What is New in Windows Server 2012
Windows Server 2012 brings our company’s experience building and operating public clouds to the server platform for private clouds. The new licensing and packaging makes it easier to manage workloads in highly virtualized public and private cloud environments. Windows Server 2012 will move to a consistent licensing model and will have common features enabling the reduction of editions. These include:
1- Two editions, Standard and Datacenter.
2- Single licenses that cover up to two physical processors.
3- Editions differentiated by virtualization rights only (two for Standard; unlimited for Datacenter).
