What Is Microsoft Windows Server?

Microsoft Windows Server is an operating system designed for business servers that includes a Windows-level of usability with advanced features that provide more abilities for the main server functions, such as server management, data storage and security, applications, and communication.

What Is the Datacenter Edition?

Microsoft Windows Server is an adaptable operating system that can provide use a number of levels, from basic small business use to more advanced program development and large business server needs.

 Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Datacenter Features

Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Datacenter includes improvements in administration and overall server use, but in particular, it is most useful for the vast expanse in the use of virtualization.

Unlimited virtualization—First and foremost, Datacenter beats all the competition because of its unlimited virtualization. Virtual machines have no limits on physical servers. Compare that to the limited of 2 virtual machines on the physical server in the Standard edition. Not only is virtualization unlimited on the server, it comes with far more advanced virtualization abilities than in previous editions, some of which are described below.

Virtualization available anywhere with your remote desktop—The virtual machines created on your server can be access from anywhere, thanks to your remote desktop. The only limit on access is the use of CALs, or client access licenses, which are required for a device to access the server. Otherwise, a remote device can have the same virtual machine experience as a locally connected device.

Far more cmdlets for more powerful PowerShell—PowerShell makes a major leap forward in its ability to administer the server. With more than 2300 cmdlets now included in PowerShell, administrators can run vastly more commands than ever before.

A redesigned Task Manager for easier use—The new version of Task Manager is easier to glance at to discover what is going on the server. The tabs in the old version are hidden by default, while processes are color coded to show which processes are using the most resources. Application names are listed in a straightforward manner that show important data like, CPU, memory, hard disk, and network utilization.

More Hyper-V features and abilities—Hyper-V comes with new abilities that make that unlimited virtualization more useful for the server. Now, Hyper-V includes network virtualization, multi-tenancy, and other major new features, such as cloud backup to avoid any risk of data loss. In addition, virtual machines have more access to memory. Hyper-V can access up to 64 virtual processors, with each one having access to up to 1 TB of memory.

ReFS: the new Windows Server file system—One of the major improvements on the server is the improvement on the old NTFS file system with the new Resilient File System, or ReFS. This is better for several reasons, including an improvement in data availability, as well as more efficient scaling, and improved data integrity. ReFS improves resiliency to corruption while also being compatible with the application programming interface.

Data Deduplication to save space on your server—With Data Deduplication, your server removes duplications within files and data without harming the integrity of the file, freeing up more space on the server without causing any harm to any files.

System requirements

The following are the minimum system requirements for Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Datacenter 64 Bit OEM Digital License - 2 Processor

  • Processor: 1.4 GHz or faster x64
  • RAM: 512 MB or more
  • Available Disk Space: 32 GB or more (more is required if there is at least 16 GB of RAM in use)

This adaptability is most noticeable in the different editions available with each new version. The Standard edition is designed to provide for the needs of most businesses, but it lacks some of the more advanced features.

The Datacenter edition has much more to offer businesses. It is the most advanced version of Windows Server 2012, and it includes all the most advanced features, as well as the ability to run unlimited virtualization on your processors.

Windows Server 2012 Datacenter must be run in 64-bit on your system.

What Is an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) License?

An Original Equipment Manufacturer License is designed for use for software that will be preinstalled on new devices. With OEM, the advantages are a lower upfront cost on the software, plus the certainty that when it is used it will have been properly installed by experts.

What Are 2 Processors?

This product includes a license for up to 2 processor chips on which Datacenter can run. It can run virtualization on both of those processors. Datacenter is capable of running up to 64 processors, and there is no limit on virtualization on those processors. However, more processor licenses will be required to run more processors.

The physical processors are not included in this purchase.
