About This Book

Windows Server 2012 is not only the most significant update to the Windows Server operating system in recent years, but it is also all about cloud computing and the underlying technology for building clouds: virtualization.

Many features familiar to administrators of Server 2008 R2 and other legacy Windows Server versions have been updated in one way or another in Windows Server 2012, and this book introduces readers to the new features and capabilities.

There are two especially important concepts to keep in mind while reading this book. First, Server 2012 is all about the deployment, configuration, and management of cloud platforms—whether they are private, hybrid, or public clouds. Second, Server 2012 also centers on integrating workers’ private mobile devices into the corporate network.
