At the forefront of server operating systems
No doubt, Windows has been at the forefront of server operating systems and one stunning example of this is Windows Server 2016. System administrators need not look any further when choosing a server OS and here are some of the best reasons why:
Nano Server is a very tiny version of Windows Server 2016, achieved by removing the GUI component of Windows Server 2016. It boasts a 92% smaller installation footprint than the regular installation option. It is far more secure, due to the fact that you have to add server roles administratively from outside Nano Server, therefore there is less room for attacks as compared to the GUI-version of Windows Server 2016. It has far fewer updates and is so small that it can be ported easily across servers, data centers and physical sites. Although meant to be managed remotely, a minimal local management UI called "Nano Server Recovery Console," has been included to let you perform initial configuration tasks.
Linux Secure Boot
Secure Boot is part of the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) specification that protects a server's startup environment against boot-time malware and other unauthorized rootkits being run.
Nested virtualization is the capability of a virtual machine to other host virtual machines within itself. Previously, this has been impossible but this feature is now finally available in Windows Server 2016. When a business wants to deploy additional Hyper-V hosts and needs to minimize hardware costs, it can make use of Nested Virtualization.
Hyper-V Hot-Add Virtual Hardware
You can now add virtual hardware or adjust the allocated RAM to a virtual machine, without having to first power down. Virtual hardware can be hot -added while virtual machines are online and running.
Storage Spaces in Windows Server 2016 allows administrators to create flexible disk storage. It extends storage spaces to allow failover cluster nodes to use their local storage inside this cluster, avoiding the need for shared storage fabric.

Questions & Answers

Be the first to ask a question about this.
We are already using Windows Server 2016 Datacenter OEI - 24 Core Instant License in production. I've converted my test lab over to 2016 so everything new coming in will be tested on the best platform to date. There are TONS of new features that were made GREAT because of insider preview/testing/feedback. This review was solicited for a sweepstakes entry, but it's a fantastic review because of the product. I encourage everyone to give it a try.
Windows Server 2016 Datacenter OEI - 24 Core Instant License has the look and feel of Windows 10 but all the power you expect from a Server operating system. I downloaded Windows Server 2016 from the Tech Supply Shop site and immediately deployed it as a new VM. Being the first setup, I went through all the normal steps I would when configuring a new server, setting the IP address, locking down services and installing all the Windows updates.
After finishing 3 migrations and 5 fresh install setups for our clients over the last few months I can safely say they've made some good improvements from 2012. The gui is a bit easier to work with and overall nicer look and feel. I'd give it 5 stars but still encounter bugs. Windows Server 2016 Datacenter OEI - 24 Core Instant License has Better navigation and easy to work with compared to previous versions, but it still has some bugs that need to be worked out.
