The age of the internet and the expansion of Cloud Computing has largely eradicated the existence of single server companies. The life of a Windows Server Admin is not so simple any more, as depicted by our previous graphic,  a majority of companies now operate multiple versions of Server OS systems simultaneously.  Having to check the performance and monitor for issues across multiple servers can be both tricky and time consuming. Not to mention remoting into 10′s of Servers being both inefficient and annoying.

Those lucky enough to be using Windows Server 2012, dubbed the ‘Cloud OS’, will no longer have this issue. The latest Server OS comes retrofitted with a powerful new function as part of the ‘Server Manager’ interface.

Admins using this Server OS can get a multi-server view of the environment, not only that they can check performance and troubleshoot issues on the fly from a central location. In the following graphic, Windows Server Instructor Ed Baker takes you through the powerful new feature and teaches you exactly how to Manage Multiple Servers in Windows Server 2012.
