While the other guys have been focused on licensing shenanigans, (three licensing changes in a year...), we have been hard at work delivering the broadest and deepest Windows Server release ever for customers of all sizes full of rich innovation.

Today we launch Windows Server 2012, a generational leap for servers and the best platform for the cloud.  Whether you're a small company setting up your first sever or running the largest datacenters at cloud scale, Windows Server 2012 delivers the best server experience.

A survey of 70 early adopter customers from around the world revealed that they expect, on average:

  • a 52% reduction in downtime
  • a 41% reduction in workload deployment time, and
  • 15 hours of productivity time saved per year, per employee

91% of the companies surveyed expect a reduction in server administration labour and 88% expect a reduction in network administration labour, all delivered by adopting Windows Server 2012.
