Windows Server 2016 Editions

Before installing Windows Server 2016 you need to determine which edition to install. This will mainly be determined by how many server you have and if your using virtualization (hopefully you are). You’ll also need to decide if you need to install the server with GUI (Desktop experience), Server Core, or Nano Server.

In this video, you’ll learn about the different editions and version of Windows Server 2016.


  • Server 2016 editions
  • Standard vs Core

Recommended Tool: SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

This utility was designed to Monitor Active Directory and other critical services like Azure, DNS, and DHCP. It will quickly spot domain controller issues, replication, performance issues with cloud services, failed logon attempts, and much more.

What I like best about this tool is it's easy to use interface and instant alerting features.
