BranchCache can help you optimize Internet usage, improve performance of networked applications, and reduce trac on your wide-area network (WAN).
- NIC Teaming
NIC Teaming, also known as load balancing and failover (LBFO), allows multiple network adapters on a computer to be placed into a team for bandwidth aggregation or trac failover to prevent connectivity loss in the event of a network component failure.
- SMB Multi-channel
SMB Multichannel enables le servers to use multiple network connections simultaneously. It facilitates aggregation of network bandwidth and network fault tolerance when multiple paths are available between the SMB 3.0 client and the SMB 3.0 server.
Data Access & Protection
- Work Folders
A new feature that facilitates the BYOD (bring-your-own-device) scenario by enabling users to access work les from their personal computers and devices. Organizations retain centralized control over their data and can specify device policies such as encryption and lock screen password.
- DFS Replication
Enhancements include increases in scalability, the ability to do database cloning and corruption recovery, a Windows PowerShell module, a new WMI provider, faster replication on high bandwidth connections, and recovery tools for conicts.
- Failover Clustering
Failover clusters provide high availability and scalability to many server workloads. These include server applications such as Microsoft Exchange Server, Hyper-V, Microsoft SQL Server, and le servers. The server applications can run on physical servers or virtual machines.
- Storage Spaces
Storage Spaces delivers Software Dened Storage (SDS). Easily group multiple hard drives into a storage pool and protect data in the pool, without the need to understand RAID. Storage Spaces enables cost-eective, highly available, scalable, and exible storage solutions for business-critical deployments.
- Data Deduplication
Controls data growth by removing duplicate data. Allows the server to eciently store, transfer and backup less data.
Server Virtualization Deployment
Windows Server Hyper-V oers a scalable and feature-rich virtualization platform that helps organizations of all sizes realize considerable cost savings and operational eciencies. Using Windows Storage Server 2016 Standard, you can take advantage of new hardware technology, while still utilizing the servers you already have.
- OEM Appliance OOBE (out-of-the-box experience)
Enhancements include added support for four-node cluster deployments and a wizard for creating a domain controller within a Hyper-V VM that can be used to deploy a turnkey cluster-in-a-box.
- iSCSI Target Server
Improvements to iSCSI Target Server include support for VHDx (VHD 2.0) virtual hard disks for capacities of up to 64 TB. iSCSI Target Server also now supports SMI-S, enabling end-to-end provisioning using System Center Virtual Machine Manager.
Improvements to the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol include better SMB Direct performance, automatic rebalancing for Cluster Shared Volumes (CSV) on scale-out le servers, shared VHDx les, Hyper-V Live Migration over SMB, SMB bandwidth management, detailed event messages, and more.
