Hi all,

Windows Server 2012,that you could test
free 'release candidate', is now available
in its final version.

To recap, here are the main new features:
- Hyper-V 3
- ReFS
- IIS8
- PowerShell v3
- Numerous optimizations

The licensing has also evolved. It has been
simplified, with rates identical for all servers
in the current range (two physical sockets
maximum).

- Standard Edition €19.99/month
- Datacenter Edition to €74.99/month

Note that the web version is not available
for Windows Server 2012 (replaced by
Standard).

You can now order your dedicated servers
installed with Windows Server 2012
licenses or via SPLA.
Purchasing through the Manager will be
available in the next few days.

For updating from a previous version
to Windows Server 2012, you can
enjoy a pro rata basis over the
license in a few days.

Do not hesitate to send back your
comments on our forum and mailing
list.

Regards

Installed and having a play.

One thing I do notice is that RDP is a ton faster than it used to be.

Just trying to work out where everything is.

I do like having a start menu though so will need to find where that is hidden.

Hi,

We're offering you the opportunity to test Windows Server 2012, the latest server version from Microsoft!

Strongly Cloud oriented, Windows Server 2012 includes many new features in terms of virtualisation and management of shared environments.

And more specifically:

- HyperV 3 (replication, resource management, migration ...) http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us//library/hh831410
- ReFS (dedup, replication, iSCSI ...) http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh831487

But there are also many other features such as IIS8, PowerShell v3 and the ability to manage your servers remotely through Server Manager:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-is/l...456#BKMK_tasks

Directly from your OVH manager, you can now Install Windows Server 2012 on the following ranges: KS 2G, SP Mini 2012, EG, MG and BHS servers (Canada).

Please note that once the final version of Windows Server 2012 is available, you will have to activate it with an official payable license planned for Q3 2012 if you need to continue to use this product.

Subscribe now to sd-windows-subscribe@ml.ovh.net to share your experiences and expectations with administrators but also with us.

Thanks,

Thomas, OVH
