Operating System

Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials Picture 25409
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. The same core operating system that does all of that is available for smaller-scale deployments as well, in the form of Server 1012 Essentials.

This edition of Windows Server 2012 is ideal for small business environments, with up to 25 users or 50 devices; no CALs are needed. It has a simple interface and is pre-configured for connectivity to many cloud-based services. It is not licensed for use as both a physical server and a virtual server, though: it can only be used as one or the other.

For more advanced deployments, additional users, or support for more than two CPUs please check out the Standard or Datacenter versions.
