Windows Server "8" Beta Jump Start

What you`ll see here, is the beginning of a new era. This is what`s all about, the true cloud operating system. No more show stopping. It`s all here!

To get a jump start, I`ll suggest you read a couple of blog post by some of my fellow MVP`s on the subject.

First thing first, click on this link to read the glossary that Aidan Finn wrote. This list should open your eyes and probably let you have some ideas of what might be possible in this build. (Example: think of the possibilities with the SMB File Cluster for scale out applications, using the new SMB protocol together with a new Hyper-V Cluster. If you`re able to achieve any down time for your VMs in this environment, you`re doing something seriously wrong ;-)

Some other useful links related to the subject.

To be honest, bookmark those blogs if you`re interested in catching up on all the new and excited features in Win Server 8, and especially Hyper-V 3.0
