Windows 2012 Unleashed by SAMs
Windows Server 2012 only comes in a 64bit version. This may cause issues with legacy applications.
There are 4 editions of Windows Server 2012: Data Center — Standard — Essentials — Foundation
Server Core vs.GUI: Server Core does not provide you with a graphical envionrment in order to administer a server.
Self Healing NTFS allows the server to automatically fix corruptions on a disk partition.
SMB 3.0 = 10-30 times faster transfer between computers (Server 2012 or Windows 8), XP and such will use SMB 1.0. Reduces “chatter”
Storage Spaces — SAN: Allows you to combine numerous server’s storage into one logical storage unit.
Data Deduplication: Only one copy of Identical files is stored
Hyper V — Microsofts version of Virtualization
Offline Domain Join: Allows you to add a PC to a domain without connecting it to the network.
Drivers: You may have some driver issues with older computers. “Generic” drivers may be installed instead of proprietary ones.
