Windows Server 2016 Standard: For physical or minimally virtualized environments.

Windows Server 2016 MultiPoint Premium Server: Enables multiple users to access one computer; available only for academic licensing. Windows Storage Server 2016: For dedicated OEM storage solutions.
Available in Standard and Workgroup editions through the OEM channel. Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2016: Free hypervisor download. Features exclusive to the Datacenter edition include Shielded Virtual Machines, software-defined networking, Storage Spaces Direct and Storage Replica.
Standard Edition includes rights to two Operating System Environments (OSEs, or virtual machines) or Hyper-V containers. Datacenter Edition includes unlimited OSEs and Hyper-V containers. Windows Server 2016 licensing model The Windows Server 2016 licensing model includes both Cores + Client Access Licenses (CALs).
Each user and/or device accessing a licensed Windows Server Standard, Datacenter or Multipoint edition requires a Windows Server CAL or a Windows Server and a Remote Desktop Services (RDS) CAL. A Windows Server CAL gives a user or device the right to access any edition of Windows Server of the same or earlier version.
Each Window Server CAL allows access to multiple licenses of Windows Server. After the General Availability of Windows Server 2016, the business model for Standard and Datacenter editions will transition from processor-based to corebased licensing.
Core-based licensing provides a more consistent licensing metric across multi-cloud environments, improves workload portability for Windows Server through benefits like Azure Hybrid Use Benefit, and helps remove friction across different licensing models.
