LIVE NOW: Never mind Windows 8, speak your brains on Server 2012

6 months on... how is it for you?

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Live Chat Windows Server 2012 was part of a Microsoft launch wave that included Windows 8 and Office 2013.

While the benefits of the latter two are debatable, on server Microsoft has delivered a solid performer that’s completely surpassed Windows Server 2008 and deserves attention. Among the biggest changes are advances in Hyper-V, giving Windows shops the confidence to stop stumping up for VMware.

Six months after Windows Server 2012 was released to manufacturing, The Reg returns to Windows Server to discover how - and where - it’s going.

We find out who’s using Windows Server 2012, what features are working best and what capabilities remain the operating system's best kept secrets.

We also look ahead at Microsoft’s Server roadmap now it has emerged that the next version will be part of a raft of platform updates codenamed Blue - which will encompass the successor to the questionable Windows 8. Where does Microsoft go after Windows Server 2012 and how does it fit in with Azure?

Joining us will be Mary Jo Foley, veteran Redmond blogger at All About Microsoft, who will field your questions on Microsoft, Windows roadmaps and Blue in particular. In the Microsoft corner will be Risual co-founder Alun Rogers, who will tackle your detailed technical questions on subjects such as Hyper-V.

So, bring us your technical, feature and roadmap questions yearning to be free today, 15 Feb, at 14.00 GMT time, 6.00 Pacific, 9.00 Eastern. You can register for the Live Chat below. ®
