Your Guide to the Latest Windows Server Product Information
Have you heard the great buzz about Windows Server 2008 R2? If you’re eager to find out how to migrate your existing servers to this new platform, check out the Windows Server TechCenter Migration Portal for Windows Server 2008 R2. This one-stop-shop for existing and new migration resources can help you jump start your migration process.
On the Migration Portal, you’ll see the Server Migration solution for Windows Server 2008 R2.
By using migration guides linked from this portal -- and where appropriate, Windows Server Migration Tools -- to migrate roles, operating system settings and data, you can simplify deployment of new Windows Server 2008 R2 servers (including those that are running the Server Core installation option of Windows Server 2008 R2, and virtual servers), reduce migration downtime, increase accuracy of the migration process, and help eliminate conflicts that could otherwise occur during the migration process.
The Windows Server Migration Tools, and most migration guides, support cross-architecture migrations (x86-based to x64-based computing platforms), migrations between physical and virtual environments, and migrations between both the full and Server Core installation options of the Windows Server operating system, where available.
