Server 2012 R2 eBookIf you’ve paid attention to our blog/eNewsletters, you know that Microsoft often makes a lot of materials available for free when they upgrade their various products.  This makes sense, especially since Microsoft is getting more aggressive with their upgrades, now upgrading most products every two years.  And although 2012 is what we refer to as an “evolutionary” upgrade (as opposed to “revolutionary”) there are still some important improvements that are worth taking a look at.

Windows Server 2012 R2 is no exception.  Released a bit over a month ago, this significant update to their server OS offers some significant enhancements, especially in:

  • Hyper-V
  • Active Directory
  • Group Policy
  • Storage
  • Networking

So, how do you learn this stuff?  By using it and working with it.  And Microsoft has made the tools necessary to do this available for no cost.  Just click here and follow the instructions and you’ll get a copy of the eBook “Introducing Windows Server 2012 R2.”

But you can also build your own Server 2012 R2 virtual lab.  Pretty cool.
