OEMs leverage the benefits made available through Windows Embedded Server to build and deliver a wide variety of server solutions, including:

  • Medical Imaging
  • Security & Surveillance
  • Industrial Automation
  • Document Imaging
  • Streaming Media Server
  • Telecommunications (PBX Server, Call Center Server, IVR Server and Teleconferencing)

Windows Embedded Server 2008 R2 expands on existing technology and adds new features to help OEMs deliver these solutions with increased reliability and flexibility.

Powerful virtualization features help OEMs increase hardware utilization and run new and legacy functionality side-by-side while ensuring workload isolation. Improved processor power management and power profile features help OEMs reduce the carbon footprint in their solutions by minimizing power consumption.

The Server Core installation, in addition to reducing the attack surface of your solution, now supports more server roles, including Microsoft.NET application. Advanced security enhancements include Bit-locker and Read-Only Domain Controller (RODC), which hardens the operating system and protects your server environment to ensure a solid foundation for appliance development.

New virtualization tools, management enhancements, Server Core and features designed specifically to work with embedded devices or client computers running Windows 7, all help save time and reduce costs, making Windows Embedded Server 2008 R2 a highly robust and reliable foundation on which to deliver dedicated solutions and appliances.

Windows Embedded Server 2008 R2 Enhancements

Server Core
Windows Embedded Server 2008 R2 includes an even more granular definition of server roles than in previous Windows Server operating systems. This finer granularity allows OEMs to install only the operating system components and features that are needed to support their applications and services, which results in a more efficient footprint and reduces the attack surface on the solution.

The Server Core installation option further reduces the attack surface of your solution by eliminating the graphical user interface on Windows Embedded Server 2008 R2. In addition, Windows Embedded Server 2008 R2 Server Core installation now supports more server roles, such as Microsoft.NET connection software.

Virtualization
With its built-in server virtualization technology, Windows Embedded Server 2008 R2 helps OEMs increase hardware utilization while running both new and legacy functionality side-by-side in order to ensure workload isolation.

  • Hyper-V - Windows Embedded Server 2008 R2 includes the much-anticipated update to Microsoft’s virtualization technology Hyper-V, which was designed to augment both existing virtual machine management as well as to address specific challenges around server migration.
  • Live Migration - Hyper-V is an important technology for one of Windows Embedded Server 2008 R2’s marquee features, Live Migration. With Hyper-V version 1.0, Windows Embedded Server 2008 is capable of Quick Migration, which moves VMs between physical hosts in milliseconds, enabling invisible migration operations to connected users.

BitLocker
BitLocker allows OEMs using Windows Embedded Enterprise and Windows Embedded Standard 2011 to encrypt removable drives, such as eSATA hard disks, USB hard disks, USB thumb drivers and compact flash drives. This allows the same level of protection for data stored on removable media as the operating system volume.

Active Directory helps centralize the consistent deployment of the BitLocker feature across the entire OEM solution, including the operating system volume and removable drives which use Windows Embedded Enterprise, Windows Embedded Standard 2011 and Windows Embedded Server 2008 R2.

Read-Only Domain Controller
Read-only Domain Controller (RODC) in Windows Embedded Server 2008 R2 improves OEM device security and reduces risk of stolen information. Furthermore, BitLocker to encrypt removable drives in Windows Embedded Enterprise or Windows Embedded Standard 2011, can be centralized and deployed consistently, working together with Active Directory in Windows Embedded Server 2008 R2, helping OEMs deliver secure systems.

Agile VPN
The Agile VPN feature allows a VPN to have multiple paths between points in the VPN tunnel, connecting embedded devices running Windows Embedded Enterprise or Windows Embedded Standard 2011 to servers running Windows Embedded Server 2008 R2. In the event of failure, Agile VPN automatically uses another network path to maintain the existing VPN tunnel in order to avoid interruption of connectivity. This allows OEMs to offer robust connectivity for their smart, connected and service-oriented solutions.

Direct Access
DirectAccess is a new technology built into Windows Embedded Server 2008 R2, Windows Embedded Enterprise and Windows Embedded Standard 2011. It allows corporations to configure a secure communication path between remote devices and centralized data in headquarters, without going through VPN authentication.

PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication Systems)
Medical devices in the field can access PACS based server appliances directly, thereby eliminating the need for VPN authentication and allowing for easier connectivity.

Windows Embedded Server 2008 R2 Editions

Windows Embedded Server 2008 R2 is available in both Standard and Enterprise editions. The Enterprise edition supports larger memory and failover clustering and has enhanced virtualization rights.

Each of these editions has three SKUs:

  • Windows Embedded Server - Full Server capabilities for OEMs with great flexibility in the design and use of their server product.
  • Essentials (Server Appliance)  - The Essentials SKU has the same key features as the Standard product, but has license provisions applicable to supporting server appliances that OEMs build which have no keyboard, video or mouse connected ongoing.
  • Telecommunications - Telecommunications system manufacturers that provide systems the following types of systems can make use of the Windows Server products that have license provisions specific to their needs and a price which will allow them to create very price-competitive solutions.
    • IP-PBX
    • Audio Conferencing
    • Video Conferencing
    • Voice Mail
    • Unified Messaging
    • Automated Call Distribution
    • Contact Center
    • Interactive Voice Response
