Branch Office Infrastructure Solution for Windows Server 2008

Brief Description

The Branch Office Infrastructure Solution version 3 (BOISv3) provides guidance to design and implement Microsoft’s branch infrastructure solution. This solution, previously Branch Office Infrastructure Solution for Windows Server 2003 R2, has been updated to support the features and functionality in Windows Server 2008 that support branch infrastructure.

Overview

Windows Server 2008 includes several enhancements to the base operating system plus powerful new functionalities that make it valuable in a branch office environment. These include:
- Mitigated Security Risks: The Read-Only Domain Controller is a powerful new feature that enables organizations provide their remote branch office with local authentication servers, without having to increase security exposure to their Domain Database. The RoDC also provides a read-only copy of the DNS and receives uni-directional updates from the Central Office DataCentre. BitLocker technology provides hardware-based encryption for data on branch office server. The Server Core installation option helps significantly decrease the servers’ surface area of exposure and management overheads by reducing the operating system footprint.
- Improved Network Performance: Windows Server 2008 offers several new or improved network technologies that will improve the efficiency of WAN communications. The new TCPIP Stack and the Server Message Block (SMB 2.0) is redesigned for networking environments especially when connecting branch offices. The Distributed File System Replication service (DFSR) is a multi-master replication engine that increases data availability and gives users in remote sites fast, reliable access to files.
- Improved Deployment and Administration: New management tools like the Server Manager Console provide a single, unified console for managing a server's configuration and system information, displaying server status, identifying problems with server role configuration, and managing all roles installed on the server.
BOISv3 provides an understanding of the complex issues that affect branch infrastructure planning and design. This solution was designed using a modular approach that will support future releases and add-on guides to support core as well as extended branch infrastructure services. The service guides that are available with this release focus specifically on key Windows Server 2008 role services. Future releases will present a selection of “extended” services to detail branch infrastructure focused on solutions for roles and products such as Hyper-V, System Center Configuration Manager, and Forefront Client Security. This guidance helps IT Service designers and architects minimize the branch office design and implementation costs and provide the most efficient and effective management possible, while still providing the desired user experience for staff in branch offices.

Microsoft® Visual Studio Team System 2008 Database Edition GDR September CTP

Brief Description

Microsoft® Visual Studio Team System 2008 Database Edition GDR September CTP
Microsoft® Visual Studio Team System 2008 Database Edition GDR implements support for SQL Server 2008.

Overview

In addition to providing support for SQL Server 2008 database projects, this release incorporates many previously released Power Tools as well as several new features. The new features include distinct Build and Deploy phases, Static Code Analysis and improved integration with SQL CLR projects.
Database Edition no longer requires a Design Database. Therefore, it is no longer necessary to install an instance of SQL Express or SQL Server prior to using Database Edition.
SQL Server Support

  • SQL Server 2008
    • All new data types:
      • Intrinsic (date, datetime2, datetimeoffset, time)
      • Built-in SQL CLR types (geography, geometry, hierarchyid)
    • New DML
      • Merge, table parameters, …
  • SQL Server Configuration Options
    • Server option settings will be verified prior to deployment or set during deployment
      Additional 1st Class Object Type Support
    • Rules, defaults, Asymmetric keys, symmetric keys, certificates, …

Projects

  • Server Projects
    • Server objects and option settings may be implemented in a separate Server Project
    • This enables a team to define a standard a configuration for their SQL servers and reference it from their Database Projects
  • Partial projects
    • Allowing code sharing between projects by including files from a different project, where the code is included as-is from the originating project and the source code control ownership remains with the originating project
    • This enables code reuse and single sourcing while having a single deployment unit
  • Composite projects
    • References to other database projects or .dbschema files that contribute to the same deployment unit.
    • This enables the separation of development roles and responsibilities and composition of Databases using multiple projects.

Single sourcing of external artifacts

  • SQL-CLR references allow the user to create a reference to a SQL-CLR project or SQL-CLR assembly. This automatically becomes an ASSEMBLY type in the Database Project

Build and Deploy

  • The Build process now produces a separate portable schema output that is fed in to a redistributable deployment engine
  • A redistributable deployment engine. For example, to implement a setup application that deploys the Database Project.

Refactoring

  • Preservation of Intent
    • Enables the deployment of refactoring changes as intended by the user (renames are deployed as renames not as drop/add statements for example)

New Refactoring Operations

  • Wildcard Expansion
  • Move Schema
  • Fully Qualify
  • Extensibility point which enables the ability to develop and deploy custom refactoring types and targets

Schema Compare

  • Now supports comparing Projects, Databases or dbschema files in any combination. For example, Project to Project, which has not been possible until now.
  • Object Type Filtering
  • Additional ignore filtering options

T-SQL Static Code Analysis

  • Including the ability to develop and deploy custom rules

Dependency Viewer

  • View the dependency relationship between objects in your schema

Unit testing

  • Supports execution with other ADO.NET providers

Data Generation

  • Design-time enhancements
    • Smaller .dgen file
    • Support for undo/redo
    • Foreign key replacement
    • Separation of population status into new display window
  • Runtime enhancements
    • By default uses SqlBulkCopy to populate target tables
    • Capability to register different outputs for generated data – i.e. generate to Excel or to file so you can use BCP to load
    • By registering a custom output we have the capability to execute scripts at different points during data generation (i.e. before start/after completion or before/after a table

Extensibility

  • Data Generators
  • Statistical Data Distribution
  • Test Conditions
  • Static Code Analysis Rules
  • Refactoring Types
  • Refactoring Target

Windows Speech Recognition Macros

Brief Description

Technical Preview 2
Windows Speech Recognition Macros extends the speech recognition capabilities in Windows Vista. Users can create powerful macros that are triggered by voice command to interact with applications.

Overview

The Windows Speech Recognition Macros tool – or WSR Macros for short – extends the usefulness of the speech recognition capabilities in Windows Vista. Users can create powerful macros that are triggered by spoken commands which can perform a series of tasks from as simple as inserting your mailing address to as complex as providing a completely different speech interaction with applications.
While we have tried to make it easy to use, this release of WSR Macros is a technical preview of technology we are planning to release in the future. Not all the features we have planned are included, and some are incomplete. Users are cautioned to treat this release as “pre-beta.” While creating simple macros is very straightforward, the creation and editing of more complex macro files is best suited for advanced users. We welcome your feedback on how we can improve WSR Macros to best suit your needs.
