Book Preface

Major Changes in Windows Server 2016

Most of the major components of Windows Server 2016 have new features, enhancements, and changes for Windows Server 2016. With that said, most of the changes involve improvements to existing services and the introduction of new features. Throughout the chapters, we will look at some of these new features in detail. The following major changes represent the changes that we feel stand out from the rest:

Nested Virtualization With nested virtualization, a brand new feature for Windows Server 2016, you can deploy a Hyper-V host inside of a VM. This simplifies the process for testing failover clustering and for testing a variety of virtualization-related features and configurations. Note that nested virtualization is best suited for nonproduction environments, such as a lab environment. See Chapter 3 for more information.

Shielded Virtual Machines This new feature enhances the security of Hyper-V hosts and VMs. It protects against scenarios such as malicious administrators trying to view the console or trying to view the data on the virtual hard disks. See Chapter 3 for more information. Device Guard and Credential Guard These new features protect Generation 2 VMs against exploits. See Chapter 8 for more information.

Privileged Access Management (PAM) PAM enhances the security of Active Directory Domain Services environments by completely changing the way many administrators manage their environments. See Chapter 9 for more information. Storage Spaces Direct This new feature provides a highly available and highly scalable storage solution using local server storage. See Chapter 4 for more information. Software Defined Networking (SDN) There are many new enhancements to networking in Windows Server 2016. SDN enables you to configure your on-premises environment like Azure and manage it using System Center Virtual Machine Manager. See Chapter 5 for more information.

Containers Containers are a feature that offers a way for app teams to have a prepackaged way to deploy app environments quickly (for example, IIS with ASP.NET). The container contains everything an app team needs—and the container is portable; it can run on-premises or in the public cloud. See Chapter 7 for more details. Nano Server When Microsoft introduced the Server Core installation of Windows Server,

it was lauded for the small size, small requirements, high performance, and enhanced security. Nano Server went a step further (albeit with more limitations). Initially, it was just a smaller footprint deployment, without a GUI, that could run some core roles such as Hyper-V and Scale-Out File Server. However, recently Microsoft announced some big changes for Windows Server 2016 (release 1709). With 1709, Nano Server will no longer support the core roles such as Hyper-V. Instead, it will be dedicated for containers and be geared for the cloud. Nano Server is introduced in Chapter 1.
