Windows Server 2012 - Server 8 Beta RRS feed

  • Question

  • When will the next version of Windows server (2012 - 8) be available for Beta testing? I have already tested out System Center 2012 and SQL server "Denali". I am anxious to see the NIC Teaming, Hypervisor, HA, clustering, etc.

  • There hasn't been any official annoucement on the timing of beta or RC release, but you can test out the Developer Preview of Windows Server "8".  No guarantees on if/how it will work with the System Center 2012 Suite of betas and RCs currently available, however.  It's really too early to be testing Server "8" for anything other than developing for it.  (Hence the name "Developer Preview")

    Hope this helps,

    Me, I just wait till my Technet info comes out.


    :P Advice offered, If you need more help it is advised to seek the council and advice of paid professionals. The answer is always 42, or reboot.
