Be lean and stay lean
With Gartner reporting that two-thirds of server workloads are being virtualised, it means that an increasing number of companies are turning to virtualisation and cloud technologies to eliminate upfront costs, free up resources and ultimately scale up or down as needed.
Because we understand what a modern business needs to succeed, we've built these capabilities into Windows Server 2012 R2. Without additional outlay, your business can evolve to take advantage of all the benefits virtualisation can bring. It's the very definition of "doing more with less."
Top reasons to virtualise
More apps on a single server
Rather than having a dedicated server for each business application, you can run more apps on a single server, saving on hardware and power costs. Virtualisation is built into Windows Server 2012 R2, so you don't have to pay more for extra functionality.
Stay open for business if
Don’t lose valuable custom in case of a power outage, flood, break-in or fire. Disaster recovery is integrated with Windows Server 2012 R2, replicating your server on-site, or in the cloud as a fully managed service.
Access more data storage
on the fly
From spreadsheets, presentations to videos, you need plenty of space to store and access data securely. Why spend more on Storage Area Networks when you can get virtual Storage Spaces with Windows Server 2012 R2, and increase or decrease storage on the fly.
