Windows Server 2012 Performance Tuning Guide

Most individuals just install Windows Servers and leave them to run. Often the OS is perceived as not really capable of being optimised. In reality this is not true.

Whereas Windows Server will auto tune to some degree there are decisions we make before we even start installing the operating system that will have an impact for the whole life of the computer.  Microsoft have released the Performance Tuning guide for Windows Server 2012 which will help you make sure those early mistakes are not made and systems can be optimised for the task they have been deployed for.

In addition the Microsoft Server Performance Advisor has been updated to support Windows Server 2012.  This product will enable ITPros to collect metrics to enable the identification, diagnosis and comparison of performance metrics.  The SPA comes with advisor packs for the core os, IIS and the Hyper-V host.  There is also a Channel9 video showing how to use the SPA tool.
