What’s New in Windows Server 2016

Advances You Can’t Get Anywhere Else

by Melissa Curtis | 11.01.16

With Windows Server 2012, there wasn’t much that distinguished Windows Server Standard and Windows Server Datacenter beyond the licensing details. Microsoft really decided to shake things up and introduce new features that would change that with their release of Windows Server 2016.

Roaming Rights, Windows VDA, and You

Key Changes to Virtual Desktop Access Licensing

by Melissa Curtis | 04.19.16

For years now, Microsoft has offered virtual desktop access (VDA) through Software Assurance. Soon, this feature will no longer be available.

If you’re like me, sometimes it feels as if life revolves around Microsoft licensing. I love digging into the details—and one thing that I was slightly surprised to see in Microsoft’s product terms was that roaming rights were retired for Windows Enterprise and Windows VDA. You may ask, “What does this mean?” Well, it means that you may have to change the way that you license your environment.

Windows 10 Updates and the Enterprise

What It Could Mean in Practical Terms

by Lane Shelton | 08.04.15

Windows 10 represents a significant evolution in the relationship between deploying the Windows OS and licensing the Windows OS. We’ve already seen other major changes to Windows licensing: the introduction of the user-based subscription, the ability to purchase an upgrade license to Windows Enterprise without the need for Software Assurance—and there are more changes to come. One of the most significant changes specific to Windows 10, however, is the way you’ll be consuming updates. Until Windows 10, there’s always been something of a dividing line between security updates and features updates. Security updates are quick and ongoing, while the features updates are rolled into big groupings—and deploying those is usually a heavy lift for IT.

When you go to the grocery store, you probably bring a list of items you plan to buy. When you go on vacation, you may checkmark the sites you want to visit in a guidebook directory. If you’ve got kids involved in a variety of activities, you’re likely to fill in your weekly calendar with the dates, times, and locations of where each of them has to be at any particular moment.

As you no doubt know, support for Microsoft Windows Server 2003 is coming to an end. It’s been a great 12 years, but it’s time for a change—and a change to Server 2012 will keep your organization safe under Microsoft’s watchful eyes for years to come. But it’s not as simple as just pushing a button.
