The codename for the follow-up to Windows Server 2012, Microsoft’s server operating system. Windows Server Blue is expected to launch in late 2013 with the official name of Windows Server 2012 R2, and preview releases of the cloud-enabled server OS have already been made available for download.

The complete Windows Server Blue lineup will include Windows Server 2012 R2, System Center 2012 R2 (aka System Center Blue), SQL Server 2012 (SQL Server Blue) and Visual Studio 2013 (Visual Studio Blue). Pricing has not been announced to date for any of the Windows Server Blue editions.
