There is also the feature of robust recovery options for failover. An additional improvement of Windows Server 2012 Standard R2 is the development of applications and websites, as extended support has been established for open frameworks.
Application portability also ensures that applications can be seamlessly scaled and flexibly deployed to the public cloud, service providers, and local data center. Windows 2012 R2 Standard also saves storage costs through VHD deduplication and various other options.
Reduce costs with improved virtualization platform
The developers provide you with a virtual desktop infrastructure. Despite the new features and numerous optimizations in Windows Server 2012 Standard R2, the system requirements are the same as in the previous version. Microsoft offers the possibility to install the server operating system on two physical processors and two virtual machines. This is a plus point, which is particularly noticeable in virtualization and which allows you to reduce many costs.
Other innovations in Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Standard R2 include the modern user interface, which provides an optimal user interface for touch screens, the Windows Azure program for server backup in the Azure cloud and the improved Task Manager to guarantee more performance. You will notice further optimizations in PowerShell 3.0, which provides improved management of system settings. Additionally, this feature becomes standard in Windows 2012 R2 with the Internet Information Service 8.0 for extended validation certificate management and the new protocol version SMB 3.0, which provides faster and more stable file sharing access.
Access Control for Greater Security
Developers have also improved tools such as Hyper-V and DirectAccess: the virtualization platform now delivers increased performance, while DirectAccess provides IPv6 bridging technologies to your server. Windows Server 2012 Standard R2 also has new storage features such as a released VHDX, storage QoS, and tiered storage.
The popular NTFS is complemented in Windows Server 2012 Standard R2 by the new ReFS file system, designed specifically for data storage on data servers. The so-called Dynamic Access Control, specially introduced for dynamic access control, regulates file access with the aid of metadata. It works in addition to the Active Directory security lines and thus prevents unauthorized access when moving files.
