Microsoft said Wednesday Windows Server 2012 has hit the release-to-manufacturing stage of development and that it will be generally available on September 4.
All code is complete and being delivered to hardware and software partners this week, Windows Server lead architect Jeffrey Snover said in a blog post on the company’s website.
“It feels great to ship software that so squarely addresses customer objectives, both in the here and now and in the future,” Snover wrote.
The server product reached release candidate, its last major milestone, on June 1. Windows Server 2012 will be generally available nearly two full months ahead of its client sibling, Windows 8, which also hit the RTM milestone Wednesday.
