    Session Summary

    Thursday, June 16, 2005: 10:00 AM Pacific time (Coordinated Universal
    Time -7 hours)

    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.
