new Free ebook: Introducing Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview

Hi everybody,

Microsoft recently publish a new free eBook. This time about the Windows Server 2016 Technical Prview.

You can download it here.

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

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

This book assumes that you are familiar with key Windows Server concepts (i.e., Hyper-V, networking, and storage) as well as cloud technologies such as Microsoft Azure. In this ebook, 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 guide or design manual. You should 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 Technical Preview. The online resources will also contain the latest how-to procedures and information about designing a Windows Server 2016 infrastructure for your business.
