As I start this blog entry, it's been nearly 8 months since I created my last self-study guide. For those of you following this blog, I apologize for the long gap. All I can say is that the requirements of work and life, coupled with a mountain of good intention, has seemed to push this new installment back for some time. I hope going forward that I will be able to publish at least once a month, but like always I have no idea what the future holds. So I appreciate everyone's patience and continuing encouragement to move forward with these self-study guides.
With this post, my plan is to focus on Windows Server 2012. Given that this is the newest server operating system for Microsoft, I have no idea in advance how long it will take to feel like I've covered it thoroughly. I am not even sure in advance how I will break out the various specialty areas in Windows Server 2012. With this entry, my purpose is to try and address the fundamentals. As always, the links I am providing below are all validated as of this writing, but I can make no promises about whether they'll continue to work over time. If you find some that don't resolve properly in the future, please write me and let me know which ones they are so I can try and keep them updated.
Now, on to the material...
To begin with, for those who need a definition up front, here is how Microsoft defines Windows Server 2012. I have taken this definition from here:
"Windows Server powers many of the worlds' largest datacenters, enables small businesses around the world, and delivers value to organizations of all sizes in between. Windows Server 2012 redefines the server category, delivering hundreds of new features and enhancements spanning virtualization, networking, storage, user experience, cloud computing, automation, and more. Simply put, Windows Server 2012 helps you transform your IT operations to reduce costs and deliver a whole new level of business value."
