Windows Server 2012

Hi folks! So unless you live under a rock, you’ve heard that Windows Server 2012 was launched to general customer availability on September 4th, 2012.

Windows Server 2012 promises to be a great new operating system, all though I have to say I’m not a big fan of the UI. Lots of great new features, but seriously Microsoft, why did you have to butcher the UI?

Some of the new features:

  • Hyper-V Replica
  • IP Address Management
  • A new file system (ReFS)
  • IIS 8.0

To name a few. If you haven’t  had a chance to try it out, I urge you to deploy it in a lab and start fooling around with the features to get a feel for it. If you don’t like the new UI you can always install it in Server core mode.
