By Tony Lock
Windows Server 2012 is a big bet for Microsoft, and is a major step forward as releases go. It brings together wide-ranging new capability and functional improvements in the underlying operating system coupled with advances in management, orchestration and automation courtesy of System Center 2012 Service Pack 1. But how ready is it for mainstream deployment?
In order to answer this question, a number of members of Microsoft’s Rapid Deployment Program (RDP) were interviewed by Freeform Dynamics. As this program gives select customers early access to software for assessment in a real world environment, the feedback and conclusions emerging from this study provide valuable input for anyone considering adoption of the latest Windows Server and System Center releases.
