Windows Server 2016 - 3 Case Studies

Windows Server 2016 is a server operating system developed by Microsoft as part of the Windows NT family of operating systems, developed concurrently with Windows 10. The first Technical Preview became available on October 1, 2014 together with the first technical preview of System Center. Unlike previous Windows Server versions, which were released simultaneously with the client operating system, Windows Server 2016 was released on September 26, 2016 at Microsoft's Ignite conference and became generally available on October 12, 2016.

The cloud offers IT organizations opportunities to flourish under a new model that delivers faster time to value and innovation. Many organizations, however, face strict compliance or business requirements. For organizations that need it all—security, efficiency, and innovation—Microsoft claims that Windows Server 2016 delivers it. 

Windows Server 2016 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. Below are three customer stories from Windows Server 2016 earlier adopters.

Rackspace Hosting

Hoster uses Shielded VMs to Help Security-sensitive Customers Move to the Cloud

Rackspace Hosting, one of the biggest names in managed hosting, prides itself on providing customers with Fanatical Support, which means the uniquely best cloud solution and experience for every customer. However, the most security-conscious organizations would not host with Rackspace (or anyone) out of concern that Rackspace administrators could access their data. With the introduction of the Windows Server 2016 operating system, Rackspace was able to put that sales-blocker to rest. 

Using Shielded Virtual Machines and the Nano Server installation option in Windows Server 2016—augmented by Microsoft System Center 2016 and Microsoft Operations Management Suite for better security monitoring—Rackspace can move customers into a private cloud with the highest level of security assurance. And help them reap all the economic and scalability benefits of cloud computing.

Tyco International

Tyco Keeps Life-safety Monitoring Applications Running without Interruption Using Windows Server Containers and Docker

Tyco is the eyes and ears of thousands of companies around the world. It provides fire and security protection for sprawling corporate campuses, retail stores, universities, and even ships at sea. To keep its eyes and ears open, Tyco has to ensure that its monitoring systems are up and running around the clock. And that quickly takes us into the complex world of software application construction. Tyco is taking advantage of Windows Server 2016, and in particular Windows Server Containers in conjunction with the Docker Engine, to first containerize legacy applications and later re-architect them into microservices. 

This one-two software punch will give the security giant the ability to update large, older applications in a modular fashion and keep monitoring applications running continuously. It also lets Tyco scale applications to handle larger monitoring loads and run those applications in the cloud to reduce costs. Systems run smoothly so everyone can sleep better at night.

Rakuten, Inc.

Rakuten Group Secures Sensitive Data with Virtual Desktop Infrastructure

The Rakuten Group, based in Tokyo, is one of the largest and best known brands in Japan. It spans online retail, banking and credit, travel, securities, and entertainment. In recent years, it has grown by leaps and bounds globally through corporate acquisitions. 

In order to integrate these various businesses, Rakuten has turned to Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Remote Desktop Services (RDS). Not only does RDS provide an easy path to integrating heterogeneous systems, but it also provides an additional layer of security so new systems do not compromise Rakuten’s existing corporate infrastructure.
