Comparison of Windows server 2016 essentials vs. standard

Windows Server 2016 Essentials edition is designed for small businesses with basic IT requirements where a low workload is required. This version of the OS can serve up to 25 users and 50 devices. Inexperienced users can deploy it as their first server, while professionals can deploy the main server to create a multi-server environment. In Windows Server 2016 Essentials, there is an opportunity to get a set of advanced features and capabilities, and the price is quite adequate. In addition, there is no need for a client's license at all. The maximum allowable RAM numbers are 64 GB. CPU limits - 2 CPUs maximum.

Windows Server 2016 Standard is the standard, full-featured server OS for small and mid-size businesses to deliver less visualization. Also, this version of the OS can function as a platform for server applications (Exchange Server, SQL Server). The maximum allowable RAM numbers are 24 TB. In the price category, the standard version of Windows Server 2016 will be slightly more expensive (the difference is about $200). A maximum of 512 cores can be used. In this case, licensing is a prerequisite, and it is necessary for each user or device.

What your computer may need

If something went wrong and you lost some data, a system failure occurred that damaged important documents, you were overtaken by a virus attack or something else, you should not immediately say goodbye to this data and panic... You can still get this data back using certain applications. So, use DiskInternals Partition Recovery or RAID Recovery (if you're using RAID).
