  14. 14. Edition Comparison by Server Role
  15. 15. Hyper-V  Hyper-V is a hypervisor-based technology that is a feature of Windows Server 2008. Windows hypervisor is a thin layer of software running directly on the hardware, which works in conjunction with an optimized instance of Windows Server 2008 that allows multiple operating system instances to run on a physical server simultaneously. It leverages the powerful enhancements of processors and provides customers with a scalable, reliable, security- enhanced and highly available virtualization platform.
  16. 16. Hyper-V requires specific hardware  An x64-based processor. Hyper-V will be available only in the x64-based versions of Windows Server 2008—specifically, the x64- based versions of Windows Server 2008 Standard, Windows Server 2008 Enterprise, and Windows Server 2008 Datacenter.  Hardware-assisted virtualization. This is available in processors that include a virtualization option; specifically Intel VT or AMD-V.  Hardware Data Execution Protection (DEP) must be available and be enabled. Specifically, you must enable Intel XD bit (execute disable bit) or AMD NX bit (no execute bit).
  17. 17. Difference between windows 2003 and windows 2008  Windows 2008 gives you two installation types, Full installation and Server Core installation  Windows server 2008 Installation is faster because it’s 32 bit where as 2003 it is 16 bit as well as 32 bit  Windows deployment services (WDS) instead of RIS in 2003 server  Services are known as role in windows server 2008, like Active Directory has been renamed to Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS)  Virtualization (Hyper-V) is the main difference between windows 2003 and windows 2008  PowerShell been fully supported, you can manage easily using PowerShell script and PowerShell commands
