Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
For those of you that have been patiently waiting for the bits, they are now available on the MSDN and TechNet subscriber download centers. Ready to find out more? Be sure to visit the Windows Server 2012 Launch site at http://www.windows-server-launch.com/Home. You’ll see a wide variety of information on our cloud OS from a business and technical perspective. The site is getting crushed right now so you might want to come back a little later this afternoon.
Also see Satya Nadella's blog post on some of the key development aspects of Windows Server 2012.. We do of course have a press release on Microsoft.com if interested.
For those of you that are TechNet or MSDN subscribers, Windows Server 2012 is now available for download. If you don’t have a subscription, no problem. Download the Windows Server 2012 Trial Evaluation. This link is currently describing the release candidate but will be updated soon.
Microsoft.com/WindowsServer2012 is always a good starting point for overview information, the data sheet, downloads and case studies.
For those of you that are looking for technical information, be sure to go to the http://technet.microsoft.com/windowsserver tech center. There’s a wealth of deployment, security and management information there and you’ll see the release documentation light up through the course of the day.
Now all we need is RSAT to manage the server...
