disasters can happen anytime. This release offers basic backup and recovery options to keep your volumes and system state backed up securely. If needed, systems can be recovered to new hard disks using a full server backup or the Windows Recovery Environment.
