Microsoft SharePoint offers organizations a collection of tools for managing and prioritizing tasks and information through a single server. Often described as a content management system and a collaboration suite, SharePoint could also be called an integrated knowledge-management platform. It includes features to help organizations more seamlessly collaborate online, manage processes, search for data, manage and share documents, host sites, access stored information, and even create and manage wikis and blogs.

Description: 

Windows Server is a server operating system that enables a computer to handle network roles such as print server, domain controller, web server, and file server. As a server operating system, it is also the platform for separately acquired server applications such as Exchange Server or SQL Server. The Standard edition is designed for small-to-medium-sized organizations with physical or lightly virtualized server environments.

This donation provides two core licenses for Windows Server Standard. Windows Server requires a minimum of 8 core licenses for each physical processor and a minimum of 16 core licenses for each server. The Standard edition allows up to two virtual instances of the server software when all cores on the server are licensed. For additional licensing information, see the Guide to Windows Server Editions and Licensing.

 

Which Versions of This Software Are Available

You can choose to download the current version or the previous version of this software. You can find out which version is the current one on the Current Versions of Microsoft Products page. In addition, you can download the software in any language that's available.

 

Benefits for Organizations

If you have system administration experience, you can use Windows Server to: 

  • Run multiple server roles and different operating systems on a single server
  • Reduce the amount of hardware needed to run server workloads
  • Minimize the time it takes to set up hardware and software and reproduce test environments 

 

Major Capabilities

  • Server virtualization: Windows Server provides tools for creating and managing a virtualized server computing environment. You can replicate a virtual machine from one location to another, without shared storage, storage arrays, or other replication technologies.
  • Server management: Server Core and Nano Server provide minimal environments for running specific server roles. Those roles are then easier to maintain and manage and less exposed to attack. Administrators can manage groups of servers collectively from within a single, integrated console.
  • Integrated services: Windows Server  delivers a unified platform for web publishing that integrates IIS, ASP.NET, and Windows Communication Foundation and also supports SharePoint Services.
  • Failover clustering: Administrators can minimize disruptions of services and applications by creating a redundant server environment with dynamic hardware partitioning.
  • DirectAccess: This secure tunneling feature allows access to the network from any computer or device. It is faster than typical VPN connections and provides off-site access to file shares, on-premises equipment, and other resources. 

 

Licensing

The Standard and Datacenter editions of Windows Server both use processor-based licensing, with each license allowing up to two physical processors. 

The two editions have identical features, but they differ in the number of virtual instances of the server software you are allowed to run. 

For additional information about the available editions of Microsoft Windows Server and the server and client licensing requirements, see the Guide to Windows Server Editions and Licensing
