Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Now Runs on Amazon EC2

AWS announced the ability to run Windows Server 2016 on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) in all AWS regions globally.  The lastest version of Windows Server is supported in four distinct forms:


  • Windows Server 2016 Datacenter with Desktop Experience – The mainstream version of Windows Server with support for both traditional and cloud-native applications. 
  • Windows Server 2016 Nano Server -A cloud-native, minimal install that takes up a modest amount of disk space and boots more swiftly than the Datacenter version, while leaving more system resources (memory, storage, and CPU) available to run apps and services. 
  • Windows Server 2016 with Containers – Windows Server 2016 with Windows containers and Docker already installed.
  • Windows Server 2016 with SQL Server 2016 – Windows Server 2016 with SQL Server 2016 already installed.
