“very good server software”

OverallIt save my time.It is very helpful for virtual server.Most server computers use this program and are quite successful. Especially the presentation of the presentations at the same time, the transfer of files fast, the ease of printing and most importantly the ease of handling more than 50 computers with the biggest privileges.
ProsI like all the features of this software . We use this server software for a variety of applications. I haven't had any issues with it thus far.it has supportable on all flatform like other devices.There are great number of resources and training available wordwide. That is the strong part, and you can always go and read blogs and ask your questions on forms. There is always support.Best web server ever is IIS. My company can publish sites and services into IIS. It is fast and securable server.If you want to save your money you can configure different virtual servers. In this perceptive it is no important to buy new servers.
ConsThere are a lot of elements of Azure, cloud system of MIcrosoft. It is important for MIcrosoft to remain in market where cloud rules.The only difficulty I have had with this software is the ease of use when using other software with it

“The overall cost of engagement is high however the product itself is very good offering full R and P”

OverallMicrosoft provided good support on site and remotely to help us get started . Partners were available to implement on a fast time scale.
ProsThe new platform is called Microsoft R Server, and is compatible with Windows, Linux, Hadoop and Teradata software. There are five servers, If you are familiar with Microsoft products you need more than that to deploy this Analytics solution. For those who want to deploy this, Microsoft delivered a free version of R Server for developers.
ConsI would have expected better support from Microsoft, especially since this is a new initiative that we are exploring. Their response time on queries are not acceptable and that is my biggest concern.

“Habitual and proven assistant”

ProsLike all Microsoft products, the application has a wide range of functions and good integration with all other applications. The experience of my use of the program left only positive impressions. I recommend for implementation in small companies with up to 500 employees.
ConsThere are minor nuances in the work that can not even be called flaws. In fairness, I note that, in fact, they are the reverse side of the merits of the program.

“Small office - easy to manage network”

OverallWe have a small legal office with small budget for technology. MS Server R2 is easily setup, and stable, and gives us security and control over our network, both internally and externally.
ProsIt does everything I need
ConsMore cloud integration than I am comfortable with, but this is just my insecurity, not a reflection of product.
Recommendations to other buyersDo your homework before purchasing to insure you choose the right server product for your individual needs. The "small business server" package is right for us. Seek out product sales support from Microsoft for your recommended server solution.

“Platform for data analysis and building applications”

ProsWe use Microsoft R Server to create mobile applications. The code is written in the R programming language. Particularly pleased with the possibilities of the platform, such as creating applications with AI, data analytics, predictive modeling.
ConsIt is generally better for a beginner not to run this software on his own - you need a lot of experience. In addition, I can not name other minuses - an excellent program performed by professionals in their field.

“Excellent functional development environment”

ProsI use the Microsoft R Server development environment to work with the R programming language. The tool allows you to process various statistical data. Full integration with SQL Server tool is available.
ConsFirstly, while working with Microsoft R Server, the computer processor is heavily loaded: when working with large amounts of data, system performance decreases. Secondly, due to the large number of integrations with other applications, the security level is reduced.

“It provides flexibility in our duties and make easier all the activities that we do in our daily day”

OverallThe easy way that this software has been made up, gives the opportunity to learn faster and become a expert in that area.
ProsThe easy way that we can manage the software and all the functionalities are awesome. The support has improved a lot.
ConsRecently the premier support has increased the cost and this is something that can be improved, but it has been the opposite.

“Great R programming platform”

ProsMicrosoft is probably the only developer who has made a decent platform for other developers. It's especially convenient to work in conjunction with Microsoft R Server + Azure, because then you can run R-scripts on Spark.
ConsI did not manage to deploy work on Data Science VM. I wrote to the support service about this, but they said that there was no problem with R Server. Nevertheless, I did not succeed in expanding the work.

“Convenient platform for statistical analysis”

ProsIn our company, we use the free open source Microsoft R Server platform to perform statistical analysis. The service is based on the R programming language. There is full integration with SQL Server 2016.
ConsThe first drawback of Microsoft R Server that I want to mention is the low level of security due to integration with a large number of cloud solutions. The second minus is a difficult interface to master.

“Multifunctional development environment”

ProsI like R Server primarily because it, like other Microsoft applications, has a huge number of functions and integration options, allowing you to conveniently process various statistical data.
ConsThe interface would not hurt to simplify a bit. The technical support service is not competent enough, so I would like to see more informative educational materials in the future.

“The best shared drive folder of all time”

OverallSharing files between offices, organizing patient files, and keeping patient files as a second backup
ProsI love this folder. This folder allows our offices to work together by being able to find shared files easily. You are able to create folders to separate and organize, just like any Microsoft program.
ConsThe only difficulty I have had with this software is the ease of use when using other software with it. Not entirely R drives fault.

ProsThis software allows us to work together, easily find common files and share them between different teams. Extensive integration with many other programs to increase the available functionality.

