Windows Server 2016 Essentials is the latest version of the Windows Server family Windows Server family of operating systems. It is originally designed to be a small network system for small business, which can hold around 25 users and 50 devices. It can also be used as the primary or main server in a multi-server environment for a group of small businesses. This was developed concurrently with Windows 10. It was released in three versions, the Essentials, Standard, and Datacenter. For this review, we’ll be focusing on the Essentials version.
Basically, Windows Server 2016 was made to be an internal virtual network for small business with a cloud-based server for the entire business. Yes, we do have the internet, but having a network server is definitely more secure, as a server like this has advanced information technology assistance, as well as security features that would protect important files and documents. A virtual network like this helps people work together, and see files being updated, and lets people see an overview of what’s being worked on, thus minimizing the risk of duplication, thereby increasing productivity.
The operating system is still very easy-to-use, a trademark of Microsoft – for this robust, new operating system with increased, yet very out-of-the-box security. New features include Remote Web Access. This version also integrates Microsoft’s Office 365, which arguably are the most useful tools for any businesses’ day-to-day life – each application in their famed office suite is used productively, incorporating the cloud system into the virtual network. On-site storage of the Windows Server 2016, hosts Exchange and Azure for a very secure backup that’s off-site. Security, which is a must for any virtual network, especially those related to business has been upgraded for Windows Server 2016.

It also includes a Credential Guard, which isolates domain credentials through hardware virtualization. There’s also Control Flow, which is used to prevent memory corruption vulnerabilities.
