INTRODUCTION Our Product Focus for the next two weeks is Microsoft Windows Server 2012. Microsoft’s Server platform is the world’s most popular server operating system, holding an impressive 73% marketshare. Since introducing Active Directory with Windows Server 2000, Microsoft’s server product line has seen incredible growth. With the release of Windows Server 2012, Microsoft sought to integrate cloud readiness into the product. It’s job was no longer to merely introduce incremental updates to standard features such as domain management, group policy, and user / group administration. Rather, it was designed from the ground up to serve as the backbone for other cloud integrated server products like System Center, Hyper-V, and Microsoft Azure.
