Lync 2013 Now Supported on Windows Server 2012 R2!

Lync 2013 on Windows 2012 R2 is now supported!

Sweet!

Microsoft indicated this month that Lync Server 2013 is now supported on Windows Server 2012 R2.

Support is enabled by applying an update that was released this month, according to a Microsoft blog, posted late last week. However, the update, as described by Microsoft's Knowledge Base article 2809243, omits mentioning the new server support. It just describes 13 fixes to Lync Server 2013.

Lync Server 2013, which is Microsoft's unified communications solution, hit release-to-manufacturing status in October of last year, with Microsoft indicating that general availability release was planned for the first quarter of 2013. However, the general availability of the product actually happened shortly after the RTM release, according to a Microsoft spokesperson, via e-mail.

Lync Server emerged from Microsoft's earlier Office Communications Server product back in 2007. The idea back then was to offer "more capabilities at lower cost than PBX systems," according to B.J. Haberkorn, director of Lync product marketing for Microsoft, in a blog post. Since then, it's been a slow path toward that PBX rip-and-replace vision, but Microsoft has been making some inroads. Last month, Kevin Turner, Microsoft's chief operating office, said that Lync is used by 90 of the Fortune 100 companies. In addition, Microsoft's fiscal-year 2014 Q1 financial report indicated that Lync sales grew "30 percent."
