There are significant improvements in TCP/IP functionality in Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and Microsoft Windows 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1). This Webcast discusses these improvements. This includes performance improvements targeted at Internet facing servers that have enabled Windows Server 2003 to now support over a million connections over IA64, are saving a premium portal several million dollars a year and enable Windows Server 2003 to send over 7Gbps traffic over trans-atlantic links. We also discuss security improvements that have been made in TCP/IP to enable a Windows 2003 Server to better handle DDOS attacks such as those launched by Blaster and MYDoom viruses. This includes over 3 fold improvement in the ability of TCP/IP to handle syn-attacks, a DDOS commonly used by viruses such as Blaster.
