Hardware Requirements for Installing Windows Server 2012


Hardware requirements define the absolute minimum required to run the server software. The actual hardware requirements depend on the services that the server is hosting, the load on the server, and how responsive you want the server to be.

The services and features of each role put a unique load on network, disk, I/O, processor, and memory resources.

Virtualised deployments of Windows Server 2012 must match the same hardware specifications as required for physical deployments. Windows Server 2012 is supported on Hyper-V Server 2012 and certain third-party virtualisation platforms.

The minimum hardware requirements for Windows Server 2012 are shown in the following list;

Processor Architecture – 64 bit

Processor Speed – 1.4GHZ

Memory (RAM) – 512MB

Hard Disk Drive Space – 32GB
