Description

This is the tenth and final video in the "Ten Reasons you'll love Windows Server 2016" series exploring Nano Server and recapping the series.

Today, Matt talks to Technical Fellow Jeffrey Snover. Windows Server 2016 brings about the newest and fourth era of Windows Server - the Cloud Era. The future is in the Cloud and in order to support this we smallest possible operating system where you can selectively bring on additional components as needed. Nano Servers, at approximately 440 MB, provide customers a faster and more secure infrastructure, application and easier remote management experience.

    "and easier remote management experience"

    LOL!!!! That was a joke right?  Been playing around with TP5 Nano for the past week and we've completely given up on it.  It's an absolute nightmare to admin and there's so many quirky things with it that it CAN'T do that we can't fit it into any of our current server scenarios.

    @JEmlay: Hey - thanks for the note. We have a lot of content that will hopefully help with Nano Server, including a detailed install and management guide at: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt126167.aspx as well as our blog: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/nanoserver/. MMC can connect to Nano Server and we have a new set of Web-based remote GUI that adds remote GUI for many tasks that were local or cli only: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/nanoserver/2016/02/09/introducing-server-management-tools/ Please share any issues you are having on our TechNet Forum and we can help you out or post improvements we can make to User Voice: https://windowsserver.uservoice.com/forums/295068-nano-server - Thanks!

    Will there be a new certification series on Windows Server 2016 later this year? I would like to start with a MCSA in Windows Server, should I first start with the 70-410 exam in Windows Server 2012 R2 or wait till the new certification series and courses on Windows Server 2016 are available later this year?

    Why why why, are you implementing that container-*. It´s a security risk, and * you will be needed to build solutions around. Just problems. It´s crap. And comes from a prehistoric age!

    And for F sake, what the F is that Nano-server and non-GUI-sh1t? Do you Think terminals and Linux-sh1t is good for you? Are you "evolving" to a newer DOS-version? Buffer overflow @Microsoft

    Since we are going back to command line nano serves I think I will just go back to IBMé360 and OS360. and for a GUI I can use CICS and COBOL. so Much easier and the command lines are a lot shorter. Oh and I forgot I can start using my long forgotten JCL knowledge again. Yeah!

    I am very frustrated by the trend of moving documentation to either "talk show" videos or community driven blogs/wikis. I can't justify spending 20 minutes to learn about one of 10 features, assumeing 20 minutes each that would be over 3 HOURS to review them all. I can skim a Top 10 list and deep dive in the features that I and my clients might need in a few minutes, well under 10. This is not the first place I have run into this, but I expected much better from Microsoft. I have been managing OSes of amny different flavors since about 1995, way back to Windows NT (and SunOS 4.1.3 and RedHat 5.1 and Mac OS System 7 and ...) and Microsoft has traditionally had some of the best documentation (OK, Sun's docuemtation has also been excellant), but it seems that starting with Server 2012, as the quality of the software has been getting better and better, the documentation has suffered.

    Frustrated that I have to spend over 3 hours to find out what's new in Server 2016.

    I agree with Paul Kraus. Written documentation is much easier to get information from in a shorter amount of time.
