New features in Windows Server 2016
In terms of licensing, a lot has changed compared to the previous versions. With Windows Server 2016, this is no longer done processor-based, but core-based.
Please note the following:
- Each processor must be licensed with at least 8 cores
- Each server must be licensed with at least 16 cores.
With Windows Server 2016 Standard Licenses, you receive two licenses for Windows Server instances for each complete licensing of the hardware. This article is an additional license for 4 processor cores under Windows Server 2016 Standard. The basic license for 16 or 24 cores is required as a basis.
Overview of functions:
Additional security levels
Improve security in your server structure and reduce risk with multiple integrated layers of protection
New deployment options
Improve availability and reduce resource utilization with the slim Nano Server.
Windows Server and Hyper-V containers enable flexible development and management.
Create a highly available and scalable software-defined memory and save costs
Use software-defined networks for automation with cloud-like efficiency.
The most important innovations in detail:
Physical and virtual machines benefit from improved time accuracy through improvements in the Win32 time service and Hyper-V time synchronization service. Windows Server can now be used to host services that comply with future regulations that require 1 ms UTC accuracy.
Innovations in Nano Server. Nano Server now has an updated module for creating Nano Server images. In addition, there is greater separation of functionality for physical hosts and guest VMs, and you benefit from support for different editions of Windows Server. The Recovery Console has also been improved. These improvements include the separation of inbound and outbound firewall rules and the ability to repair WinRM configuration.
remote desktop services
With a highly available RDS deployment, you can use Azure SQL database for your remote desktop connection broker in high availability mode.
Identity and access
New identity features enhance the ability to protect Active Directory environments. In addition, organizations can migrate to cloud-only or hybrid deployments where some applications and services are hosted in the cloud and others are hosted locally.
Management and automation
Management and Automation focuses on tool and reference information for IT professionals who want to run and manage Windows Server 2016 (including Windows PowerShell).
Windows PowerShell 5.0 includes important new features-including support for class development and new security features-that extend the functionality, improve the user experience, and make it easier and more powerful to control and manage Windows-based environments. See Windows Management Framework (WMF) 5.0 RTM Release Notes Overview for details.
The new features for Windows Server 2016 include the following: PowerShell.exe can run locally on Nano Server (not just remotely), new cmdlets for local users and groups replace the GUI, new PowerShell debugging support, and new support in Nano Server for security logging and auditing and JEA.
Software defined networks
You can now both mirror traffic and route it to new or existing virtual devices. Combined with a distributed firewall and network security groups, you can dynamically segment and protect workloads in a similar way to Azure. You can also deploy and manage the entire software-defined network stack using System Center Virtual Machine Manager. And you can use Docker to manage Windows Server container networks and assign SDN policies not only to virtual machines but also to containers. For more information, see Plan Software Defined Networking Deployment.
TCP performance improvementsThe
default Initial Congestion Window (ICW) has been increased from 4 to 10 and TCP Fast Open (TFO) has been implemented.
TFO reduces the time required to establish a TCP connection, and the increased ICW allows larger objects to be transferred in the initial burst. This combination can significantly reduce the time required to transfer an Internet object between the client and the cloud.
To improve TCP behavior during recovery after packet loss, TCP: Tail Loss Probe (TLP) and Recent ACKnowledgement (RACK) have been implemented. TLP helps convert RTOs (Retransmit TimeOuts) to fast recoveries, and RACK reduces the time it takes for fast recovery to retransmit a lost packet.
