Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Available On February 22nd


Microsoft today officially handed off the final release (RTM) of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1) to its OEM partners and announced that the Windows 7 SP1 will be made generally available for download on February 22.

On February 16th Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 will be available for MSDN and TechNet Subscribers as well as Microsoft's Volume License customers. On February 22nd, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 will become generally available for everyone to download via the Microsoft Download Center and available on Windows Update.

Two new features in Windows Server SP1, Dynamic Memory and RemoteFX, enable sophisticated desktop virtualization capabilities. These features build on the virtualization functionality already included in the Windows Server operating system.

Dynamic Memory takes Windows Server?s Hyper-V feature to a whole new level. Dynamic Memory lets userws increase virtual machine density with the resources they already have?without sacrificing performance or scalability. In Microsoft's lab testing, with Windows 7 SP1 as the guest operating system in a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) scenario, Microsoft's engineers have seen a 40% increase in density from Windows Server 2008 R2 RTM to SP1. This increase was achieved simply by enabling Dynamic Memory, Microsoft said.

Dynamic Memory also preserves Windows 7 security without compromising density.

In addition, users get immediate benefit from the moment they turn on the virtual machine. There?s no waiting for memory management algorithms to work.

The second new feature, RemoteFX, is a first-to-market technology that Microsoft has demonstrated at multiple events.

RemoteFX is a technology that lets users virtualize the Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) on the server side and deliver rich media and 3D user experiences for VDI. RemoteFX is also enabling new low cost ultra-thin client devices to enter the market. Together, these technologies will drive down the end-point cost and reduce endpoint power consumption to as little as a few watts.

Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 SP1 will Release to Manufacturing (RTM) today. On February 16, both will be available to current Microsoft's customers of the Windows Volume Licensing program, as well as subscribers to Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) and TechNet. On February 22, both will be available to all users through Windows Update and will also come preinstalled on new servers.
