If you are a small to midsize business that is looking for a reliable way to protect business data, Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials and Windows Server 2012 R2 provide a solution to protect your data by centralizing data storage, restricting access to data, and backing up data on-premises and in the cloud.

If your business has up to 25 users and 50 devices, use Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials. For up to 100 users and 200 devices, use the Standard or Datacenter editions of Windows Server 2012 R2 with the Windows Server Essentials Experience role installed.
