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.