“This is not Windows 2012 Server, it's R Server...”

OverallFascinating product and interesting language. Highly recommended for developers.
ProsThe new platform is called Microsoft R Server, and is compatible with Windows, Linux, Hadoop and Teradata software. There are five servers: Microsoft R Server for Hadoop on Red Hat Microsoft R Server for Teradata DB Microsoft R Server for Red Hat Linux Microsoft R Server for SuSE Linux RRE for Windows If you are familiar with Microsoft products you need more than that to deploy this Analytics solution. You need to have a big percentage of your infrastructure with Microsoft products to make the most of this product. For those who want to deploy this, Microsoft delivered a free version of R Server for developers. This might be the future for developers and System Analysts. Be prepared.
ConsOpen R is free... Microsoft R Server is not. However, the connection between R Server and Microsoft family will make this more appealing.

“The most customizable server os for beginners with graphical user interface”

OverallI am using Microsoft Server 2012 with Google Cloud Platform. Easy to set up and manage. There are a lot of resources online as well. If you have any trouble you can fix it by searching on the web. Overall, bit on expensive side, but great for professionals. But if your company is small and don't have a budget that high you can use cloud solutions such as GSuite.
ProsFor professional use
ConsNot so easy to start learning
Recommendations to other buyersNot for low budget businesses, more fore large companies with IT infrastructure and larger needs

ProsNothing more convenient to track the actions of users on our sites, we have not yet found. With the help of the service, you can understand what products and services users like, and offer them appropriate advertising. An indispensable software for data analysis.

“Server Upgrade for Church”

OverallGood, I think I would have opted for the Cloud Based software if I'd know that was the future.
ProsNo more SQL's. Ease of adding new users, server updates are easy to do and can down and install later to not affect users. Has "health reports" for the server to make you aware of issues with backups, etc.
ConsDNS (network connections) information isn't as easy to use and set up. Manual is difficult for the average administrator, several pages. Need more condensed light version of manual that can be read quickly.

ProsIf you need to know how users rate our sites, what they don't like and which tabs they never enter at all, we include Microsoft R Office, a system for analyzing data. In addition, based on the preferences of users, the software automatically offers appropriate advertising.
ConsDifficult to learn service. In addition, it appeared quite recently - the developers are constantly adding new tools, which may already confuse the novice.

“The program is definitely worth a look”

ProsOur company uses Microsoft R Server for machine learning. We chose this particular program, because there is a large set of vector and mathematical libraries that facilitate the work of programmers.
ConsYou need to learn the R language to work with the program. Therefore, I would not recommend it to small and medium-sized companies to perform some small tasks. Developers who know R are expensive in the labor market.

“Great Tool for Statistical Modeling & Insights”

ProsOur analysts use R out of the box and have loved the functionality over open source options. It is very easy to set up and use for different scenarios, even for less technical analysts that have less experience in coding. The results produced are easily summarized and consumable for our exec teams as well.
ConsNot as much flexibility and use cases as other open source options but that's really the functionality of the tool and how it's set up to work.

“Microsoft best server so far”

OverallAs a windows server user for year I believe server 2012R2 is Microsoft's best release so far. With a lot of virtualization features and tools making an administrators work easy. The server manager has a look that is appealing to the eye. But for any administrator who loves scripting they will agree their shift towards powershell was one of the best decisions they have ever made. It is much easier to use. I always say with powershell if you know what you want to do you can do it.

“Trial and Errors”

ProsIf you are using other Microsoft products, the navigation is seamless as the products communicate with one another . The program allows you to work efficiently and effective in a team setting as you can easily share files with other employees or locate files.
ConsThe software requires that you have patience and are willing to go through trail and errors as there is definitely a learning curve. The start-up is not easy and may require product support service.

“Windows server for gamin?”

OverallThis might sound bit odd, but I actually tried running Server version of Windows to test how good it is for gaming thinking this version of operation system would eat up less processing power and ram. At the end? Does not worth spending to much time converting something business to home. and after trial you would have to pay a lot or crack the software.

“Huge Data Analysis can be done by R server. I found it offering everything I need but had to search”

Overallit's common to downsize the problem to the local machine for rapid code prototyping iterations and data is very important to every company. The real data that we get from R server is very helpful in Artificial Intelligence operations
ProsRapid big data prototyping and also the integration with other software to get more robustness in functionality.
ConsNot that easy to learn, it should have been made more user friendly. Too much options on same pane is also not suggested.

“Stable and easy to use”

OverallWe've been using Windows Server 2012 R2 since its release and it really does seem to be one of the best server versions we've used. It's nice and easy to add roles and features and secure. Keeping it up to date is really easy since Microsoft released the monthly rollup patches making it even easier to ensure we are secure

“A computer program that requires a lot of server.”

OverallMost server computers use this program and are quite successful. Especially the presentation of the presentations at the same time, the transfer of files fast, the ease of printing and most importantly the ease of handling more than 30 computers with the biggest privileges.
