Talking about DHCP Services he showed complete demo on DHCP Configuration. Major topics discussed during DHCP sessions are Network Access Protection, Clustered Environment, Software-Defined storage for virtualization workloads and Major change in Cloud Computing.
While configuring DHCP we came to know that the DHCP Server ID must be static, not dynamic. Network Access Protection (NAP) security is not available in Windows Server 2016 as it is phased out from Windows Server 2012 R2. Clustered Computing means a group of servers and other resources that act like a single system and enable high availability and, in some cases, load balancing and parallel processing. While talking about DataCenter he pointed out some new improved features in Windows Server 2016 i.e., Improved features for Storage for Software defined DataCentre and also there is changes in Software-Defined storage for Virtual Workloads.
Few changes by Server 2016 (Software-Defined storage for virtualization workloads) :
- Storage Spaces Direct
- Storage Replica (Replication process can be of two types: Synchronous Replication, Asynchronous Replication)
- Storage QoS
- Data Deduplication
