Microsoft has completely redesigned the Server Manager as a multi-server management tool that also combines formerly separate administrative utilities into a single interface. A dashboard shows the various servers in the network according to their roles or any other logical groupings. From the Server Manager, administrators are able to drill right down into running (and problematic) services on individual machines. For certain operations, it is also possible to select multiple servers to execute them with a single click of the mouse.

Microsoft's upcoming Windows Server 8 has started gaining some prominence since the software giant previewed it at the BUILD conference. Its cloud-based paradigm and focus on large-scale deployments is self-evident, and at least one executive from Microsoft has called Windows Server 8 "the most cloud-optimized OS" developed by the Redmond-based company.

For now, its availability as a developer preview on MSDN means that various in-depth assessments of its capabilities are starting to roll in. It is clear even at this early stage that the next server operating system from Microsoft is a technically sophisticated one, and crammed with capabilities that bring many previously enterprise-only capabilities to small and mid-sized businesses.

This slideshow highlights some of the top features businesses can expect from Windows Server 8.
