Windows Server 2012 Unleashed (Unleashed)by Rand Morimoto
Synopses & Reviews
This is the most comprehensive and realistic guide to Windows Server 2012 planning, design, prototyping, implementation, migration, administration, and support. Extensively updated, it contains unsurpassed independent and objective coverage of Windows Server 2012’s key innovations, including improved virtualization components, enhanced security tools, new web and management resources, and Windows 8 integration.
Windows Server 2012 Unleashed reflects the authors’ extraordinary experience implementing Windows Server 2012 in large-scale environments since its earliest alpha releases, reaching back more than two years prior to its official launch. Microsoft MVP Rand Morimoto and his colleagues fully address every aspect of deploying and operating Windows Server 2012, including Active Directory, networking and core application services, security, migration from Windows Server 2003/2008, administration, fault tolerance, optimization, troubleshooting, and much more.
Valuable for Windows professionals at all skill levels, this book will be especially indispensable for intermediate-to-advanced level professionals seeking expert, in-depth solutions. Every chapter contains tips, tricks, best practices, and lessons learned from actual deployments: practical information for using Windows Server 2012 to solve real business problems.
Windows Server 20012 Unleashed covers the next generation of Windows Server operating system. It will release around the same time as Windows 8, and will integrate with it tightly. Windows Server 2012 includes a number of major updates and improvements to Windows Server, including Hyper-V virtualization, Remote Desktop Services (formerly Terminal Services), remote access technologies, better integration with desktop Windows, better support for cloud platforms, and more. Windows Server 2012 Unleashed will provide the comprehensive, authoritative, and practical information on Windows Server that the many fans of the series have come to expect, from basic installation and migration chapters through the more complex technology chapters on security, disaster recovery, performance optimization, and systems management. The authors - leading Windows Server experts - have written several previous bestselling Unleashed titles on Windows Server, and are extremely familiar with the core Windows 2012 platform. They have been on the early adopter TAP program for Windows 2012 for the past 2 years, more than 18-months before the public "saw" Windows Server 2012, and have been working with actual production implementations of Windows 2012 for the past year. They have based the book on lessons learned, best practices, tips, and tricks built on the experience they've gained prior in those years of working with the product.
