New Features of Windows Server 2012
Windows Server 2012 offers major innovations that have an impact on almost every aspect of information technology. Combined with System Center 2012 and with Windows 8, Windows 2012 redefines the datacenter for any size organization. Most of the most significant improvements in Windows Server 2012 focus on optimizing cloud functionality and performance. Because cloud computing depends on large-scale virtualization, many of the enhancements offered by Windows Server 2012 center around advances in Microsoft's Hyper-V technology.
