Windows Server Management Console

Recently, while working on a demo about backup, I realized that in management studio, now there is a new option in the backup screen called a URL. This feature is called as “backup to URL”.

I checked earlier version of SSMS and found that this was not there in the SQL 2012 management studio. There the options were “disk” and “tape” in SSMS 2012.

As soon as the URL is selected, it would ask for various options about backup destination in Azure.

Let’s go step by step and take a database backup to Microsoft Azure Blob storage.

To use this feature, you need to have is a Microsoft Azure account. If you do not have a Windows Azure account, visit Windows Azure 3-Month free trial. After logging it to the portal, I have created a “storage” called sqlauthority.

Under sqlauthority, I have created a container called “backup”. This container was created as “Public Blob”.

The advantages of a print server are simple

Centralized management and easier configuration on client machines.
Under windows server 200x a print server provides a centralized management console to manage all of your printers in an organization, to allow security (ie who can delete jobs) and ease of installation on a variety of client machines including multiple operating systems. (when you setup printers on a print server you can assign multiple o/s installs to make it easy to setup printer on different operating system clients)
If you are in a small environment, and do not have more than a couple printers, or more than a few client machines printing to the printers, the use of a print server is overkill

If you dont know how to figure that out, I really wonder why you think you're qualified to upgrade the server to begin with... but: Go to Sever Management Console and there you can see how many CALs are showing under Licensing.
You need to purchase new server CALs for Windows Server 2008 (or 2008 R2) unless you have Software Assurance as part of an agreement with Microsoft. If you have Software Assurance, speak with your agent.

Look beyond APM to unified performance monitoring  — TechTarget
ORLANDO, Fla. -- The lack of interoperability among traditional performance monitoring tools means data centers must use -- and pay for -- multiple tools. But movement toward unified performance monitoring could change all that.
