Review: Microsoft targets virtualisation with Windows 8/Windows Server 2012 combo

24 October 2012
  • Summary: What the Windows 2012 Server editions provide is a compelling reason to stick with Windows infrastructure, as many of the advances represent integration of management components that have no competitive parallels. Microsoft wants to use Windows Server 2012 as the crux of many happy cloud deployments, but still doesn't have the lightweight, mindlessly flexible texture of Linux.

Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Standard and Datacentre

TechRadar UK
18 October 2012
  • Excerpt: The RTM of Windows Server 2012 took a little longer to become available than the RTM of Windows 8 but it was worth waiting for. This is a polished update of a definitive release of Windows Server that has improvements and new features for companies from small to large.

Windows Server 2012 RC review

12 October 2012
  • Summary: This is a major re-work of the Windows server platform designed to make it more scalable, resilient and flexible. It will thus be of most interest to large enterprises intending to go build private clouds, although those with more modest needs will find value in features such as storage pooling and the revamped hypervisor.
  • Pros: Server Manager tool; Hyper-V 3.0; VM failover; SMB 3 file sharing; Resilient File System; Storage spaces, pooling and thin provisioning
  • Cons: Metro user interface a major upheaval; some features only available if Windows Server 2012 is widely deployed by an organisation

REVIEW: Microsoft Windows Server 2012

17 July 2012
  • Summary: With an eye on current trends, Microsoft is marketing its next generation server operating system, Windows Server 2012 , as a building block for private and hybrid clouds rather than purely as a platform for in-house applications. It’s also looking to build its share of the virtualisation market with a much enhanced and scalable third release of the Hyper-V hypervisor. Oh, and yes, it’s got the same controversial Metro interface as Windows 8.
