Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V highlights

Microsoft has traditionally put out point releases to its server operating systems about every two years; Windows Server 2012 R2 will ostensibly show up just over a year after the initial release. Logic would suggest that such a short release cycle would contain little in the way of new capabilities, but in this case, logic has been defied, as the R2 release delivers a significant number of both new and improved features. Hyper-V is just one of the areas with rich improvements. We hit on ten of the best new features in this slideshow. Rumor has it that you’ll be able to check out these features yourself in a beta release coming June 26.
