Windows Server 2012 Wows IT

IT is wowed by things that would bore an ordinary user. Most folks wouldn't know what to do with a server set up with server roles, and the common heart surely wouldn't race at the mention of storage deduplication. But IT folks aren't ordinary folks. Instead of flashy this and fancy that, you tend to care about features that get things done. And here Windows 2012 delivers.

Now the Enterprise Strategy Group agrees, or at least its survey does. In it 90 percent say they will roll out the Windows Server 2012 within two years.

While there are a lot of PowerShell and other IT goodies, it is large categories of function that are driving upgrades. More than half are hopped up about virtualization, and almost half can't wait to get their hands on its news private cloud capabilities, the survey finds.
