Windows Server 2012 SupportWindows Server 2012 includes over 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 support, availability and disaster recovery, application development, and manageability. Licensing for Windows Server 2012 has been simplified, with the only functional difference between the two primary versions is that the Standard Edition supports two virtual instances and the Datacenter supports unlimited ones.

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

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.

Windows Server 2012 Cloud Consulting

Windows Server 2012 Supports Private, Public, and Hybrid Cloud Environments

Cloud Optimized
Cloud computing is becoming the new reality for information technology because it enables ultra-efficient utilization of IT resources through the dynamic reallocation of available processing power, memory, and storage while sharing the substantial costs associated with creating and maintaining high-performance and high-availability datacenters. Windows Server 2012 can support private or public clouds or hybrid environments by allowing IT managers to pool computing resources seamlessly and securely across physical boundaries.

New and enhanced features of Windows Server 2012 that facilitate cloud-based infrastructure include:

  • Multitenancy Support
  • Hyper-V Network
  • Live Migration Across
  • Self-service Provisioning
  • Resource Metering
  • Active Directory Doman Services (AD DS)
Virtualization Enhancements
Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V offers improvements that benefit both cloud-based and local datacenters. Key enhancements impact resource consolidation, uptime and recoverability, expandability and performance. New or improved Hyper-V features include:
  • Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE)
  • VHDX Virtual Hard Disk Format
  • Shared Nothing Live Migration
  • Live Storage Migration
  • Live Merge
  • Dynamic Memory
  • Smart Paging
Additional Enhancements
Windows Server 2012 has also been enhanced with features that improve scalability and speed, identity and security, Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) support, availability and disaster recovery, development, and manageability. New features in these areas include Storage Spaces to reduce disk storage costs, Federated Identity for centralized authentication across cloud-based and on-premises environments, support for rich graphics on smart phones and tablets, Active-Active File Server Clusters for transparent failover across server clusters, cloud-aware languages and application development tools, and the new Server Manager for centralizing the management of multiple servers.
