For example, the OS now supports twice as many CPU cores --- a total of 320 --- than in the early release. e new version also handles 4 terabytes of memory, again twice the old maximum. e tech specs may sound impressive, but what do these changes mean for the day-to-day requirements of IT managers? Here's a closer look. Cloud Capabilities Clouds, whether private, public or hybrid, are on the IT roadmaps of most organizations these days, and Windows Server 2012 provides appropriate underpinnings for bringing those plans to life. "All of the key capabilities of cloud computing are found in the new release as defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology," says Mitch Tulloch, author of Introducing Windows Server 2012. "In other words, you've got broad network access, on-demand self-service, resource pooling, measured service, rapid elasticity --- the whole nine yards." ese capabilities mean the OSs can take IT managers a step closer to achieving the cloud ideal of making an entire data center look like one large pool of computing and storage capacity, Desai adds. "Rather than requiring an administrator to do a lot of work, you have systems that automatically manage the infrastructure." In addition, Windows Server 2012 can be optimized for hybrid clouds by accessing public cloud services, including Windows Azure. " is allows the Windows platform to run in a traditional data center architecture or as a guest in a cloud provider in a hybrid manner," Schulz says. Other features important for cloud environments include security
