Windows Server 8 is the official codename for Microsoft’s next generation server operating system and successor to the company’s Windows Server 7 OS. Currently available for evaluation as a release candidate download, Windows Server 8 is expected to be officially released later in 2012 in conjunction with the Windows 8 consumer edition. Microsoft also recently reported that the new server OS will carry the official name of Windows Server 2012.
