Integration with Azure Site Recovery Services

Azure Site Recovery Services, offered in Microsoft Azure, enables real-time replication of your virtual machines (VM) to a backup vault in Azure. In the event that your server or site goes down due to a hardware or other failure, you can fail-over with Azure Site Recovery Services so that the VM image stored in your backup vault will be provisioned as a running VM in Azure.

Integration with Azure Virtual network

Azure Virtual networking is a service offered in Microsoft Azure that enables organizations to create a point-to-point (P2P) or site-to-site (S2S) virtual private network. This makes the resources that are running in Azure (such as virtual machines and storage) look as though they are on the local network for seamless application and resource access.

Support 500 users and 500 devices

Windows Server 2016 Essentials supports 500 users and 500 devices. Making this possible is an update to the provider framework and object list controls so they cache and quickly render large user and device object lists. In addition,a search and filter feature has been added to quickly find the user or device you may be looking for.
