Windows server is a famous platform in development of infrastructures used in connection applications, web services, and networks. The operating system server enables users to develop, manage and deliver experiences in the applications. The server also provides advanced security features in the network connections and infrastructure. It also increases the technology value and efficiency of the organization using it.
Windows server has a set of comprehensive features that ensures the process of managing and deploying servers is easy. Administration of a server is done by a server manager, which ensures an integrated and seamless experience in management. However, management for multiple servers is done by automation with the aid of windows PowerShell. The PowerShell is a hub for command lines and scripting language that is made to offer automation in administrative tasks for the server. The roles may include active directory and internet information services (IIS). Most organizations benefit from the windows server in the services of windows deployment and reliability monitoring.
The services of server manager is to guide administrator with the installation process, configuration, and managing the features and roles of server. The server manager has eliminated some of the customizable features in earlier versions. The replaced features include the setup to configure and manage server, and the windows Add or remove component feature. The server manager has simplified the security wizard for configuration by eliminating the need of administrator configuration. The server manager automatically configures the recommended settings on default as they are installed.
Windows server has a window PowerShell that has a shell command line and language for scripting that is used by IT experts. The PowerShell helps in automation of systems tasks administration and ensures unique address to specific system problem in the server applications. Windows server PowerShell is simple to use and learn. This is because the services works with all IT infrastructures, command lines, scripts and does not require programming background. The PowerShell use .NET common language runtime and .NET framework, which are responsible with returning and accepting .Net objects. The Windows deployment services are a redesign and an updated version of an earlier version of remote installation services (RIS).
The windows deployment service facilitates deployment and adoption of windows operating system in a quick and rapid way. The service can be used in setting up of new computers with the use of network installation. This simplifies the installation process, as it does not require physical CD installation on each computer. The service is also used in repurposing existing computers. The windows server has a windows reliability and performance monitor that offers IT experts with tools for monitoring and accessing the system reliability and performance.
The benefits of server include the reduced power consumption and this is enabled by reducing processor power consumption. The power consumption is also reduced by adjusting the processor speed and reduced power consumption in storage services.
Developing different projects over the years our outsource software development team used Windows server in so many of them, for example: Web Solution For Business Management, iPhone Trivia Application, Digital Library of Latvian National Library, Ronald McDonald House Charities Latvia Website, DSA Training System and others.
