  • The Core Parking feature, which is configured by using Group Policy, allows Windows Server 2008 R2 to consolidate process onto the fewest number of possible processor cores and suspends inactive processor cores. If additional processing power is required, the Core Parking feature activates inactive processor cores to handle the increased processing requirements. Windows Server 2008 R2 has the ability to adjust processor performance (or, “P-state”) and subsequently adjust the server power consumption. Depending on the processor architecture, you can configure how P-states are adjusted by using Group Policy, giving you very fine control over processor power consumption.Windows Server 2008 R2 supports the ability to boot from Storage Area Network (SAN), which eliminates the need for local hard disks in the individual server computers. And the performance for accessing storage on SANs has been greatly improved.
