The Technical Scenarios provide guidance that addresses an area of interest or particularly compelling capability enabled by Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows Server 2012. Typically, multiple features or product capabilities must come together to solve a problem or address a need. The guidance in this area will grow over time as we address more scenarios and get feedback from our customers.
Access and Information Protection
You can leverage new features in Active Directory to enable employees and partners to access protected corporate data from their personal devices and at the same time manage risk and govern the use of corporate resources.
Building Your Cloud Infrastructure: Scenario Overview
You can leverage new features around network and storage virtualization that, when combined with improved server virtualization, enable the building of your cloud infrastructure based on Windows Server 2012. This will help with your strategy in delivering Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) or building hosted services.
Dynamic Access Control: Scenario Overview
You can apply data governance across your file servers to control who can access information and to audit who has accessed information.
Hosting-Friendly Web Server Platform (IIS): Scenario Overview
Rapid and efficient scaling of your web applications makes for a cloud-ready web platform. Enhanced security, application initialization, NUMA-aware scalability, and the sharing of resources across sites allows for this rapid scaling with minimal management overhead.
Increasing Server, Storage, and Network Availability: Scenario Overview
New experiences in Windows Server 2012 work together to improve availability, performance, and reliability at the single-server and multiple-server (scale-up and scale-out) levels.
