Microsoft releases Windows Server 2012
Microsoft says Windows Server 2012 adds features that make it easier to manage large clusters of servers in data centers remotely. The Redmond, Wash., company is trying to capitalize on the industry trend toward “cloud computing,” where computing tasks are spread out over many servers, accessed via the Internet.
The latest major update to Windows Server was the 2009 release of the second version of Windows Server 2008.
A developer preview version of Windows Server 2012 was released last year.
