What’s new in Windows Server 2016
Windows Server 2016 differentiated Standard and Datacenter licenses. The functions available to Datacenter users are mentioned below:
- New storage functions (including Storage Spaces Direct and Storage Replica)
- New shielded Virtual Machines
- The new network stack
The features enabled in new editions are designed for virtual environments. It should also be noted that Windows Server 2016 supports Docker-powered Windows Server containers
Fortunately, Windows containers are available without any additional licensing and do not have any restrictions regarding the number of running instances. The storages are expected to be available on Pro and Enterprise Windows 10 version, starting from the 1607 (Anniversary Update) one.
