Windows Server 2012 Essentials Beta Deeper Dive: Domains and Storage Spaces
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.
We did a first look video last week when the product was released. You can find it here. We also talked about it some during the Home Tech Podcast last week. That discussion is here.

Really enjoyed the show (first I’ve seen), lots of good info. Got me interested in WS2012E enough to start building a VM with it 😀
Also, it would be helpful if the youtube description had some of the links mentioned in the show. I know viewers can click on the link to your site, then click on the link specific to the broadcast they watched, then find the topic specific links mentioned, but the description box seems like a preferable option. Just a thought 🙂
Again, kudos for a great show and am looking forward to more WS2012E content. Thanks!
Thanks Omni. Do you think I could just put the link to the show notes post (in other words bring them back here) in the YouTube description? I really only like to have those in one place to make it easy on me. You thoughts?
I will update the video for this post on YouTube so you see what I mean.
Hi Jim – Thanks for your reply. Since I have no desire to create a detour from your actual post, I’ll try to keep it brief 😀
First, definitely a great start by adding a link to the post containing the links. Kudos for that addition! 🙂
I’m just very much in favor of click-hop minimization. One of the most common complaints/comments on videos (regardless of topic) is “Where’s the links?” If watching a YouTube video that mentions 6-10 links, it’s just a huge bonus for viewers if most the links are listed in the description. You can still list your own links first, of course.
I empathize with your point regarding the potential to increase your own administrative tasks. Over time, that can definitely amount to a sizable difference. I certainly appreciate the desire to balance administrative effort with enhanced user experience.
Again, great show with some excellent content. Really looking forward to seeing more about WS2012E.
I see your point. Since it’s really just cut and paste, I will add the notes to the YouTube posts going forward. Thanks for the suggestions and for the encouragement. We are always just looking to help out!
