Features

Improving the Web Application Platform
Windows Server 2008 R2 includes many enhancements that make this release the most robust Windows Server Web application platform yet. It offers an updated Web server role, Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.5, and greater support for .NET on Server Core. Design goals for IIS 7.5 concentrated on improvements that enable Web administrators to more easily deploy and manage Web applications that increase both reliability and scalability. Additionally, IIS 7.5 has streamlined management capabilities and provides more ways to customize your Web serving environment. The following improvements to IIS and the Windows Web platform are included in Windows Server 2008 R2:
  Reduced Effort to Administer and Support Web-Based Applications
  Reduced Support and Troubleshooting Effort
  Improved File-Transfer Services
  Ability to Extend Functionality and Features
  Improved .NET Support
  Improved Application Pool Security
  IIS.NET Community Portal

Enabling Server and Desktop Virtualization
Virtualization is a major part of today’s data centers. The operating efficiencies offered by virtualization allow organizations to dramatically reduce operational effort and power consumption. Windows Server 2008 R2 provides the following virtualization types: Client and Server virtualization provided by Hyper-V and Presentation virtualization with Remote Desktop Services.
  Hyper-V
  Windows Server 2008 R2 introduces a new version of Hyper-V. Hyper-V in Windows Server 2008 R2 includes a number of core areas of improvement for creating dynamic virtual data centers including increased availability and performance, improved management, simplified methods for deployment and new features including live migration.
  Remote Desktop Services (formerly known as Terminal Services)
  Remote Desktop Services provides users and administrators with both the features and the flexibility necessary to build the most robust access experience in any deployment scenario. To expand the Remote Desktop Services feature set, Microsoft has been investing in the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, also known as VDI. VDI is a centralized desktop delivery architecture, which enables Windows and other desktop environments to run and be managed in virtual machines on a centralized server.

Improving Power Management and Streamlining Management
The ongoing management of servers in the data center is one of the most time-consuming tasks facing IT professionals today. Any management strategy you deploy must support the management of both your physical and virtual environments. To help with this problem, Windows Server 2008 R2 has new features to reduce the ongoing management of Windows Server 2008 R2 and to reduce the administrative effort for common day-to-day operational tasks. These include:
  Improved data center power consumption management
  Improved Management of File Services
  Improved remote administration
  Reduced administrative effort for administrative tasks performed interactively
  Enhanced command-line and automated management by using PowerShell version 2.0
  Improved identity management
  Improved compliance with established standards and best practices

Scalability and Reliability
Windows Server 2008 R2 is capable of unprecedented workload size, dynamic scalability, and across-the-board availability and reliability. A host of new and updated features will be available, including leveraging sophisticated CPU architectures, increased operating system componentization, and improved performance and scalability for applications and services.
  Leveraging sophisticated CPU architectures
  Increased operating system componentization
  Improved performance and scalability for applications and services
  Improved Storage Solutions
  Improved Protection of Intranet Resources

Making the Experience Better Together with Windows 7
Windows Server 2008 R2 has many features that are designed specifically to work with client computers running Windows 7. Windows 7 is the next version of the Windows client operating system from Microsoft. Features that are only available when running Windows 7 client computers with server computers running Windows Server 2008 R2 include:
  Simplified remote connectivity for corporate computers by using the DirectAccess feature
  Secured remote connectivity for private and public computers
