Migrating to Windows Server 2012


Anytime Microsoft rolls out a new OS, IT professionals face a learning curve. With Server 2012, there are numerous new features and enhancements that IT pros will want to leverage. Server 2012 has the biggest and the fundamentally most important changes in Windows Server since Windows 2000. The entire management paradigm has completely changed. In addition, virtualization is now completely enterprise ready and essentially equivalent to VMware. Enhancements to the Windows Server storage infrastructure can increase your ROI for Windows Server tremendously with new features like Storage Spaces and Storage Deduplication. There’s a lot to learn and potentially big changes in the way you work with your IT infrastructure. You can see an immediate return on investment if you know how to use the new features.
