Microsoft Windows Server Essentials 2016 Digital Licence is the ideal streamlined option for small enterprises and micro-organizations with up to 25 users or 50 devices running on servers with no more than two processors. This version allows employees to connect their personal devices to the business network while IT experts deal with the risk of having uncontrolled devices linked to the network.
Simplify the migration of on-premise workloads to the cloud and quickly adjust to business changes without jeopardizing your team’s performance and productivity. With Windows Server Essentials 2016, your small business can benefit from some advanced features and capabilities at a cheap cost.
► Nano Server Option.
This was a scaled-down server implementation with limited interfaces, making it more secure from attacks.
► Azure Site Recovery Services
Offered in Microsoft Azure, this feature enables real-time replication of your virtual machines (VM) to a backup vault in Azure.
► Storage Spaces Direct
Without going over budget, create a highly scalable software-defined storage device. This technology works with industry-standard servers with local-attached disks and includes capabilities like caching, storage tiers, and erasure coding.
► Volume activation
Easily activate the licence for multiple devices online.
► Cluster Rolling Upgrade
This update allows you to upgrade the operating system of cluster nodes without stopping Hyper-V or Scale-Out File Server applications on the nodes, reducing downtime. This does not necessitate any extra hardware or a new cluster, and it is reversible unless you select the “point-of-no-return.”
► Increased manageability of domains, users and devices
Added support for bigger deployments with multiple domains, multiple domain controllers, and the option to specify a desired domain controller to assist larger small organizations take full use of Microsoft Windows Server Essentials 2016.
