13 NEW – Windows Server Essentials Experience Essentials functionalities are enabled via a dedicated server role in Windows Server Standard and Windows Server Datacenter.Familiar and seamless deployment experience that sets up the most fundamental roles for the primary server.Optional unattended deployment and configuration using PowerShell.Windows Server 2012 Essentials provides an end-to-end integrated setup that installs and configures many of the roles and features of Windows Server 2012 according to best practices configuration for small business environments. This provides customers with immediate out-of-the-box value and productivity. However, because Windows Server Essentials 2012 has its own, non-standard server deployment experience, future investment of server deployment for cloud and hosting environments could have been difficult to leverage. Furthermore, Windows Server Essentials 2012 has to be a domain controller which usually rules out the possibility of Windows Server Essentials 2012 to be a second server in an IT environment.In Windows Server 2012 R2, the Windows Server Essentials user experience is integrated as a Windows Server role, referred to as Windows Server Essentials Experience. The server role integration enables the following technical capabilities:- Standard deployment approach with other server roles and features, including offline imaging.- Remote and batch deployment via Server Manager, which is optimized for hosting environment- Support for domain join and deployment on an existing domain controller, which offers more deployment flexibility including 2nd server deployments and branch office deployments.With these changes, more customers will be able to enjoy the benefits of the simplified Windows Server Essentials experience.
