In April 2012, Microsoft officially announced that the product previously code named Windows Server "8" will be named Windows Server 2012. This updated Windows Server 2012: First Look course builds on the original Windows Server "8" First Look course with the addition of 4 new modules designed to go into more detail around the core Windows Server 2012 platform capabilities.
After completing this course, you will learn how to cloud optimize your IT with Windows Server 2012 and how to take advantage of the skills and investment you have already made in building a familiar and consistent platform. With Windows Server 2012, you gain all the Microsoft experience behind building and operating private and public clouds, delivered as a dynamic, available, and cost-effective server platform. This course will cover how Windows Server 2012 delivers value in four key ways including how it takes you beyond virtualization, delivers the power of many servers, opens the door to every app on any cloud, and enables the modern work style.
This course has been replaced by a new Technical Overview course and a supporting series of new deep dives. The full list is available here.
