Building on the news that a release preview of Windows Embedded 8 Standard is available, we thought it was time to take a closer look at image creation. We’ve asked Dave Massy, Senior Program Manager on Windows Embedded Standard, to share some helpful guidelines on and efficient use of templates and Application Support Modules.
Windows Embedded 8 Standard provides two flexible ways to define parts of the system you are building for reuse from the toolkit. This allows you to build operating system (OS) images more efficiently as you can define an aspect of the image you are building and make it available to use again and share with others.
I wanted to cover Templates and Application Support Modules that are provided with Windows Embedded 8 Standard and how you can include your own and build a library of reusable steps for building an operating system image.

Simplicity. Why do we, in general, get so hung up on getting stuff done?
There are a few things that I wish everyone could experience. One of them is driving on the autobahn in a Porsche 911 at over 200km/hour (or, if you are like my colleague Dave Kelley, an Audi R8). If that wish came true, then I would not be stuck behind slow drivers in the fast lane. Just because the speed limit “suggests” 65 or 75 does not mean I want to be behind you wishing you would stop hogging the far-left passing lane. (The key word is PASSING, and I mean pass within the next hundred feet, NOT miles; pass and move over, don’t police me. Thus, I love the autobahn. Germans know how to drive.)
Another wish is for all people in the software world to experience living and succeeding at a product company startup.

Today’s hospitals use technology along every point of the care continuum, from admission and discharge to billing and record keeping. However challenges remain when clinicians and staff access patient records across multiple points, and often on different equipment. Health IT leaders must safeguard patient data not only on desktop computers, but on hand-held devices, remote monitoring equipment, patient and physician portals, and more.
New solutions are available for meeting the challenges of managing the integration of different technologies in a healthcare environment, and/or juggling them simultaneously to boost physician access even while ensuring data security. My Americas team, in partnership with HP and HealthCast, will offer a look at some of those solutions in a special healthcare webinar hosted by Fierce Markets.
Today, Bowei Xu brings us part two of his blog on Windows 8’s new Storage Spaces feature.
In the example below, I will show you how to create a Parity Virtual Disk out of a Storage Pool that has four physical disks, one of which is used as a “Hot Spare” disk. The hot-spare disk will come online automatically (it took about 5 to 8 minutes in my test below) in the event of a disk failure happening elsewhere in the pool. This allows for rapid recovery from disk failure, ensuring all data is protected as appropriate. “Repair-VirtualDisk” cmdlet can also be used to trigger the repair process immediately. I show both in the example below.
