While Active Directory (AD) has been around since Windows 2000 Server, Microsoft has continued to make adjustments and introduce features in newer Windows Server releases, especially in Windows Server 2012. What’s New in Active Directory 2016 covers different AD features and the requirements to enable them.
Scalability boundaries: RID & DNT improvements, resource SID compression
Learn about two big changes made by Microsoft in Windows Server 2012, which now allow AD environments to grow more easily, and beyond the limitations encountered by AD administrators.
Deployment and migration features: Deferred index creation, virtualization safeguards, Domain Controller (DC) cloning and new promotion and upgrade processes
Microsoft has released many improvements to make DC deployment and migration better than ever. Have you ever wondered how to prevent possible issues after a schema update? Do you know how to make your DC aware of the virtual environment to prevent data loss? Have you thought about using DC cloning so you can quickly create a replica DC for DR purposes? Have you heard about the new ways to promote a machine to DC? How about preparing an automatic update for the AD domain and a forest for new versions? Keep reading this white paper, we've got you covered!
Security features: Group Managed Service Accounts (gMSAs), Kerberos Armoring (FAST), Protected Users, Authentication Policies and Policy Silos, Dynamic Access Control and Privileged Access Management (PAM)
In Windows Server 2012 and WS 2012 R2, a couple of features have been introduced to enable domain admins to further lock down their AD environments. One new security feature is the Flexible Authentication Secure Tunneling (FAST) or Kerberos Armoring. Start solving common security problems with Kerberos and make sure that clients will never return to less- secure legacy protocols or weaker cryptographic methods.
On top of all that security goodness, Windows Server 2016 brings Privileged Access Management (PAM) that allows admins to only have administrative privileges when they need them through auto-expiration of these privileges. Did you know that PAM is the only secure way you could actually regain control over a compromised AD environment without throwing it away?
Manageability features: Active Directory Administrative Center, GUIs, expanded functionality
Learn about Active Directory Administrative Center (dsac.exe), which was first introduced with Windows Server 2008 R2. Read about Active Directory Administrative Center’s serious overhaul in Windows Server 2012. In addition to providing Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) to new features in Active Directory 2012, the functionality has expanded to manage features that were previously only manageable on the command line.
Has your organization adopted a Hybrid Identity approach towards Azure Active Directory? Your AD can help get the devices your users use into Azure Active Directory with the help of Azure AD Connect and (optionally) AD FS. These features are not just Windows 10 devices, either.Read now

By now, every proficient and capable IT service provider or reseller has a good sense of how much cloud-powered data protection could matter to subscribers and potential subscribers. Those clients need to bolster their backup, recovery, and BC/DR capabilities—the cloud can enable them to accomplish such efforts more effectively and at a more reasonable cost. However, not one cloud-powered data protection solution has proven to be definitively superior.
As a service provider, you should strive to present a choice of offerings to your potential subscribers, ideally through a common management framework that is delivered via a consolidated, cohesive, relevant set of vendor solutions. Your prospects will have widely varying needs and aspirations tied to how the cloud could serve as part of their organization’s unique strategic initiatives for protecting data. Each need and aspiration is likely to be distinct, but they all can be fulfilled with the right vendor partner.
