Windows Storage Server 2016 introduces a staggering range of new features, below are our top 10.
Nano Server boats an amazing 92% smaller installation footprint than the WSS 2016 GUI option. If you'd like your CyberStore WSS Storage aplliance installed with Nano Server rather than the graphical user interface simply let your account manager know and you'll benefit from these advantages:
Microsoft is working closely with the Docker development team to bring Docker-based containers to Windows Server. Until now, containers have existed almost entirely in the Linux/UNIX open-source world allowing you to isolate applications and services in an agile, easy-to-administer way. Broadberry CyberStore WSS 2016 storage aplliances offer two different types of "containerised" Windows Server instances:
Secure Boot is part of the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) specification that protects the CyberStore WSS startup environment against the injection of rootkits or other assorted boot-time malware.
The problem with Windows Server-based Secure Boot is that your server would blow up (figuratively speaking) if you tried to create a Linux-based Generation 2 Hyper-V VM because the Linux kernel drivers weren't part of the trusted device store. Technically, the VM's UEFI firmware presents a "Failed Secure Boot Verification" error and stops startup.
Nowadays, the Windows Server and Azure engineering teams seemingly love Linux. Therefore, we can now deploy Linux VMs under Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V with no trouble without having to disable the otherwise stellar Secure Boot feature.
It's been a long time coming, but the CyberStore WSS 2016 range now includes a stable version of Resilient File System (ReFS) - a high-performance, high-resiliency file system intended for use with Storage Spaces Direct and Hyper-V workloads.
Storage Spaces is a a great Windows Server feature that makes it more affordable for administrators to create redundant and flexible disk storage. Storage Spaces Direct in Windows Server 2016 extends Storage Spaces to allow failover cluster nodes to use their local storage inside this cluster, avoiding the previous necessity of a shared storage fabric.
Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) is a Windows Server role that supports claims (token)-based identity. Claims-based identity is crucial thanks to the need for single-sign on (SSO) between on-premises Active Directory and various cloud-based services.
ADFS v4 in Windows Server 2016 finally brings support for OpenID Connect-based authentication, multi-factor authentication (MFA), and what Microsoft calls "hybrid conditional access." This latter technology allows ADFS to respond when user or device attributes fall out of compliance with security policies on either end of the trust relationship.
The CyberStore WSS range powered by Windows Storage Server 2016 now includes the ability to host virtual machines through Windows Server Hyper-V. This allows you to deploy additional Hyper-V hosts without needing more servers.
The CyberStore WSS 2016 now allows virtual hardware to be added or adjusted without needing to power down the VM. This allows allocated RAM to be adjusted on a virtual machine, or an additional virtual NIC to be added on the fly.
In Windows Server 2012 R2, Hyper-V administrators ordinarily performed Windows PowerShell-based remote administration of VMs the same way they would with physical hosts. In Windows Server 2016, PowerShell remoting commands now have -VM* parameters that allows us to send PowerShell directly into the Hyper-V host's VMs!
Windows Server 2016 shielded VMs allow for much deeper, fine-grained control over Hyper-V VM access. For example, your Hyper-V host may have VMs from more than one tenant, and you need to ensure that different Hyper-V admin groups can access only their designated VMs. By using BitLocker Drive Encryption to encrypt the VM's virtual hard disks, shielded VMs can solve that problem.
