Windows Server 2012 R2 gives you the fast track to your own cloud
The new version of Windows Server is designed to make BYOD less painful for businesses. That’s not just about managing devices, though you can do that. From the servers you buy to how you put your IT together, R2 is trying to make it easier to give users what they want, so they don’t start going around you.
Every conversation with Windows Server customers ends up being about devices at some point, says Microsoft’s Mike Schutz, General Manager, Server and Tools. "If it’s not BYOD, because there are still some companies that don’t believe in BYOD, there’s no doubt that they have more types of devices entering their workforce. Whether they buy them or the employee buys them, the mobility trends are only accelerating." That’s why the R2 release has a range of features focused on BYOD, from remote access to authentication. "We have the new RDS [Remote Desktop] clients for iOS and Android and Mac, and the modern domain join – that’s what workplace join is, it’s domain join for unmanaged devices – and then extending that with Windows Intune."
