Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Essentials Open License

Every business needs the efficiency of a server, but not every business has the luxury of hiring technical experts to set up and maintain a server. At the same time, while basic server use like email and data storage is necessary for everyone, not all business need or can afford more advanced server features.

A solution to all this has been provided by Microsoft: Windows Server 2012 Essentials. With this server, small businesses can provide access to all of their employees easily, while getting an easy to set up and easy to maintain server that is slimmed down to just include the basic uses needed by small businesses.

Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Essentials Features

Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Essentials includes advances in four crucial areas: data use and protection, access, improvements in the core infrastructure, and email. Combined, these new features make for the most powerful and easiest to use slimmed down server Microsoft has released.

Data focused upgrades:

Support for larger disksPrevious editions did not allow for disk support for drives that were 2 TB or larger. That limitation has been removed.

Support for more devicesPrevious editions could only allow for 25 client machines. That number has doubled in the 2012 edition.

Storage Spaces integrationThis feature is new to 2012, and it provides improved disk failure resilience, while making it easier to add drives. All of this is guided by wizards for easy use.

File History to find old versions of filesKeep a history of changes made to your files, so you can easily go back and find previous versions. This removes the need to contact administrators to get back to a previous file version, saving time and allowing more control over files for the user.

Online backing upThis is one of the biggest advancements for Essentials. Now, you can get all the benefits of cloud backup on your server through Microsoft Online Backup Service. You’ll have more secure files that are free from risk of failing and are easy to access.

Access upgrades:

Improved touch-based remote accessRemote access has always been an important aspect of Essentials server use, but that access has now been much improved by the improvement in access for touch-based devices like phones and tablets.

Administration connection monitoringAdministrators can now monitor who is connecting with which devices with Remote Connection Monitoring.

Join the server from outside the networkFor the first time, Essentials allows those outside the company network to access the server, allowing outside users to get access.

Core infrastructure upgrades:

Easier migration to StandardPrevious editions of Essentials struggled to migrate to Standard when it went over the limits of users and devices set on Essentials. That’s been made easier in this edition.

More media abilitiesEssentials gets some of the media improvements in other Microsoft Servers so that it’s easier to stream video and music and share images.

More add-in abilitiesThe server can more easily accommodate all the add-ins available for previous Small Business Servers, allowing for more abilities on the server.

Dashboard improvementsThe dashboard is now easier to use to start with and shows more information, like how far along you are in completing tasks. Administrators can also more easily glance at their dashboard and see overall server health. Security and updates are also easier to see at a glance for administrators.

Email upgrades:

Email choices with your serverIn previous server editions, Microsoft made the choice for how your business wanted to interact through Exchange email and collaboration. Now, you can make that choice. Exchange Server can be run as a second server on-premises. It can also be integrated through Office 365 as a cloud solution. Exchange can also be hosted.
