About Microsoft Windows Server 2012

Microsoft has a long history of innovation, and Microsoft Windows Server 2012 represents a major shift of networking focus to a cloud-based solution. Windows Server 2012 has the flexibility to power a single server for a small business or an entire cloud-based enterprise solution and any unique solution in between.

Microsoft Windows Server 2012 is an easy-to-manage server that allows businesses to be run in public or private cloud environments. It is scalable, efficient, reliable, and offers flexible access from virtually any device, anywhere.

How does Windows Server 2012 address your business needs?

Moving to the Cloud

Microsoft Windows Server 2012 with Hyper-V makes it easier and more cost-effective to enter the cloud space than ever and continue to operate there. Properly trained staff can expect this transition to occur more cleanly and at a lower cost.

Virtualization

It's simple, businesses save money with virtulaization - Windows Server 2012 with Hyper-V has been shown to be dramatically less expensive to start and maintain than tradition solutions. Windows Server can reduce workload of your staff by simplifying server processes, letting you do more with less and making you even more valuable to your organization.

Scalability

Are you tired of continually upgrading or purchasing more capacity than it turns out you needed? Windows Server 2012 helps you deal with the continuing issue of scalability. Windows Server 2012 is broad, scalable, and elastic - ready to meet your dynamic storage needs.

Paired with Hyper-V, Windows Server 2012 also allows for simple expansion and contraction of cloud services, as needs expand and contract based on seasonal and other adjustments. Costs of unused server capability, as well as costs to scale up and down repeatedly are wasted costs. Being able to simply scale up or down - either in the cloud or not - would save your organization money and position you for success.

BYOD - Bring Your Own Device

Employees need increased access to data remotely or from multiple devices, known as BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). In Windows Server 2012, centralized desktops and remote access solutions have been made easier to deploy and to manage, providing an easier way to give users more secure access to corporate infrastructure.

BYOD has quickly become the norm. Remote workers and top executives want to be able to have secure access to information from wherever they are, exactly when they need it and on any device. Windows Server 2012 is designed to support this requirement.

The Solution? Windows Server 2012 Training

With Windows Server 2012 training, you will be positioned to provide optimal solutions to these pressing demands.
