Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 releases just around the corner.  Are you thinking about deploying these new operating systems to take advantage of new energy efficiency features

Get a head start with Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit 4.0 to help you determine readiness of your machines and accelerate the deployment planning process. Over 690,000 Microsoft customers and partners including Costco Wholesale Corporation, Continental Airlines, and Banque de Luxembourg have already downloaded and used this toolkit to date.


In addition to helping plan your deployment, the MAP toolkit includes a “Power savings calculator” that you can use to quickly obtain comprehensive planning knowledge for migration to energy efficient computing technologies. MAP’s automated inventory and readiness assessment reports generate specific upgrade recommendations for migration to power-saving Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 operating systems. MAP also identifies suitable candidates for virtualization and makes recommendations on how physical servers might be placed in a Microsoft Hyper-V virtualized environment.
