121 C H A P T E R 6 | App Plat C H A P T E R 6 App Plat In Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview, Microsoft takes a focused approach when it comes to offering an App Platform for our customers. With the introduction of two new technologies, Nano Server and containers, you can now take advantage of a highly optimized, scalable, and secure experience for App Plat technologies. Nano Server By Andrew Mason Nano Server is an exciting new installation option for Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview that has an even smaller footprint than the Server Core installation option. In this section, I explain what Nano Server is, why it was created, and how you can deploy and manage it. Understanding Nano Server Nano Server is a new, small-footprint, headless installation option for Windows Server 2016. It is a deep refactoring of Windows Server that is optimized for the cloud. As such, Nano Server in Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview is focused on two primary scenarios: the Microsoft cloud platform system (compute and storage hosts) and the platform for born-in-the-cloud applications. Because Nano Server is focused on these two scenarios and is fully headless, it might require some changes to management and operations procedures for organizations that aren't fully managing their current server deployments remotely. Windows Server customers have provided this feedback: Restarts have a negative impact on my business—why do I need to restart because of a patch to a feature I never use? When a restart is required, my servers need to be back in service as soon as possible. Large server images take a long time to deploy and consume a lot of network bandwidth. If the operating system consumes fewer resources, I can increase my virtual machine density. We can no longer afford the security risks of the "install everything everywhere" approach.
