Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Essentials

The Essence of the Simple, Effective Server

When Microsoft discontinued the Small Business Server, it left a lot of small businesses worried. How would they be able to buy a new server that would provide them with the features they need and the simplicity of administration they require?

Microsoft has answered that question with Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Essentials, which is in many ways a resurrected version of the Small Business Server. Like the SBS, the server is designed for easy use without a tech background. It is focused on the features small businesses need while eliminating the top-end features that won’t be useful.

Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Essentials brings together a Windows 8-adjacent operating system, with all the significant abilities small businesses need and none of the extra complexity that makes most servers so hard to work with.

Not the Windows Server product you need today? Take a look at the rest of our vast number of Windows Server options to find what you’re looking for. We’ve got all the most recent Windows Server editions and all required CALs.

Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Essentials Features

When Less Really Is What You’re Looking For

There’s a theory about technology that everyone always wants more. They want more features, more power, more capacity: they want more of everything. It’s that theory that leads to servers getting packed with tools that most businesses don’t need, tools that require a lot of expert skill to manipulate.

Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Essentials works from a different perspective: for small businesses, slimming down is often the better option. This server removes all the complexity, irons out the difficult navigation, takes away the coding, and provides a quality server that does just what a small business needs.

Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Essentials includes all of the following features and more:   

  • The successor of the Small Business Server: If you are unsure what a Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Essentials will look like, recognizing that this is the real successor of the Small Business Server line ought to put your mind at rest. This server is built with the same philosophy: small business-oriented tools that can be operated even with a small business’ limitations. While some beloved features from SBS are not present, such as Exchange, they have been replaced by a far stronger connection to Office 365 and all its vast number of solutions.   
  • Save money with a CAL-free server: Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Essentials can handle up to 25 users, and best of all, it does not require CALs. The 25-user limit makes it possible to manage all the connections most businesses need while also reducing the complexity of administration and server memory requirements that are necessary for hosting users. At the same time, the lack of CALs saves small businesses more money. Buy the server, and you’re done with your investment.   
  • New virtuality capabilities: For the first time, virtualized solutions have been added to the Essentials server. While Hyper-V virtualization is still reserved for the more powerful Windows Server editions, there are still some limited virtualization capabilities present on this server.   
  • The most straightforward server administration available: The feature that sells Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Essentials is the simplified administration. Unlike other servers that are code intensive and have complex operations for almost every task, this server is designed to allow a small business to operate a server without any tech support. This is achieved through the Dashboard and wizards. The Dashboard collects all the primary server tools in a single place and simplifies them so anyone can use them. Wizards can walk users through any processes that are still relatively complex. At the same time, the new AnywhereAccess feature allows administrators to access all resources.
