WHAT'S NEW WITH 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. The first early preview
version (Technical Preview) became available on October 1, 2014
together with the first technical preview of System Center.Unlike
previous Windows Server versions, which were released
simultaneously with the client operating system, Windows Server
2016 was released on September 26, 2016 at Microsoft's Ignite
conference and became generally available on October 12, 2016
Security built-in at the start
Reduce risk with multiple layers of security right in the operating
system for on-premises and cloud protection.
Enhance security with Windows Server 2016
Rely on new layers of protection built into the operating system to
further safeguard against security breaches. Help block malicious
attacks and enhance the security of your virtual machines,
applications, and data.
Virtualize without compromising security
Use Shielded Virtual Machines to help protect your virtual machines
from a compromised fabric as well as improve your compliance.
Shielded Virtual Machines are encrypted using BitLocker and will
run on healthy hosts.
Protect administrator credentials
Help guard administrator credentials from Pass-the-Hash attacks by
using Credential Guard and Remote Credential Guard. Limit
administrator privileges with Just-In-Time Administration and Just
Protect the applications that run on your operating system,
anywhere it’s deployed
Enhance the protection of your applications on-premises or running
in the cloud. Help ensure only trusted software runs on the server
with Device Guard. Help protect against memory corruption attacks
with Control Flow Guard. Help protect against known malware with
Windows Defender optimized for server roles.
Detect security threats quickly
Help detect suspicious behavior in the kernel or other sensitive
processes with advanced auditing capabilities. Plus, use Microsoft
Operations Management Suite Insights & Analytics tools to set
up alerts and reporting.
Increase application isolation
Help protect container-based applications with Hyper-V containers.
Use the distributed firewall, a software-defined networking
capability, to control internal and external network traffic to
Improve compliance and security
Learn how Windows Server 2016 can help you can meet high-priority
compliance requirements and security objectives such as PCI DSS
3.2, ISO 27001, and FedRamp more efficiently.
Get the hypervisor that’s ready for the cloud when you are
Migrate more easily to the cloud with the hypervisor that runs
Azure, the world’s largest datacentre. Rely on a Windows Server
2016 platform that’s not only recognized by Gartner as a leader in
x86 server virtualization, but has analysts saying will change the
competitive dynamic for virtualization.
Save when you migrate workloads to the cloud with Hyper-V
Run your workloads on Hyper-V, then easily migrate them from
on-premises to a Windows Server virtual machine in the cloud.
Rely on unique built-in security for virtualized workloads
Use Shielded Virtual Machines to encrypt your virtual machines with
BitLocker and help ensure they run only on hosts approved by the
Host Guardian Service.
Microsoft has been reorganized by Satya Nadella, putting the Server
and System Center teams together. Previously, the Server team was
more closely aligned with the Windows client team. The Azure team
is also working closely with the Server team.
In March 2017, Microsoft demonstrated an internal version of Server
2016 running on the ARMv8-A architecture. It was reported that
Microsoft was working with Qualcomm Centriq and Cavium ThunderX2
chips. According to James Vincent of The Verge, this decision
endangers Intel's dominance of the server CPU market. However,
later inquiry from Microsoft revealed that this version of Windows
Server is only for internal use and only impacts subscribers of
Microsoft Azure service.
