Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Standard and Datacentre
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.
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.
Excerpt: Microsoft bietet die Windows 8 Developer Preview nicht nur für Clients an, sondern auch in einer Server-Variante. Windows 8 Server soll für Cloud, Virtualisierung, Networking, Storage und Verwaltung optimiert sein. Wir haben die Neuerungen des Windows Server 2008 R2-Nachfolgers näher untersucht.
