Windows Server 2016 || Product & License

Windows Server 2016: is a cloud-ready server operating system meticulously developed by Microsoft, seamlessly integrated into the Windows NT family and concurrently shaped alongside Windows 10. Its unveiling took place on September 26, 2016. Among the host of new features, notable mentions include robust support for Docker containers, an upgraded version of the PowerShell scripting language, and the revolutionary ability to deploy the "nano server" option. This option offers a minimal installation approach, tailor-made for cloud and container-optimized workloads. 

Moreover, Windows Server 2016 boasts the capability to run Hyper-V on both host and guest operating systems, ushering in a new era of virtualization. It introduces a Hyper-V based Shielded Virtual Machine, a security measure designed to safeguard Generation 2 virtual machines from compromised fabric. Storage spaces direct and storage replica amplify its versatility, while Active Directory and Group Policy management undergo enhancements. Pioneering a flexible and cost-efficient datacenter platform, Windows Server 2016 wields the same compute, storage, and network virtualization features powering the renowned Azure public cloud. Beyond this, it introduces layers of security akin to Azure, intertwined with innovations primed for fortifying applications and infrastructure that drive your business. 

A highlight lies in Windows Server 2016's enhancement of Active Directory environment security and facilitation of seamless transitions to cloud-only deployments or hybrid setups. The latter strikes a balance between cloud-hosted applications and services and on-premises counterparts. In essence, Windows Server 2016 redefines the paradigm of cloud-ready server operating systems, offering enhanced security, innovation, and adaptability. Embrace it as the bedrock for empowering your business with unmatched capabilities.
