Windows Server 2008 is a Microsoft server operating system that was released to the public on February 27, 2008. It most closely resembles Windows Vista in look and feel. Windows Server 2008 is a robust operating system, including many highly desirable features for servers that have a demand for maximum uptime and availability. One new feature, called "self-healing NTFS," allows a sub-process to repair any detected disk errors as opposed to potentially shutting down a disk to resolve the error. Additionally, this improved operating system allows the administrator to install certain hot patches without the need for a system reboot.

Windows Server 2008 also functions as may types of server. It may be used for a file server, to store company files and data. It may also be used as a Web server which would host websites for one or many individuals (or companies). Servers are also useful to share out printers and even applications across a business or domain. Centralized resources bring greater efficiency to a corporation.
