Introduction

Windows Server has powered a generation of organizations, from small businesses to large enterprises. No matter what your role in IT, you can be guaranteed you that have touched Windows Server at some point in your career or at very least you have seen it from afar! This book introduces you to Windows Server 2016, which is the next version of Windows Server. No matter what your area of expertise, this book will introduce you to the latest developments in Windows Server 2016.

Each chapter has been written by either field experts or members of the product group, giving you the latest information on every improvement or new feature that is included in this version of Windows Server. This information will help you to prepare for Windows Server 2016 and give you the means to develop and design a path to introduce Windows Server 2016 into your environment and take full advantage of what is to come. This book is being written at a time when the product is still evolving and it should be noted that things might change or not appear in the final version of Windows Server 2016 when released. All guidance in the chapters is meant to be tried and evaluated in a test environment; you should not implement it in a production environment.

This book assumes that you are familiar with key concepts surrounding Windows Server (i.e., Microsoft Hyper-V, Networking, and Storage) as well as cloud technologies such as Microsoft Azure. In this book, we cover a variety of concepts related to the technology and present scenarios with a customer focus, but it is not intended as a how-to or design manual. You can use other sources, including the online Microsoft resources, to stay up to date with the latest developments on the roles and features of Windows Server 2016. The online resources will also contain the latest how-to procedures and information about designing a Windows Server 2016 infrastructure for your business.

        Except it will still handle and look like a pdf which can be troublesome when converting to any of those formats. Text wont fit right, menu might not work, etc.
        If they had released it like epub then it could easily be converted to any other format…

  52. Alejandro Giunta says:

    Thanks!

  53. Tiziano says:

    Thank you very much

  54. JeffreyBrew says:

    For waht it’s worth, I’d like to see the ebook released in epub and mobi formats as well. I have a Kindle Oasis I bought specifically to take backpacking with me. It’s smaller and lighter than any tablet and has at least a months of battery life… versus hours of battery life with tablets.

    I agree with Marlon, pdf files on Kindle devices, especially the ‘page white’ Kindles, are not a good combination. I think the only advantage a pdf file has is the original publisher intended formatting is preserved which includes an annoyingly fat border between the text and the edges of the screen. A mobi version of the ebook would allow the text to reflow to the edges of the screen and allow me to choose a smaller font size to get more text on the screen. Both of these would result in fewer ‘page turns’ (screen refreshes) which, in turn, results in longer battery life. Since page white Kindles only use power refresh the screen, the fewer times I have to change pages, the longer the battery lasts.

    Thank you.
