If you were paying attention, you may be asking yourself what the heck I am talking about. “I thought you said a there were only two flavors of Windows Storage Server 2012 R2, Workgroup and Standard.” Well, guess what my friends, now there are three. So, what makes this one different? First, it comes with ability to be an active directory domain controller and it mirrors the Server 2012 R2 Essentials experience. This makes this NAS EXTREMELY attractive to small business that do not want to invest a few thousand dollars in a server, and server software, for less than 50 people.
