Product Reviews
Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard - license is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 115.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 is easy to use. I dislike the metro style menus, but still functions as expected.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This review only covers the File System Deduplication feature embedded in Windows Server 2012 R2.Windows Server 2012 R2 ships with NTFS file system deduplication for non-system drives. This feature is very easy to turn on via the Server Manager – File and Storage Services – Volumes. Since you’re using Server Manager, you can be enabled deduplication remote systems. Select the Volume and right click to get the context menu and select “Configure Data Deduplication…” You have three options in the Deduplication Settings – Disabled, General purpose file server, and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) server. When you configure deduplication you can tell it to not process files where the modify date is less than a specified number of days. You can also set it to process only at night with the Set Deduplication Schedule… Deduplication works. I have seen up to 90% savings on my long term storage file system. It also works on compressed NTFS files. On a WSUSContent volume you will only see 1-2% improvement as it appears Microsoft performs deduplication at the release point with the same install package supporting multiple operating systems. You also see zero savings with active VHD and VHDX files as they are constantly being modified by Hyper-V. VHD(x) files would be a likely target especially with multiple instances of the same OS being used as guests.The down side, and why I can’t give this feature more than three stars is that you cannot fully remove the deduplication on a volume without formatting the volume. Through the GUI you can turn off deduplication but files that were already deduplicated will remain in a deduplication status. You can restore previously deduplicated files via PowerShell but you cannot actually delete the actual files that contain the deduped data from the volume, nor do those support files shrink after files have been removed.Bottom line – the Windows Server 2012 R2 file system deduplication feature works but has some limitations. It’s easy to configure. It’s not real time, which is actually good on volumes that are frequented by short lived files. It can effectively double your disk space, even when compared to NTFS compressioned files. But it cannot be removed from a volume once activated.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An extremely easy to use bullet-proof server implementation. A vast improvement on server 2008, and its other predecessors.We use it within a small business environment for file hosting and AAA, and would recommend this software.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced Server 2003 R2 with this version. Didn't have any issues, and the product worked as expected. Check mate!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In this project I am using the Distributed File System Namespaces and Replication roles in 2012 R2 to deliver files and content to the user base. Active Directory Sites and Services allows me to place a DFS node in each site to allow those users quick access to their files while also replicating them to the other nodes in the event of an outage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yay, it's Windows. All the usual suspects, plus some new fancies to complicate your IT life. It's great, it's my bread and butter, and it's my next cert target.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still evaluating this solution option. Expect it will get 4/5 stars. Need to determine how much the capacity/efficiency changes when moving from 2008 R2.
