Benefits and Features of Windows Server 2012 Datacenter Edition

Improvements in Windows Server 2012 Datacenter Edition

Windows Server 2012 Datacenter Edition goes hand in hand with the release of Windows 8. For those already familiar with Windows 8 will have little difficulty in navigating the same Metro UI that is synonymous with the latest Windows.

Metro UI has proved successful for a wide range of users, but Microsoft endorses the use of the new and improved PowerShell and Server Manager (accessed through Remote Server Administration Tools) rather than making use of the GUI. The logic behind this is the same approach that has proved successful in earlier versions of Windows Server. This improves speed, reliability and removes certain security risks associated with excessive code.

With Windows Server 2012 Datacenter Edition comes the greatest of improvements to virtualisation – notably Microsoft’s Hyper-V and the command line tool, PowerShell.

Although the Windows Server 2012 Standard Edition and Datacenter Edition are almost identical in many ways, their licenses differ. While the Standard Edition is limited to two virtual instances, the Datacenter Edition is unlimited. Both licenses are based per x2 processors however.

The Datacenter Edition is supplied with server licenses as standard with secondary licenses for Client Access Licenses (CALs). These CALs are suited for Active Directory Rights Management and Remote Desktop Services.
