Transcript of New Features in Windows Server 2012

www.firebrandtraining.co.uk Windows Server 2012 - New Features Your fastest way to learn. Guaranteed. Windows Server 2012 has some great new features. The new operating system is ready to move our networks towards the private cloud, while still giving us the option to integrate the new features of Windows Server 2012 into our traditional Data Centres. It is almost impossible to list all the new features of Windows Server 2012. But some of the most exciting are the new and enhanced features of Hyper-V, and File and Storage management Intro Here are just a few updates to whet your appetite: Hyper-V Hyper-V Replicas This allows you to replicate virtual machines between storage systems, Clusters, and Data Centres to provide business continuity Storage Migration We can now move the virtual hard disks used by a virtual machine to different physical storage, while the virtual machine remains running Storage on SMB2 file shares Hyper-V now supports the use of SMB2 file shares as the storage location for your virtual machines Virtual Machine Snapshots Although available in Windows 2008 we can now delete a snapshot, and make the disk space it used available for re-use straight away. Without having to shut down the virtual machine first. Another area that has been massively overhauled is File and Storage Services. This includes: Improved File and Storage Services Data De-duplication This allows us to save disk space by storing a single copy of identical data on the volume Storage Spaces and Storage Pools These allow you to group industry-standard disks into one or more storage pools. You can then create virtual disks known as storage spaces. More disks can be added to your storage pool, to make that space available without impacting on users.

Instead of managing each disk individually, you add physical disks to one or more pools and create virtual disks from the available capacity. Virtual disks that you create can also be thinly provisioned so if a developer asks for 1TB of space, but will only be initially consuming 200MB, you can create a thin disk that will only use space based on the size of files saved there iSCSI Target Server With the new iSCSI target server feature, our server can offer block storage to other servers and applications on the network using the iSCSI standard Two more areas which have been improved with new features or enhancements to existing ones: Finally... Domain Controller Cloning With AD DS in Windows Server 2012 we can easily deploy additional Domain controllers by Cloning an existing Virtual Domain Controller. This involves creating a copy, and authorising the source domain controller to be cloned in AD DS. Cloning reduces the number of steps and time involved by eliminating repetitive deployment tasks. Server Core One great new feature is the ability to switch between a Server Core install and a GUI install without the need to reinstall the operating system. So if you have an application that is easily administered through a GUI - but can run on Server Core - you can switch to the GUI and perform the administration, and then switch back to Server Core. There are many more new features to explore in the new Windows Server 2012. A great place to research them is TechNet, where you will find all the information you need to get started with Windows Server 2012:
