Microsoft announces four Windows Server 2012 editions: What you need to know


For years, as Microsoft has released new versions of Windows Server, the world has waited with anticipation while Redmond attempted to figure out the exact mix of editions that it would sell to various customer segments. This fragmentation of the Windows Server line has been the butt of jokes and the stuff of confusion as customers attempted to make the best possible economic decision for their organizations while, at the same time, making sure that their needs would be met with whatever edition was selected.

How times change!

This week, Microsoft announced that Windows Server 2012 would be released in just four editions — Datacenter, Standard, Essentials, and Foundation. Note that the previously popular Enterprise edition is one of the editions that didn’t make the 2012 cut.

Each edition brings something different to the table and it’s going to be easier than ever for organizations to pick the best edition to suit its needs.
