Windows Server

A strategic approach to help you maximize your resources.

Overview

They're common issues; poor hardware resource utilization, poor system and software level security, wasted energy. If this sounds familiar, it's probably comforting to know that we hold a Microsoft Gold Competency in Management and Virtualization. We are experts at planning and upgrading your server architecture to lower IT costs and improve resource usage.

Our strategic approach starts with customized server design and deployments. Convenient and useful management tools will transform how your IT staff manages workflows.

Windows Server 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 delivers powerful new layers of security along with Azure-inspired innovation for the applications and infrastructure that power your business.
 

More on Windows Server

  • Enable application innovation angle-down

    Realize the benefits of using containers for applications—with little or no code changes.
    • Run your existing apps on Windows Server 2016 without modifying them. Take advantage of enhanced security and efficiency features in the fabric.
    • Move your traditional applications into a modern DevOps environment with little or no code changes. Enable “write-once, run-anywhere” apps to deploy on-premises, to any cloud, or in a hybrid architecture with containers. It's consistency across dev, test, and production.
    • Combine the benefits of containers with Nano Server, Azure Service Fabric, and Windows Server for true business agility in cloud-native apps. Create microservices applications using fewer and compressed resources. Develop faster using the lightweight Nano Server installation option. And use Service Fabric to build always-on, scalable, and distributed applications to run in Azure, on-premises, or both.
  • Low storage costs angle-down

    Build highly available, scalable software-defined storage solutions at a fraction of the cost.
    • Build highly available, scalable, software-defined storage solutions at a fraction of the cost of a storage area network (SAN) or network-attached storage (NAS). Storage Spaces Direct lets you use industry-standard servers with local storage.
    • Prepare for the worst using synchronous storage replication for disaster recovery across datacenters.
    • Centrally manage and monitor storage performance, control workload access to storage resources, and keep noisy neighbors from impacting performance using storage Quality of Service (QoS) policies.
    • Use improved data deduplication capabilities to support volume sizes up to 64 TB and file sizes up to 1 TB, plus gain volume space savings of up to 90 percent.
  • Ready for the cloud when you are angle-down

    Easily make the move to the cloud with Hyper-V—the same hypervisor used by Azure.
    • Run your workloads on Hyper-V, then easily migrate them from on-premises to a Windows Server virtual machine in the cloud.
    • Use Shielded Virtual Machines to encrypt your virtual machines with BitLocker and help ensure they run only on hosts approved by the Host Guardian Service.
    • Upgrade your Hyper-V and Scale-out File Server clusters to Windows Server 2016 without worrying about downtime for your application or workload—no new hardware needed.
    • Deploy applications on multiple operating systems with best-in-class support for Linux on Hyper-V.
    • Increase availability and reduce resource usage using the Nano Server installation option—it’s 25x smaller than a full deployment of Windows Server 2016.
  • Security built-in at the start angle-down

    Reduce risk with multiple layers of security right in the operating system for on-premises and cloud protection.
    • Use Shielded Virtual Machines to help protect your virtual machines from a compromised fabric as well as improve your compliance. Shielded Virtual Machines are encrypted using BitLocker and will run on healthy hosts.
    • Help guard administrator credentials from Pass-the-Hash attacks by using Credential Guard and Remote Credential Guard. Limit administrator privileges with Just-In-Time Administration and Just Enough Administration.
    • Enhance the protection of your applications on-premises or running in the cloud. Help ensure only trusted software runs on the server with Device Guard. Help protect against memory corruption attacks with Control Flow Guard. Help protect against known malware with Windows Defender optimized for server roles.
    • Help detect suspicious behavior in the kernel or other sensitive processes with advanced auditing capabilities. Plus, use Microsoft Operations Management Suite Insights & Analytics tools to set up alerts and reporting.
    • Help protect container-based applications with Hyper-V containers. Use the distributed firewall, a software-defined networking capability, to control internal and external network traffic to virtual machines.
    • Learn how Windows Server 2016 can help you can meet high-priority compliance requirements and security objectives such as PCI DSS 3.2, ISO 27001, and FedRamp more efficiently.
