Just in case you weren’t paying attention this morning, the Preview (Beta) of Windows Server 2012 R2 and System Center 2012 R2 are now available for download and testing!

If you have a TechNet or MSDN Subscription, you are more than welcome to download from your subscriber site like I did earlier this morning – only took 20 minutes and 7 seconds to download the Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter Preview!

If you don’t have one of these subscriptions, fear not for you can download from the TechNet Evaluation Center or you can just use one of the links below that I copied from the site.  There are more items available on the Evaluation Center site so please do visit it as well.

Windows Server Evaluations

System Center and Windows Intune Evaluations

SQL Server Evaluations

Please download and start testing out the new awesome capabilities of the next release of these products.
