Windows Server 2008 R2 migration checklist for SMBs

Data centers that are still running Windows Server 2003 or Windows 2008 should look to migrate at least some legacy servers to Windows 2008 R2 in order to take advantage of its greatly expanded manageability options. And as organizations move existing servers to new hardware, they also need to take a close look at consolidation and virtualization as a way to free up space in the data center. This handbook highlights key considerations -- taking an inventory of server roles, ensuring application compatibility, creating a migration target plan, and selecting the correct edition of Windows -- to make your Win2008 R2 migration a success.
