Windows 8 Server For The Cloud, Previewed [zdnet.co.uk]
The developer release, unveiled on Wednesday at Microsoft's Build conference in Los Angeles, is pre-beta software intended for developers and independent software vendors. The cloud-focused final release will help companies create a dynamic and scalable infrastructure with self-service tools, while tackling issues such as virtual machine sprawl, according to the software maker.

Windows 8 Server is Microsoft's response to "an interesting period of server innovation, where cloud is a tectonic shift reshaping technology and the industry", said Bill Laing, head of the company's server and cloud division.
