Now Available: Windows Server 2016 TP5 Comparison Guide for Download

I'm happy to announce the public download of a detailed capability comparison guide for Windows Server 2016 TP5, with previous version of Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2008 R2.


This feature comparison guide compares selected features of Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012 R2, and Windows Server 2016. Its goal is to help customers understand the differences from the version they are running today and the latest version available from Microsoft.
The comparison table includes comments about each feature, as well as notation about how well each feature is supported in each release.


This is a fantastic resource and will help you details about new features in Windows Server 2016, and help your IT Business make focused decisions on why investing in Windows Server 2016 is a great decision. The comparison guide document is available publicly on our Windows Server 2016 page as a download under the Technical Resources section, and here is the direct link to the document download as well.


Happy Reading!

    I’m quite sure I am failing somewhere but in every fresh install of Windows Server 2016 TP5 I can try to install the “Service Fabric” feature is always missing.
    – with or without “Cumulative Update for Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 5 (KB3157663)”
    – with both English and Italian languages

    ..and, obviously, without the feature “Service Fabric” it is quite hard to setup a Service Fabric Cluster.

    Someone over there to help me please ?

    1. have you searched online? I came up with this: If you still have issues, I’d recommend you contact tech support for help with the installation.
