Microsoft at its last week's Worldwide Partner Conference in Los Angeles talked about the Windows Server 8. Following the WPC11, HP, recently has upgraded the technical specifications of one of it's entry level servers HP ProLiant ML110 G7 and has included Windows 8 Server as one of the supported operating system.
Here's a screensot of the HP ProLiant ML110 G7 specifications:
Windows 8 would have more than 100 new features including the next version of Hyper-V Hypervisor and support for more than 16 virtual processors per machine.
There is no other mention of Windows 8 in the specifications which leaves much to be desired in terms of what new functionality Windows 8 will bring to the market.
We will be having more on Windows 8 platform during Microsoft's upcoming developers conference BUILD conference which will held in September.
