Windows Server 8: Massive storage enhancements ahead

Sandro Villinger | Sept. 15, 2011
In the first part of my 2-part review of Windows Server 8 I looked at some of the best of the more than 300 new features Microsoft packed into the upcoming server OS. Now it's time to turn our attention to some massive storage enhancements.

Nice: Remote FX supports full multi-touch. You can use a local touchscreen and control a remote machine with nothing but your fingers. Another great addition that's likely to make admins happy is full USB passthrough.

Bottom line

Windows server hasn't had such a massive change in a long time (or, maybe, ever). Keep in mind though that at this point in time, it's still a developer preview. As is the case of the Windows 8 client, things aren't as smooth as they could be and it's likely that some of this stuff is even going to change. We'll keep you posted.
