1. Windows Server 2012: Overview > Introducing Windows Server 2012

Introducing Windows Server 2012

The purpose of this book is to introduce and familiarize system administrators, or anyone who needs to get up and running with Windows Server 2012, with the platform’s major new features and improvements and how to implement them. First, I’ll offer a little background on the evolution of Microsoft’s newest server operating system.

Three years after the launch of Windows Server 2008 R2, Microsoft unveiled Windows Server 2012, its latest server operating system. Server 2012 is the most significant server release since the update from Windows Server NT 3.51 to NT 4.0, which introduced the modern graphical interface to Windows Server.

Server 2012 is just as significant because, arguably, for the first time in a Windows Server release, it represents a server product based on the needs and wants of consumers rather than solely on the needs of the enterprise.
