Today’s organizations need to give workers access to data and information — across varied networks and devices — while still keeping costs down. Innovations that meet these needs — such as virtualization and cloud-based applications — help organizations maximize existing infrastructure investments, while exploring new services, improving management, and increasing availability.New and enhanced capabilities in Windows Server 2012 help you meet these challenges by making it easier and less costly to ensure secure access to valuable digital assets and comply with regulations. These capabilities include:
- Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). Improvements to AD DS installation and deployment and AD Federation Services (AD FS) as a server role.- Remote Desktop Services (RDS). Enhancements with Remote Desktop Services (RDS) and easier deployment of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solutions.- DirectAccess for Remote Access. Helps IT offer users seamless, more secure access to corporate data from virtually any Internet connection.- Dynamic Access Control. Used for compliance and data leakage prevention to enable Data Governance.
After completing this Windows Server 2012 training course— through a series of videos, virtual labs, and whitepapers — you will have a detailed understanding of how Windows Server 2012 enables you to give workers access to data and information across varied networks, devices, and applications — and do it in an easier, more cost effective and more secure fashion.

In this module, we will cover each of the new features of Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) in Windows Server 2012, the problems these features address, and what is required for you to deploy and use them. The module explores the deployment improvements, virtualization improvements, and new features of AD DS management.
With Windows Server 2012, the deployment of session-based desktops and applications becomes simpler and more powerful than ever before. In this module we will cover the new features and enhancements with RDS and investigate the IT Admin experience for easier deployment of VDI solutions based on RDS.
This module provides an overview of the new, easy to deploy, integrated remote access solution that enables employees’ access to corporate network resources while they work remotely. It also enables IT administrators to manage corporate computers that are located outside the internal network.
This module provides an overview of the new Dynamic Access Control capabilities built into Windows Server 2012 and how it can best be used for compliance and data leakage prevention to enable Data Governance. With Dynamic Access Control, you now have greater control over file server data by using Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) claims, a more robust ACL model, AD DS centralized authorization/auditing policy, and data classification. This module also provides an overview of how to use the data classification capabilities within Dynamic Access Control.
