5 out of 5 eggs Solid OS 04/09/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials 64B 1-2CPU


Perfect for home or small office usage, and IMO the price isn't terrible considering it includes CALs for 25 users/50 devices.

Really loving the centralized client backup feature. works great, and it utilizes data de-duplication to maximize storage efficiency.

My other favorite Server 2012 feature is NIC Teaming/LBFO. Super easy to set up, especially 'switch independent' mode. Basically just run thru the wizard and plug in your LAN cables.

Essentials also includes all the 'standard' features such as AD, DNS, DHCP, WSUS, etc etc.


I wish it came with 2 VM licenses

Other Thoughts:

2012 R2 Essentials license DOES include virtualization rights. You get (1) Physical and (1) Virtual instance. In this configuration, the Physical instance can ONLY run the Hyper-V role, you must remove all other roles to be in compliance.
