One of the hallmarks of Windows Server 2012 (formerly known as Windows Server 8) have been its cloud integration features and the Windows 8 style Metro UI. The Metro Start Screen helps add useful applications and shortcuts for easy server management, which can be particularly useful if you are accessing the server from a mobile device such as a tablet. While it can be argued if the Metro Start Screen is indeed any good for a Windows Server, there is no doubt that it has added a unique look to this Windows Server OS.

Windows Server 2012 has enhanced networking features that can help reduce the complexity of managing network. It has made it more convenient to connect users to your company’s IT resources or to link your infrastructure with cloud based services.
Virtualization has been one of the core factors that Microsoft has been focusing on to make Windows Server 2012 more robust. With the new and improved virtualization features, you can now perform live migration between systems without any down time.
