2 Agenda Windows Networking: from Windows Vista to Windows 7 Networking with Windows Vista Information Worker’s World Changing DirectAccess TM Video BranchCache TM Video Closing, Evaluations, Prize Drawing

3 Windows Vista Networking Windows Vista has been the most significant investment in networking since Windows 95 Easier Connectivity Wireless Reliability Rich End-to-End Security Server & Domain Isolation - IPSec Greater Manageability Policy-based Quality of Service (eQoS) Scalable Architecture Network Auto-tuning & IPv6 Focus on Return On Investment, Greater Productivity

4 Windows Vista Networking – Results “Just upgrading client PCs to Microsoft’s Windows Vista can yield throughput and time-to-completion improvements of up to 3X over Windows XP. Complete migration of servers to Windows Server 2008 can yield throughput and time-to-completion improvements of up to 4X over Windows XP/Windows Server 2003.” Enhanced Network Performance with Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 By Tolly Group


6 Situation Today Remote Access for Mobile Workers Corporate network boundary includes managed assets no matter where they are on the Internet Easy to service mobile PCs and distribute updates and polices New network paradigm increases mobile user productivity by providing same experience inside & outside the office Challenging for IT to manage, update, patch mobile PCs while disconnected from company network Difficult for users to access corporate resources from outside the office HomeOfficeHomeOffice DirectAccess Windows 7 Solution

7 DirectAccess Server Compliant Client IPsec/IPv 6 Data Center and Business Critical Resources Internet Intranet User Enterprise Network Compliant Network Intranet User IPsec/IPv 6 Assume the underlying network is always insecure Redefine enterprise network edge to insulate the datacenter and business critical resources Tunnel over IPv4 UDP, TLS, etc. DirectAccess Technical Details NAP / NPS Servers

8 DirectAccess Deployment Determine your strategy Be ready to monitor IPv6 traffic Choose an Access Model: Full Intranet Access vs. Selected Server Access? Assess deployment scale Get your infrastructure ready Windows 7 clients Windows Server 2008 R2 DirectAccess Server DC, DNS Server, Active Directory, PKI, Application Servers, etc. During deployment Use DirectAccess configuration wizard to setup DirectAccess Server and generate policies for clients, application servers, and DC/DNS Customize policies as needed Get ready step by step

9 IT Pro Benefits Improved manageability of remote users IT simplification and cost reduction Consistent security for all access scenarios Seamless & secure access to corporate resources Consistent connectivity experience in / out office Combined with other Windows 7 features enhances the end to end IW experience DirectAccess Benefits End User Benefits

10 DirectAccess

11 Situation Today Windows 7 Solution Branch Office Enhancements Application and data access over WAN is slow in branch offices Slow connections hurt user productivity Improving network performance is expensive and difficult to implement BranchCache ™ SMB Enhancements Improve user productivity Reduce network bandwidth utilization 1.Transparent Caching 2.Improved Office Experience 3.Offline Files Enhancements

12 Windows 7 Solution BranchCache™ Authenticates current state of data and access rights of the user against the server Supports commonly used protocols: HTTP(S), SMB Support network security protocols (SSL, IPsec) Requires Windows Server 2008 R2 in the data center and hosted cache Caches content downloaded from file and Web servers Users in the branch can quickly open files stored in the cache Frees up network bandwidth for other uses Technical Details

13 IIS File Server Group Policy Management Install the optional “Windows BranchCache” component on a Windows 2008 R2 web or file server Use Group Policy to enable Windows BranchCache on Windows 7 clients HostedCache Optionally, install a hosted cache in your branch. Configure clients to use it with Group Policy BranchCache Deployment

14 BranchCache Benefits IT Pro Benefits Optimize network utilization: HTTP and HTTPS-based intranet traffic SMB (and signed SMB) shares on the read path Support network security protocols (SSL, IPsec) Reduce the cost of managing WAN Improve application responsiveness and reduce file transfer wait time Combined with other SMB offerings enhance the user experience on remote shares End User Benefits
