1. Windows Server 2012: Overview > New Capabilities and Updated Features

New Capabilities and Updated Features

Here’s a quick, at-a-glance overview of some of those new features and enhancements.

Installation and Interface

Installation options for Server 2012 carry over from Server 2008 R2. As with Server 2008 R2, Server 2012 installs in two primary ways: Server Core or Server with a GUI (graphical user interface).

Server Core installation is the default option and reduces the amount of system resources needed to run a GUI install, optimizing server performance. A Server Core install reduces the amount of disk space needed as well as the servicing requirements and the server’s potential attack surface.

Server with a GUI installation is the same as the Full Installation option in Server 2008 R2. The full graphical interface of Server 2012 is loaded, including the new Windows 8–like, modern UI–style interface and all the graphical tools needed to manage the server.
