Windows Server 2012 R2 helps you build, deploy and scale applications and web sites quickly, and with more flexibility than ever before.
Simple and cost-effective
Windows Server 2012 R2 captures the experience Microsoft has gained from building public clouds to deliver a cost-effective server platform. Windows Server 2012 R2 also gives you resilient, multi-tenant-aware storage and networking capabilities for a wide range of workloads. It delivers these capabilities at a fraction of the cost of other solutions, through the use of low-cost, industry-standard hardware. With automation of a broad set of management tasks built-in, Windows Server 2012 R2 simplifies the deployment of major workloads and increases operational efficiencies.
Windows Server 2012 R2 makes it easier to deploy a virtual desktop infrastructure, and can lower storage costs significantly by supporting a broad range of storage options and VHD de-duplication. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure in Windows Server 2012 R2 makes it possible for users to access IT from virtually anywhere, providing them a rich Windows experience while ensuring enhanced data security and compliance. Windows Server 2012 R2 enables you to provide access to corporate resources and helps protect critical business information.
Enhanced features allow you to take advantage of even better performance and more efficient capacity utilization in your datacenter, helping you increase the agility of your business. Windows Server 2012 R2 offers a proven, enterprise-class virtualization and cloud platform that can scale to continuously run your largest workloads while enabling robust recovery options to protect against service outages.
In concert with Windows Azure VM and System Center 2012 R2, it unlocks improved application portability between on-premises environments and public and service provider clouds, increasing flexibility and elasticity of your IT services:
System Center 2012 R2
An integrated platform that provides a common management experience across private, hosted, and public clouds
An enterprise-class platform that forms the foundation for building cloud solutions
A cloud platform for building, deploying and managing applications hosted on a global network of Microsoft-managed data centers
Hyper-V virtualization represents the foundation of Microsoft’s vision for the cloud operating system.
Networking is the underlying glue that holds your infrastructure together, makes possible the delivery of services, makes remote management a reality, and more. Networking improvements introduced previously in Windows Server 2012 included the following: Dynamic VMQ, Receive Side Scaling, Windows NIC Teaming, Quality of Service enhancements, Data Center Bridging, etc.
Active Directory (AD) is the core identity and access control technology used for the IT infrastructure of most businesses today.
Active Directory on the Windows Server platform collectively consists of the following server roles:
AD Domain Services
Lightweight Directory Services
Rights Management Services
Failover Clustering, a key feature of the Windows Server platform, is designed to do just that by providing high availability and scalability to many types of server workloads including Hyper-V hosts, file servers, and different server applications such as Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Exchange Server that can run on both physical servers and virtual machines.
Group Policy is the key technology they utilize to lock down their environments. Composed of thousands of different policy settings and dozens of categories of preference items, a thorough knowledge of what Group Policy can do and how to configure, optimize and maintain its operations is an essential part of the administrator’s job.

If you loved the idea of having copies of your work up there on cloud safe and secure with possibly unlimited memory, stick with Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter - 2 processors. As part of the simplification and extension of high availability, local continuous replication bit the dust. Microsoft's answer: Go get another server instead. Not really simple but usefull software, still using it today..
The changes inMicrosoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter - 2 processorsare less radical. At least on the surface. The management console will look broadly familiar, and the same server roles exist. That said, there are some big changes underneath, once again aimed mainly at improving scalability and availability. In Windows Server 2010, high availability was based on Windows failover clustering, which was complex and expensive.
Windows Server continues to make high-availability simple by creating DAGs, multiple servers cooperating to make a set of Exchange mailboxes highly available through continuous replication and high-availability failover. It's not a simple feature to roll out, but it's a lot simpler than it used to be and doesn't take a PhD in Exchange to use. Easy to use software delivered quickly by my choice software and we are using it every day.
