Windows Server 8 Beta now available for download
By Tim Conneally


In addition to the Consumer Preview of Windows 8, and the betas of Visual Studio 11 and the .NET 4.5 framework, Microsoft on Wednesday also released the beta of Windows Server 8.

With this version of its popular server software, Microsoft is concentrating on a few key areas: multitenant virtualization, simplified multi-server architecture, cloud management of sites and applications, and simplified, cross-platform access providing "the full Windows experience anywhere"

The upgrade paths from Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 are both supported, and the minimum system requirements are: a 1.4 GHz 64-bit processor, 512MB of RAM, and 32 GB of storage.
