Microsoft Nano Server Is Here
Make way for a new server SKU from Microsoft, as the company has announced, Nano Server, a purpose-designed operating system to run cloud applications and containers. This is basically a refactored version of the Windows Server, one that is optimized for the cloud, allows for remote management of installations, and of course, features a much smaller footprint for quick and easy deployments. And this means that it will receive fewer patches and updates, meaning less downtime. Plus, this new version also better uses available resources, at least when compared to the full Windows Server, hence the name. So this is essentially an even leaner version of Server Core, though without 32-bit support. About time it was dropped, though, as app development on Microsoft’s server platform is now overwhelmingly 64-bit. A number of other features have also been stripped, including logon and remote desktop support, meaning management is exclusive to WMI and PowerShell...We have quotes a spoiler and more at windows8newsinfo forum.
