Our company is currently rolling out Active Directory, with Office 365, Lync, Exchange, and Outlook. We don't have AD, as there are over 400+ employees in different offices. Now the question we're facing is if Windows Server 2012 is the best option for us. We know 2008 R2 has a larger knowledge base but we wanted to get opinions from some experts. Thanks!

    I can say that very few of my clients are moving to Server 2012 as it requires some new skills to administer. If you're looking for tried and true that many (most) network admins can hit the ground running with, I'd go with Server 2008 R2.
