Storage Spaces Direct uses standard servers with local storage to create converged or hyper-converged storage architectures. • Create affordable business continuity and disaster recovery among datacenters with Storage Replica synchronous storage replication. • Ensure application users have priority access to storage resources using quality-of-service features. Windows Server 2016 delivers key networking features used in the Azure datacenters to support agility and availability in your datacenter. • Deploy and manage workloads across their entire lifecycle with hundreds of networking policies (isolation, QoS, security, load balancing, switching, routing, gateway, DNS, etc.) in a matter of seconds using a scalable network controller. • Dynamically segment your network based on workload needs using a distributed firewall and network security groups to apply rich policies within and across segments. Layer enforcement by routing traffic to virtualized firewall appliances for even greater levels of security. • Take control of your hybrid workloads, including running them in containers, and move them across servers, racks, and clouds using standards-based VXLAN and NVGRE overlay networks and multi-tenanted hybrid gateways. • Optimize your cost/performance ratio when you converge RDMA and tenant traffic on the same teamed NICs, driving down cost while providing performance at 40G and beyond. Support application innovation Windows Server 2016 delivers new ways to deploy and run your applications – whether on-premises or in Microsoft Azure – using capabilities such as Windows containers and the lightweight Nano Server deployment option. • Windows Server Containers bring the agility and density of containers to the Windows ecosystem, enabling agile application development and management. • Use Hyper-V Containers for a unique additional level of isolation for containerized applications without any changes to the container image. • Use the lightweight Nano Server deployment option for the agility and flexibility today's application developers need. It's the perfect option for running applications from containers or micro services. • Run traditional first-party applications such as SQL Server 2016 with best-in-class performance, security and availability. Windows Server 2016 editions Windows Server 2016 Datacenter: for highly virtualized datacenter and cloud environments. • Includes new datacenter functionality including shielded virtual machines, software-defined networking, storage spaces direct and storage replica. Windows Server 2016 Standard: for physical or minimally virtualized environments. Windows Server 2016 Essentials: for small businesses with up to 25 users and 50 devices. © 2016 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. This data sheet is for informational purposes only.

Azure Hybrid Use Benefit 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 only pay the base compute rate.
