  4. 4. Today’s Challenges Windows Server® is frequently deployed to support a single role or a fixed workload In this scenario, administrators are required to deploy and service all of Windows Server These non-value add features present a servicing and security burden Administrators think of servers in terms of server roles

  6. 6. Key benefits Value Proposition Reduce the attack and servicing surface area for certain server roles by only installing what is required and administrators use Servers optimized by role are easier to service and manage Fewer patches Server management lifecycle oriented around roles Increased reliability and security Less installed and less running
