As we move into 2013, it is with increasing certainty we embrace the notion that “the Cloud” is the next logical step in the evolutionary IT process. We have moved safely past the dreaded “betamax” and “minidisc” phase and must now look forward and prepare for an increasingly cloud-y future.
In August 2012, Microsoft released Windows Server 2012, dubbed the first “cloud ready” server operating system. The system was designed so that whether you were a small business setting up a single server or a major organisation architecting a new datacenter environment, Windows Server 2012 would allow you to cloud-optimize your IT.
In this brave new world increasingly dominated by mass virtualization and cloud ready server operating systems, the requirement for a high speed, highly available network has never been more important. Windows Server 2012 was designed to help you achieve this. In previous versions Windows Server made the teaming of Network Interface Cards (NICs) a notoriously tricky and time consuming process, hours would be spent downloading third-party drivers and tinkering with technical configurations for certain NICs
Not so in Windows Server 2012, follow our Windows Server 2012 How-to guide for teaming NIC’s to create and maintain a high speed, highly available network.
