Windows Server 2012 R2 SupportWindows Server 2012 R2 includes more than 300 new or enhanced features that address critical IT issues such as Cloud readiness, virtualization, scalability and performance, identity and security, Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) support, availability and disaster recovery, application development, and manageability. Windows Server 2012 R2 includes further enhancements in availability, storage versatility and affordability, performance, mobile device support, and ease of management. Licensing for Windows Server 2012 R2 is simpler than in past generations of Windows Server. Microsoft has reduced the high-end product line to two editions, Datacenter and Standard, with identical feature sets. The only functional difference between these two versions is that the Standard Edition supports two virtual instances and the Datacenter Edition supports unlimited virtual instances. The trimmed-down Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials Edition is available for very small businesses (up to 25 users) and a Foundation Edition is reserved for original equipment manufacturers.

Progent's Microsoft-certified consultants can help you assess the business value of Windows Server 2012 R2 for your company, plan and implement pilot and production deployments, optimize your network infrastructure for local, multi-site, Cloud-based, and hybrid environments, train your IT support staff, develop a corporate-wide security strategy, automate network management, assist with application development, and create and test a disaster recovery/business continuity plan.

Important New and Enhanced Features of Windows Server 2012
Windows Server 2012 offers major innovations that impact practically every aspect of information technology. Combined with System Center 2012 and Windows 8.1, Windows 2012 effectively redefines the datacenter for organizations of any size. Many of the most significant improvements in Windows Server 2012 focus on optimizing Cloud functionality and performance. Because Cloud computing depends heavily on large-scale virtualization, many of the enhancements offered by Windows Server 2012 center around advances in Microsoft's Hyper-V 3.0 technology.

One enhancement to Hyper V 3.0 of particular importance to smaller organizations is "shared nothing live migration." This feature makes it possible to move a virtual machine (VM) non-disruptively from a physical host with conventional, direct attached storage to a different physical server with direct-attached storage. Previously, Hyper-V live migration required storage area networks (SANs), which are far more expensive to deploy and manage than ordinary direct-attached storage. The process required for executing a shared nothing live migration can be time consuming because it requires physical storage to be copied, so this feature is best suited for eliminating the planned downtime associated with processes such as scheduled maintenance as opposed to disaster recovery.

Cloud Optimized
Cloud computing is becoming the new reality for information technology because it enables ultra-efficient utilization of IT resources by dynamically reallocating available processing power, memory, and storage while sharing the substantial costs associated with creating and maintaining high-availability datacenters. Windows Server 2012 supports private Clouds, public Clouds, and hybrid on-remise/Cloud-based environments by providing a variety of features that allow network managers to pool computing resources seamlessly and securely across physical boundaries.
