|IT organizations are expected to do more with less, but an aging infrastructure with little automation becomes a hindrance to moving forward. Meanwhile, security breaches make front page news and reputations suffer. As if that weren’t enough, executives and IT managers also need to support the ability of developers to build business-enabling apps and services that work on-premises or in any cloud.
How does an organization balance this array of competing needs and position itself to better respond to market changes?
When an organization moves to Windows Server 2016, it gains an operating system that delivers layers of security for
the applicationsand infrastructure that power its business. To support efficiency and agility, Windows Server 2016 is packed with software-defined datacenter (SDDC) technologies inspired by Microsoft Azure. And while security and efficiencies can help keep the lights on, it’s innovative applications that can change industries. Window Server 2016 is built for this type of innovation. Organizations gain access to technologies that re-invigorate the apps they run today and set them up to build ground-breaking new applications using containers and microservices architectures.
