Windows Server 2016: A first look

Windows Server 2016: Windows Server adapted for the cloud

Source:  HPE

Server 2016 is designed for cloud deployment. Containers, Nano Server and advances in Hyper-V, software-defined storage and software-defined networking, are all designed with cloud in mind, whether public or private. Fortunately, Microsoft’s needs are a good fit with that of enterprises managing their own datacentres.

Windows Server 2016 has a lot to offer both administrators and developers, though features such as Nano Server and Windows Server containers need stronger tool support.

Note that Microsoft’s licensing model for Windows Server 2016 is now per-core, and this, combined with changes to the servicing model, will affect the cost of deployment.
