IAG SP2 hits RTM - details under the cover interview
A quick review of the top enhancements in SP2:
· Ability to run as a virtual machine on Hyper-V: Using Hyper-V Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 with Hyper-V you can now run IAG virtually! This can help lower costs and basically increases flexibility. Furthermore, customers can chose to virtualize their disaster recovery systems for easier roll-out.
· Enhanced interoperability with non-Windows environments (such as Firefox, Linux and Mac): We’ve added end-point detection and Attachment Wiper capabilities for users coming from non Windows+IE environments, increasing the security and productivity from these platforms.
· New application optimizers for Microsoft Dynamics CRM and OCS Web client: You could always publish these applications generically, but you now have the wizards and configurations in place.
· New Getting Started Wizard: To help walk you through the first steps of setting up your IAG environment
