Page 0 of 1 CLOUD-READY OPERATING SYSTEM Secure. Evolve. Innovate The cloud puts new demands on your organization to innovate faster in order to compete effectively. You make decisions every day about how to balance traditional IT responsibilities with cloud innovation. At the same time, your organization faces increased security threats from outside and within. For these reasons and more, organizations adopt cloud computing at different rates. Windows Server 2016 is the cloud-ready operating system that supports your current workloads while introducing new technologies that make it easy to transition to cloud computing when you are ready. It delivers powerful new layers of security along with Azure-inspired innovation for the applications and infrastructure that power your business. Windows Server 2016 Add layers of security Security is consistently rated as a top priority for IT organizations. Companies are in the news for security breaches and failing to protect their customer and employee information. The operating system lives and works at a strategic layer in your environment, making it an ideal location to introduce new capabilities for security and control. Windows Server 2016 gives you new capabilities to prevent attacks and detect suspicious activity with features to control privileged access, protect virtual machines and harden the platform against emerging threats. • Prevent risks associated with compromised administrative credentials. Use new privileged identity management features to limit access to "just enough" and "just in time" administration. And use Credential Guard to prevent administrative credentials from being stolen by "pass-the-hash" attacks. • Protect your virtual machines using the unique shielded virtual machine feature. A shielded VM is encrypted using BitLocker and can only run on approved hosts. • Protect against unknown vulnerabilities by ensuring only permitted binaries are executed using additional security features such as Control Flow Guard and Code Integrity. • Use Hyper-V Containers for a unique additional layer of isolation for containerized applications. Evolve your infrastructure RESILIENT COMPUTE Run your datacenter with a highly automated, resilient, virtualized server operating system. • Reduce your datacenter footprint, increase availability, and reduce resource usage with "just enough OS" using the Nano Server deployment option, with an image that is 25x smaller than Windows Server 2016 with the full desktop experience. • Upgrade infrastructure clusters to Windows Server 2016 with zero downtime for your workload, and without requiring new hardware, using mixed-mode cluster upgrades. • Increase application availability with improved cluster resiliency to transient failures in network and storage. • Automate server management with PowerShell 5.0 and Desired State Configuration. • Manage Windows servers from anywhere using the new web-based GUI – Server management tools – which are especially useful for managing headless deployment options such as Nano Server. • Deploy applications on multiple operating systems with best-in-class support for Linux on Hyper-V. Windows Server 2016 delivers capabilities to help you create a more flexible and cost-efficient datacenter using software-defined compute, storage and network virtualization features inspired by Azure. © 2016 Microsoft Corporation.
