Logical, easy to manage

We have Windows Server 2012 Standard Academic License and 5 CALs Box on several computers, enabling us to handle several different issues that might be harder to use with another system. We are currently using AD, DNS, DCHP, NAP, RDP, VPN, MDT, SCCM, SQL, WSUS, print, file and storage. Windows Server is logical and easy to manage. Server Manager Dashboard allows you to have an fast overview of what is installed and an easy way to install more roles. It also gives you a fast way to see if there are any issues.

Well suited for organizations

Windows Server 2012 Standard Academic License and 5 CALs Box is well suited for organizations with over 20 employees. A lot of solutions in the cloud are now competing with the local File Server model that Windows server addresses. If you have less than 20 employees it may not justify the cost of licensing/server hardware and time to maintain windows server to justify the benefits. The Microsoft Licensing model is very confusing and can be costly. If you are a non profit Microsoft has generous price cuts through tech soup. Because windows server is a traditional software model you will need to maintain it and upgrade it after the product is replaced with the next version. If you have over 20 employees and want the fastest possible access to files than Windows server is probably well suited. Many on site software solutions also require running on Windows server as well.
