Microsoft Windows Server 2016 was designed to support both traditional applications, as well as new cloud-native applications and DevOps workflows. Jeffrey Snover and Jeff Woolsey provide a great overview of the new options available today with the cloud-ready operating system:

  • The Nano Server configuration reduces the size of the OS deployment by 25x and dramatically reduces start times and reboots.
  • Windows Server Containers and enhancements to management and PowerShell create new options for modernizing and managing today’s applications.
  • New architectures for packaging, repositories, configuration, operational testing, and secure operations to minimize the friction between Devs and Ops and maximize the velocity of code deployment.
