Key features of Windows Server 2008
- Server Core brings a new way not only to manage roles but also to deploy a Windows Server. With Server Core, we can say goodbye to unnecessary GUIs, applications, services, and many more commonly attacked features.
- Read-only domain controller (RODC) This new type of domain controller, as its name implies, hosts read-only partitions of the Active Directory database.
- Server Manager is a single solution (technically, a Microsoft Management Console [MMC]) snap-in that is used as a single source for managing system identity (as well as other key system information), identifying problems with servers, displaying server status, enabled roles and features, and general options such as server updates and feedback.
- BitLocker Drive Encryption is an integral new security feature in Windows Server 2008 that protects servers at locations, such as branch offices, as well as mobile computers for all those roaming users out there. BitLocker provides offline data and operating system protection by ensuring that data stored on the computer is not revealed if the machine is tampered with when the installed operating system is offline.
