Learn Windows 2012 with DO?

  • Posted March 1, 2015

I’m currently taking an MCSE class and feel access to a VM would cement what I learn in the classroom.

If I buy a used server, I’d be looking at $200+ electricity costs to run and space. (still with mom and contributing, but don’t want to spin the meter…)

If I ran a droplet , could i run my copy of windows server 2012 on the droplet and access the GUI? would I have to virtual box this for ubuntu? This seems like a good alternative as there’s only 9 more weeks to the class vs having to have the server until I can resell it .

I get the impression that I’m thinking of doing too much with this and it seems like it’s more geared towards websites and fileshares. But it does’nt hurt to ask!

no.

You could run Virtualbox or VMWare on your home computer. Not too difficult to set that up…
