Microsoft Server 2012 – Built from the Cloud Up
|Microsoft Server 2012 – Built From the Cloud Up|
Microsoft’s stated intent for Server 2012 is to “Cloud Optimize Your IT”. While “Built From the Cloud Up” makes a trite catch phrase for advertising purposes, accomplishing that feat poses a daunting task for Mr. Softy.
The potential offered by Server 2012 is impressive on many levels. The flexibility to securely access any app from any platform on most popular devices – all with a rich user experience – should excite even hard-core Microsoft critics. It offers the ability to build infrastructure across premises on an open, scalable, and elastic web and application platform.
Windows Server 2012 builds upon the experience Microsoft gained from constructing and operating public clouds to deliver a cost-effective server platform for your business and your private cloud. If you want the flexibility of a private cloud, implementing solutions in a virtualized environment is not enough. Windows Server 2012 lets you go beyond virtualization to deploy and more securely connect to private clouds in a flexible IT environment that adapts dynamically to changing business needs.
“…securely access any app from any platform on most popular devices – all with a rich user experience.”
With Windows Server 2012, you can manage systems better through software-based policy controls. You can take advantage of tools such as a comprehensive set of the Windows PowerShell command-line interface and scripting language for ubiquitous automation of your server environment. Use of these tools will increase the cost efficiency of your private cloud platform. Windows Server 2012 offers tools to help customers make the transition from on-premises to hosted or hybrid environments, and to continue providing the services and reliability demanded by enterprise, mid-market, as well as small businesses.
Regardless of your organization’s size, there’s an edition of Windows Server 2012 developed for you. Speak with your BEMA engineer to find out which edition is right for your organization.
