Windows Server 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

June 17, 2009

In a recent email, a Microsoft business client of Onsite Computer Services in New Orleans displayed confusion over the next server product from Microsoft. The internal Microsoft development codename for the successor to Windows Server 2008 is Windows Server 7 or Windows 7 Server. Microsoft Server 7 is publically called Windows Server 2008 R2 and is designed to work seamlessly with Windows 7 in a client/server environment.

Windows Server 2008 R2 is the two-year minor release version scheduled to succeed Windows Server 2008 and “integrate[s] the previous major release with the latest service pack, selected feature packs, and new functionality. Microsoft has a two year minor release and a four-year major release sequence for its server products.

A primary design objective of Windows Server 2008 R2 is compatibility with Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, and Windows 7. Microsoft is marketing the new technologies in Server 2008 R2 as designed specifically to operate with Windows 7. Microsoft plans to release Windows 7 / Server 2008 R2 on the same day implying a release date of October 2009 for the dynamic duo.
