Windows Server 2012 for Embedded Systems
Windows Server 2012 for embedded systems provides OEMs with a proven, robust operating system platform for embedded applications in server appliances in a wide variety of industries where long term product availability is essential.
|Robust Operating System||Software Licensing for Windows Server 2012 for embedded systems has been made simpler. The number of editions has been reduced and the Standard Edition gets failover clustering and has all the benefits that previously used to be only part of the higher end editions.
New and improved networking features in Windows Server 2012 for embedded systems include significant changes to the Server Message Block (SMB) file and print-sharing protocol and network interface card (NIC) support, which helps improve server appliance performance and reliability.

|Server Core||Windows Server 2008 for embedded systems introduced a new installation mode, Windows Server Core, which installs only the files needed to support a designated server role. Server Core installation generally requires less maintenance and updating than a full Windows Server installation because fewer components are installed and running on the server. Hence, fewer components are exposed to attack over the network, making servers running the Server Core installation more secure, as they are less vulnerable to viruses, data theft or other compromises. Furthermore, Server Core delivers better uptime, as patching can be reduced, and Server Core continues to be an installation option in Windows Server 2012 for embedded systems.
Microsoft SQL Server 2012 for embedded systems is supported on Server Core. Server appliances running Microsoft SQL Server 2012 for embedded systems databases on server core, thus have a smaller footprint, are more secure and deliver better uptime, compared with appliances running Microsoft SQL Server 2012 for embedded systems databases on the full Windows Server installation.
|Virtualization||Help reduce costs, increase hardware utilization, optimize business infrastructure, improve server availability, and enhance their productivity with Hyper-V, powerful virtualization technology that enables businesses to take advantage of virtualization’s benefits, for your intelligent systems.|
