Jim was joined by John Zajdler, Chris Courney (Drashna), Greg Welsh, Mike Martis (BYOB) and Paul Braren for a deeper dive into Windows Server 2012 Essentials Beta that was released to the public on July 11, 2012.  In the show we look at two of the more discussed features of the new OS in Domains and Storage Spaces.  We cover both discussion points as well as live demos.
