Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Promo Reg stalwarts Trevor Pott and Liam Proven had teamed up to write The Register Guide to Windows Server 2012 - it is fab and it is free,* and it is well worth a read.

The authors deliver a great overview of WS2012 and its place in today's IT environment. Windows Server 2012 is the server version's first big update for four-and-a-half years.

It is as big a leap over 2008 R2 as 2008 R2 was over 2003. Server 2012 comes with some great new features. It also refines previous versions of Server to bring it past the "never use version 1.0" stage and up to parity, in features and stability, with competing offerings.

Download The Register Guide to Windows Server 2012 via our ebooks page.

There are two .mobi versions for Kindle. One is free to download - and *one is available via Amazon for £1.53. The sole difference between the two is that the Amazon hosted version lets you sync the book across all devices.

The book is also available in EPUB file format, free of charge. ®
