Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter
Datacenter instances are ideal for organizations with highly virtualized environments, such as data centers and the cloud. This version offers the same features as the Standard Edition with some minor changes.
The biggest difference between the Standard and Data Center editions concerns the licensing of virtual machines. The data center allows an unlimited number of Hyper-V virtual machines.
Data Center instances support up to 16 cores with additional licenses for each additional core. And every customer accessing the Data Center instance also needs to have a CAL.
Windows Server 2012 R2 provides a wide range of new and enhanced features and capabilities spanning server virtualization, storage, software-defined networking, server management, and automation, web, and application platform, access and information protection, virtual desktop infrastructure, and more.
At the heart of Microsoft’s Cloud OS, Windows Server helps customers transform the datacenter, taking advantage of technical advances and new hybrid cloud capabilities to increase resilience, simplify management, reduce cost, and speed delivery of services to the business.
Windows Server 2012 R2 is a proven, enterprise-class cloud and datacenter platform that can scale to run your largest workloads while enabling robust recovery options to protect against service outages. It helps accelerate time to value by simplifying your underlying infrastructure and allowing you to reduce costs by taking advantage of industry-standard hardware. Windows Server 2012 R2 helps you build, deploy and scale applications and websites quickly, and gives you the flexibility to move workloads between on-premises environments and the cloud. It enables you to provide flexible, remote access to corporate resources while managing identities across your datacenter and federated into the cloud, and it helps you protect critical business information.
Data deduplication finds and removes duplication within data on a volume while ensuring that the data remains correct and complete. This makes it possible to store more file data in less space on the volume. For Windows Server 2012 R2, several parameters and error codes were activated, and the MSFT_DedupFileMetadata class was added.
Software Inventory Logging
New! Software Inventory Logging collects licensing data about software installed on a Windows Server and provides remote access to the data so it can be aggregated easily by a datacenter.
iSCSI Target Server
The iSCSI Target Server API provides Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) providers for managing the Microsoft iSCSI Target Server, such as creating virtual disks, and for presenting them to the client. Several new features were added for Windows Server 2012 R2.
Mobile Device Management Registration
New! An industry trend has been developing in which employees connect their mobile computing devices to the corporate network and resources (either on-premise or through the cloud) to perform workplace tasks. This trend requires support for easy configuration of the network and resources, such that employees can register personal devices with the company for work-related purposes. Applications and technology to support easy configuration must also enable IT, professionals, to manage the risk associated with having uncontrolled devices connected to the corporate network. The Mobile Device Management (MDM) registration enrolls a device into a management service.
Windows PowerShell is a task-based command-line shell and scripting language designed especially for system administration. New in Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows PowerShell v4 supports Desired State Configuration, which is a new management platform in Windows PowerShell that enables deploying and managing configuration data for software services and managing the environment in which these services run.
