Two weeks ago we ushered in the era of the Cloud OS with the launch of Windows Server 2012. By now, we hope you’ve had a chance to watch the Built from the Cloud Up keynote videos, download a Windows Server 2012 evaluation and try your hand at the $75,000 Launch Game. You may also have questions about how to put all this amazing technology to work in your datacenter. Our Ask the Experts series has the answers. What is an Ask the Experts session? We asked our community for Windows Server 2012 questions and you responded. Those responses were compiled into the most frequently asked questions and sorted across three topic areas. Then, we flew in special guest host Rod Trent (IT community dignitary and CEO of myITforum) to MC the sessions and present your questions to top engineering experts on video.
