Windows Server 2012 Benefits
Windows Server 2012 brings Microsoft’s experience building and operating public clouds to customers running the Windows Server platform. It can help you deliver and manage a cost-effective IT infrastructure–both physical and virtual. It provides a modern, open application platform for both today’s software applications and tomorrow’s hybrid cloud solutions. And it helps you provide users with access from almost anywhere and any device, giving them the flexibility to stay productive while on the go.
Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V improves both scalability and performance. It helps you deliver a fully-isolated, multitenant environment that includes tools to help guarantee SLAs, enable chargebacks, and support self-service scenarios. With Windows Server 2012 Datacenter you can continually increase your VM density without additional licensing costs for virtualizing infrastructure and applications.
With Hyper-V Network Virtualization, you can also virtualize your networks and enable software-defined networking. This provides the flexibility to move networks freely within your datacenter or to a hosting provider without reconfiguration. It also provides network isolation among the VMs running on different virtual networks, enabling multitenant environments.
Windows Server 2012 provides new storage scenarios which offer high availability on industry-standard server hardware. Make the most of your storage by thin-provisioning and trimming VM storage, pooling diverse storage resources, and abstracting them for flexible usage throughout your environment. Use file servers as file-based network storage for application data—now with the high levels of performance and reliability those scenarios require.
Modern App Platform
Windows Server 2012 is a broad, scalable, and elastic server platform that gives you the flexibility to build, deploy, and manage applications and websites on-premises, in the cloud, or in a hybrid environment, using a consistent set of tools and frameworks.
Programming consistency and common development tools between Windows Server 2012 and Windows Azure can help ease the transition to the cloud, while enabling hybrid applications across on-premises, service provider, and Windows Azure clouds.
Windows Server 2012 provides frameworks, services, and tools to help increase scalability and elasticity for applications that support multitenancy, and improve website density and efficiency. This both benefits IT professionals in traditional datacenters and also helps service providers to more effectively build, provision, and manage hosting environments.
Windows Server 2012 offers enhanced support for open frameworks, open source applications, and development languages. Web standards, PHP, and node.js are supported, while .NET Framework 4.5 offers features and improvements such as support for asynchronous file operations, web, and networking enhancements.
The modern workstyle is defined by flexibility in how and where users access their data and applications. In Windows Server 2012, centralized desktops and remote access solutions have been made easier to deploy and to manage, providing an easier way to give users more secure access to corporate infrastructure.
Windows Server 2012 enables a personalized, rich user experience from many more devices while adapting to different network conditions quickly and responsively. Remote users can change locations or devices while maintaining an experience close to that of a laptop or PC, enabling them to maintain their productivity.
Windows Server 2012 features intelligent security infrastructure that helps you enhance data security and compliance with granular access to data based on strong identity and device security status. These features also enable flexible and powerful audit rules, which help achieve compliance with applicable regulations
