Windows Server 2012 Standard is designed for physical or minimally virtualized environments. When it comes to building a private cloud, offering cloud services, or connecting more securely to clouds, the message is clear: Your organization wants a consistent, integrated approach that helps you solve fundamental business and IT challenges. You also want assurance that a growing set of devices can take advantage of more applications and services that can be deployed on-premises and in public cloud environments. Using Windows Server 2012 to cloud optimize your IT provides an optimal solution to meet these unique needs.
Windows Server 2012 captures the experience Microsoft has gained from building and operating public clouds to deliver a highly dynamic, available, and cost-effective server platform for your datacenter and your private cloud. It offers businesses and hosting providers a scalable, dynamic, and multitenant-aware cloud infrastructure that connects more securely across premises and allows IT to respond to business needs faster and more efficiently.
If you want the flexibility of a private cloud, implementing solutions in a virtualized environment is not enough. Windows Server 2012 lets you go beyond virtualization to deploy and more securely connect to private clouds in a flexible IT environment that adapts dynamically to changing business needs. More and enhanced features provide high performance and scalability to enable a truly multitenant infrastructure where networking, compute, and storage resources are isolated among tenants on the same host.
