Windows Server 2016 Essentials is the cloud-ready operating system that supports your current workloads while introducing new technologies that make it easy to transition to cloud computing when you are ready. It is ideal for small businesses.
Ideal for small businesses
Windows Server 2016 Essentials Edition is a cloud-connected first server system that is ideal for small businesses with no more than 25 users and 50 devices.
2016 Essentials is an excellent option for customers currently using the Foundation edition, which is not available with Windows Server 2016.
New features of Windows Server 2016 Essentials
Some of the new features integrated with Windows Server 2016 Essentials include:
Azure Site Recovery ServicesMaintain business continuity
Azure Virtual NetworkEasy transition to cloud computing
Larger Deployments SupportIncreases the manageability of domains, users, and devices
Azure Site Recovery Services
When a virtual machine that is protected from threats stops working, or the host server that it all runs on fails, Azure Site Recovery Services allows users to maintain business continuity until the virtual machine or host server on-premises is repaired and made available.
Real time replication Azure Site Recovery Services allows a replication of your virtual machines (VM) to be done in real time
Sending VM image in backup vaultAzure Site Recovery Services sends a replication of your virtual machines (VM) to a backup vault in Azure
If your server or site goes down due to faulty hardware or another failure, you can fail-over with Azure Site Recovery so that the virtual machine image stored in your backup vault will be provisioned as a running VM in Microsoft Azure.
Combined with an Azure Virtual Network, client PCs that previously connected to the server on-premises will connect to the server running in Azure.
Azure Virtual Network
Move an organization to the cloud
As organizations transfer their workloads to cloud computing, they seldom move all of their resources all at once. They instead move some resources to the cloud and keep some on the premises. It's much easier to move an organization to the cloud in stages over time. Azure Virtual Network integration provides the network infrastructure that makes that process seamless and manageable.
Larger Deployments Support
Some medium-sized businesses need more functionality and capacity to implement Windows Server Essentials.

The beauty of this product is the minimum buy in. You don't have to purchase extra client access licenses to get client machines connected, this product has 25 built in. So everything you need to get a small company networked and online for business is contained in Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Essentials - Open License. The price is ok, especially if you buy it from my choice software, and the customer support from both MyChoiceSoftware and Microsoft are very good, so we never had any issues with Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Essentials - Open License.
This has worked well for my home network that consists of 3 Windows 10 machines. I am running it on an old Core2 Quad with 8 GB of memory and it's rarely a little slow but that's expected with such old hardware. Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Essentials helps me to develop and manage with agility thanks to Windows Server and Hyper-V containers. I love the ability to enhance security and reduce risk with multiple layers of built-in protection, and with the increased security, everything is perfect.
