Windows Server 2008 Server Core

Server 2008 version had both 32 bit and 64 bit releases, however Server 2008 R2 started with migrating to

popular over the last decade, Microsoft is building up with newer versions of power shell with more advanced
features and that’s where IT Professionals have to keep in mind and keep learning the new cmdlets.
Server Core: Server core was introduced in Windows Server 2008 as a competitor to Linux/Unix operating
systems but with limited features. Microsoft is coming up with advanced features and with Server 2012
installation, it gives an option to switch to Server Core and vice-versa after the installation.

Server 2008 but with Server 2012, it is much easier to use.

migration which is a step up from Server 2008 R2’s Quick Storage Migration to prevent downtime. It is also
capable of migrating virtual machines (VMs) without shared storage.

SMB 3.0: SMB 3.0 provides improved performance of SMB Direct (SMB over RDMA), improved SMB event
messages, helps Hyper-V live migration over SMB, and other new features which makes it a robust feature in
Server 2012 R2.
