Windows Server is going through an important transformation that’s been 10 years in the making. Nano Server is a deep rethink of the server architecture. The result is a new, lean cloud fabric host and application development platform that’s a mere 5% of the size of Server Core. Its small size reduces security attack risks. And its redesign means fewer, quicker reboots.

Get a first look at Nano Server (including why it’s designed the way it is) in the fast and fun Ignite session you can watch here: Nano Server: The Future of Windows Server Starts Now—complete with demos, some (preliminary) results, and improvements. You’ll even get some action items to put on your to-do list. Presented by Jeffrey Snover, Distinguished Engineer, and Andrew Mason, Principal Program Manager.

Keep in mind that many other 2015 Microsoft Ignite conference sessions with details and demos are available online for you to view on your schedule right here.
