Windows Server 2016 is available in many different editions. All of these cater to businesses and organizations with unique needs, offering affordable features. When you outgrow these features, you need to look for new ways to accommodate for the growth and success of your work. This is where the Datacenter edition shines best, catered to provide for larger businesses.

Windows Server 2016’s licensing model includes both Cores and CALs. Every user or device is required to have either a Windows Server CAL or a Windows Server and RDS CAL in order to be able to access the licensed server. The product you’re currently viewing allows you to instantly add 2 Cores to your arsenal.

Scale your business by expanding the number of employees and devices working with your server by purchasing Windows Server 2016 Datacenter 2 Core with Software Assurance.

Unlock the ability to use the Datacenter edition on a larger scale and take advantage of features that help your business move forward. Unique and improved solutions make it possible to work faster, further secure your data, virtualize workspaces, and much more.

What is Software Assurance?

Software Assurance provides benefits for customers that help with making your organization better and more productive. Microsoft offers 24/7 support for customers with this license, as well as the latest software releases. Plan ahead, deploy easier and use Microsoft server solutions more efficiently.

More information about Microsoft’s Software Assurance can be found on the official Microsoft Licensing Programs website.

Take a look at how Windows Server 2016 Datacenter is able to assist you in practices needed for a successful business. All of these features make it a good investment to expand your connections and cores, as it makes your server’s powerful features more available.

  • Easy and cost-efficient scalability. Make use of the affordable licensing model of Windows Server and infinitely scale your business whenever required. Simply purchase new Cores or CALs to add new user and device connections to your server.
  • Increased memory and processor limits. With Datacenter, you're able to remove the limitations forced on hardware in less-capable editions of Windows Server 2016. Push these limits aside and utilize up to 24 TB of physical memory, as well as 12 TB of virtual memory. Use this to increase the performance and availability of your server far beyond previous editions.
  • New, powerful virtualization capabilities. Virtualize new workspaces and take advantage of improvements made to the virtualization process itself. With Containers becoming unlimited, you can completely isolate new or hostile applications from the virtual machines, reducing the risk of them reaching your server. The newly added Shielded Virtual Machines bring security to another level with better encryption and PowerShell tools.
  • Improved server security. Deploy multiple applications that come with your server to effectively combat threats. Windows Defender, AppLocker, Credential Guard, Remote Credential Guard, Device Guard, and the Control Flow Guard are all readily available and function to secure your server and its data against malicious attacks or malware.
  • Stable and better storage. Attacks aren’t the only source of possible loss of data. Servers, much like other services, are affected by malfunctioning hardware or software issues. This can lead to a devastating loss of data — unless you work with Windows Server 2016 Datacenter edition. Synchronous and asynchronous data replication, Failover Clustering, and much more await you.
  • New Nano operating system. Run the new Nano operating system option in the cloud. This lightweight operating system allows you to greatly reduce the risk of critical security issues and problematic system reboots.

How long does it take to receive my order?

As soon as we are able to successfully process your payment, you will receive a download link for your product and a Product Key. This process is usually between 15-20 minutes. If your order is delayed long than this, please refer to your Save On It account for the details of your purchase.

What is a digital download and how does it work?

A digital download is an electronic version of your software product, giving you access to download and use your new software immediately. This means that a physical CD or DVD disc is not included with your purchase. The software install program is downloaded through cloud-based storage.

What are retail software products?

Retail software products are the same physical items you would purchase at your local software stores. They are packaged for retail sale and usually include the original box, physical CD or DVD disk(s), a manual, the paper license agreement, and an Activation Key/Code. Similar to OEM software, a Retail Product is licensed for use on one computer only.

Retail Product and OEM software licenses are designed to install and activate on one computer only, unless otherwise specified.

Is it possible to upgrade Windows Vista to Windows 7, 8 or 10?

Absolutely, you can upgrade Windows Vista to a more recent Microsoft Windows edition. However, this process will require a 'Clean' or 'Parallel Installation', followed by selecting a “Custom-Install” process. Please refer to your machine's hardware specification for more information on installation.
