With Microsoft’s server level operating system teetering on the 5 year mark, Windows Server 2012 is now on the market to take its place. Their flagship enterprise offering has some of the most significant changes to its interface and functionality ever. The new “Modern” style interface coupled with the best virtualization package out there could make for quite an impact on you, the customer. Are all the enhancements worth upgrading? Will the ROI be worth the implementation of such a robust upgrade now? I can think of a million more questions like these that could affect the Windows Server user base.
It really boils down to manageability, potential for more advanced virtualization techniques, and hardware capabilities. Dell is leading the charge to give you hardware that maximizes the benefits of Windows Server 2012. Dell’s 12th generation product line leverages the latest in processor and PCI technology to boost overall system throughout. This is in effort to make the most out Windows Server 2012’s built in virtualization component, Hyper-V 3.0. Combining Windows Server 2012’s features and Dell hardware could allow a small business enough potential ROI to legitimize an upgrade project.
