*Academic user information is required for this product.

Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Standard is the base version of the Windows Server 2016 series and is designed for physical or minimally virtualized environments. Windows Server 2016 is a cloud-compatible operating system that supports all current workloads while introducing new technologies that make transitioning to cloud computing much easier. The system brings great new layers of security to the table and possesses Azure-inspired innovation for the applications and infrastructure that can transform the way you do business. This product provides a core license for two Microsoft Windows Server Standard 2016 cores.

The Windows Server 2016 Standard licensing model includes both Cores + Client Access Licenses (CALs). Each user and device accessing a licensed Windows Server Standard, Datacenter or Multipoint edition require a Windows Server CAL, or a Windows Server and a Remote Desktop Services (RDS) CAL. A Windows Server CAL allows access to any edition of Windows Server of the same or earlier version. Each Window Server CAL provides access to multiple licenses of Windows Server. 

When you are ready to transition workloads to the public cloud, you can leverage your existing investment in Windows Server. The Azure Hybrid Use Benefit lets you bring your on-premises Windows Server license with Software Assurance to Azure. Rather than paying the full price for a new Windows Server virtual machine, you will pay only the base to compute rate. Find more details at

Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Standard Core Open Academic - 2 Cores gives me complete access to my email and features of an operating system that is way more secure than normal, perfect for companies. I can compose emails, use and manage email signatures, send attachments, etc. Everything I need, I can do it through this software. Windows Server 2016 gives my emails a more professional feel than using my phone or tablet to compose and send email. If I need a more polished, professional feel to my message, I like using Exchange.

1 pc Issues

My previous and current employers utilize Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Standard Core Open Academic - 2 Cores throughout the entire organization to communicate both internally and externally. It helps us share information, view each other's calendars and schedule meetings easily. I shared a general email account with my team, and while my pc allowed me to easily set up my own windows Server 16 Standard account on it to check emails, the general/shared server account could only be viewed from my phone. I was unable to reply to emails from my phone.

Ultimate accessibility

I'm able to access my calendars, make appointments, set my out-of-office automated responses, and check my team's calendars through EMicrosoft Windows Server 2016 Standard Core Open Academic - 2 Cores. I don't have to sacrifice any functionality. I'd use Exchange when working from my mobile phone or on the road when my work device is unavailable. If I have my work device and computer Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Standard Core Open Academic - 2 Cores3 is available, that's what I'd prefer to use anytime anywhere.
