    Now available: preview of new Windows Server 2012 R2

    Posted By Partha Srinivasan
    Product Manager, Windows Embedded Server and SQL Products

    The following is the first in a series of posts on Windows Server 2012 for Embedded Systems written by the team at Microsoft Windows Embedded.

    Windows Embedded customers can now download a release preview of the upcoming Windows Server 2012 R2 for Embedded Systems(the binary identical to the Windows Server 2012 R2), which will be available later this year. The preview allows customers to get their hands on a fully cloud-ready operating system that provides improved performance, hybrid cloud-service capabilities and innovative storage options for building robust, industry class server appliances.

    OEM manufacturers use Windows Server for Embedded Systems to build server appliances — preinstalled hardware and software combined with the operating system — which make the configuration, deployment and management of industrial devices simpler and faster. One of the key benefits of the embedded channel is the availability of recovery image; the pre-packaged image makes recovery from system failures quicker, reducing downtime and thus meeting regulatory SLA requirements for high availability. These server appliances are used in a number of industrial devices such as PACS machines in hospitals, store servers in retail stores, historian servers in manufacturing plants, and are a key enabler in developing intelligent system architectures.

    So what’s new coming from Windows Server 2012 R2 for Embedded Systems? There are many features and functionalities that are enhanced over the Windows Server 2012 for Embedded Systems, such as improvements to virtualization, networking, storage, server management and automation. Today, we offer an overview of the new features that can be leveraged by our embedded customers.

    Jay Loney, Principal Program Manager on Windows Embedded Automotive, had a great discussion with Geekwire’s Todd Bishop and John Cook. Jay covered the state of the art in automotive technology, the in-car app experiences (what he calls hot-rodding for geeks), and the future of the IP-connected car. It’s definitely worth a listen to learn more about where the driving experience of the future is headed.
