I'm thinking of putting Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials on my network, and then other folks will access it through VPN, but in your experience, is Essentials good for rovers and occasionally connected systems? (In other words, people would be using my VPN a lot.) Unless they came over here, that is. Or is it just better to deploy all of the roles that Essentials enables manually? (I know how to do it manually, but Essentials offers some features that not having it installed takes away, like automatic backup, health monitoring, and remote web access.) Do you find that with the Windows server Essentials Experience role installed on a standard or datacenter server, even people with lots of IT knowledge are using it? Somebody said something along those lines today. Thanks for any feedback.
