Windows 2012 Datacenter requirements
Posted on 2013-06-21
I am new with Windows 2012, and I really apreciate some help.
VMWARE server (ISP server): Windows 2008 Server with AD
Physical host: Windows 2008 + SQL 2005
Physical host: Windows 2008 TMG
VMWARE server (ISP server): Windows 2003 Terminal Server
Windows 2003 IIS Application server
I need to update my datacenter servers, and it is time to choice the way.
First question: ESX or VMM2012 ?
Second question: If I get VMM2012 way... Cloud or Cluster?
Does VMM2012 private cloud requires a storage? Or can I buy two monster servers identicals, and create a private cloud?
I am considering to use Windows 2012 Datacenter version, because I am thinking in future that we will have more than 05 virtualized servers.
Third question: TMG is no more. What do I get?
Final question: I need to study Windows 2012. Anyone could give me a study line ? ebook? i-class?
