Windows Server 2016 Training
Beginners video training course for Microsoft Windows Server 2016.
Microsoft Windows Server 2016 was specifically developed to serve as a platform for running networked applications. Windows Server 2016 was released for general availability on Oct. 12, 2016, and is still the workhorse OS running on the majority of Windows servers.
Windows Server 2016 is actually part of the Windows NT family of operating systems. Server 2016 included several new features, such as identity management and enhanced security capabilities designed to help organizations access data safely if stored locally, in the cloud, or in a hybrid cloud. Microsoft Windows Server 2016 has had three successors, including Windows Server 2019, Windows Server 2022, and the Windows Server Semi-Annual Channel. Windows Server 2016 is the successor to Windows Server 2012 R2.
Server 2016 inluded many new and upgraded features such as:
- Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) provides secure identity federation and Single Sign-On (SSO).
- Hyper-V providing management of virtual networking adapters and memory for virtual machines as well as shielded virtual machines that minimize tampering.
- Nano Server is optimized for use in private clouds and data centers, as well as running web services, such as DNS or IIS.
- Windows Defender application is installed by default in Windows Server 2016 in order to help detect and neutralize malware threats in real time with automatic updating.
- PowerShell 5.0 retains its backward compatibility while introducing new cmdlets and modules for remote management and scripting of clients, servers, and applications.
This course is aimed at running you through the most common features included in Server 2016. You can follow along using a Virtual Machine and a free trial version.
Microsoft MTA Server Exam Pass
Ross used our Windows Server Certification training program to pass his exam on the first try. Most students take two or three attempts to pass the exam ($100 per attempt).
Passing the Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) Server exam proves you can support Windows Server 2016 (tested in the exam). It's the perfect exam to pass if you want to work in network support, helpdesk, server support or in a Network Operation Center (NOC).
You need to install Windows Server 2016 onto a virtual machine and spend several hours exploring the features. We show you how to do all of this and more. You can use an evaluation version for your practice.
