Windows Server 2012 provides greater deployment flexibility and richer ongoing management capabilities. We discuss new deployment options for Windows Server 2012 and its roles and features, including the ability to minimize server footprint using Features on Demand. This session also details the flexibility you can enjoy by seamlessly moving between Server Core (recommended), Minimal Server Interface or full GUI installations. We dive deep into Server Manager’s new multi-server remote management capabilities to see how it can centralize management across many servers with a rich unified view, tailored to your environment and the way you want to manage. By understanding the new deployment and management possibilities, you will leave prepared to design your deployments and plan your ongoing management.

  • Hopefully it will make more sense than with 2008 core.

  • Looking for insight and skills into the best way to manage a Windows Server 2012 core installation.

  • rmatteirmattei (√-1) 8 Σ π ... and it was amazing

    I'm looking forward to this, I like the idea of server core, but it didn't look right in 2008

  • I also am looking forward to the features of Windows 2012 Core and how this can be integrated into  my environment for management, security and application performance.

  • I would like to understand when and why to use Core as well as what complications this may cause vs. a traditional install of the Windows server operating system.

  • Will there be any discussion of UAC?  IS there any UAC on server core?

  • I like the idea of core because you can take out all the modules and GUI stuff you don't need, but still get the management functionality from System Center, Server Manager, etc. 

    It would be good to get some numbers (i.e. for a 1000 VM environment, you can save X% GB, Y% CPU, Z% RAM for an average workload.

  • You mentioned there was ~ 4Gb savings between server core and the full GUI. Does that estimate include savings from removing the SxS files as well?
