A glimpse into Windows Server 8

Hi folks, it has been a while as we continue to be heads down on the performance for Windows Server 8!  But recently some of the new features and enhancements for Windows Server 8 have been introduced in Bill Laing’s, Corporate Vice President of the Server and Cloud Division, blog on the Server and Cloud Platform Blog, and I encourage you to go check them out. 

We also had the opportunity at the //BUILD/ conference, held in Anaheim, Californiain September to share with the developer community and ecosystem partners more of those performance features and optimizations.  Example areas included Virtualization Scalability, low latency networking performance, Power optimizations, and Web Scalability.  I am sharing below some of those sessions, so please have a look and enjoy!
