FCO services upgraded to Windows server 2012 R2 to gain better support for the Linux operating system with a plan to standardize on Hyper-V for both Windows and Linux workloads. FCO Services will be able to eliminate dual-hypervisor management and licensing costs and also reduce host-server memory costs by using dynamic memory for Linux workloads. By using dynamic memory for Linux workloads, it can also reduce memory costs and improve infrastructure utilization.
