Windows Server 2016 Support

windows_server_2016

Windows Server 2016 is a server operating system developed by Microsoft as part of the Windows NT family of operating systems, developed concurrently with Windows 10. It helps small- and medium-sized businesses deliver greater value to their organizations by enhancing virtualization, networking, storage, user experience, cloud computing, and automation. The solution focuses on 3 main areas: firstly, providing a comprehensive cloud-based platform to support data centers; secondly, cutting costs while enhancing overall efficiency; and lastly, enabling BYOD (bring your own device) policies.

Windows Server 2016’s newest features include:

  • Nano Server - a headless, GUI and command prompt-free Windows Server installation option that features 93% smaller VHD size, 92% fewer critical bulletins and 80% fewer reboots.
  • Server and Hyper-V Containers - isolate applications from underlying OS to improve application deployment and reliability.
  • Docker Support - an open-source engine used for building, running and managing containers.
  • Nested virtualization - enables you to run Hyper-V within a Hyper-V virtual machine without limiting the Hyper-V role on a physical server.
  • Host Guardian service - allows you to protect virtual machines and data from unauthorized access – even from Hyper-V administrators.

Benefits of Windows Server 2016 Support include:

  • Two versions of Windows Server (Standard and Datacenter) simplifying CIO management
  • Data deduplication helps eliminate up to 90% of duplicated space across operating system installations
  • Cortana, Microsoft’s new virtual assistant that helps you complete daily tasks such as making calls or scheduling reminders
  • Streamline data flow and flexibility while saving money due to diskless server boots
  • Enhanced Hyper-V 3.0, doubles as a VMware killer which helps with the data center virtualization
  • Dynamic Access Control helps enforce domain-level security measures to maintain proper network security
