You may recall our webinar in December, in which we invited over MVP Thomas Maurer to join our own MVP Andy Syrewicze in discussing Windows Server 2016 Licensing including a Q&A. Those of you who subscribed received an accompanying eBook written by Eric Siron, who goes into great depth about Licensing a Windows Server 2016 environment. The eBook is a comprehensive look at everything a system administrator needs to fully license a Windows Server 2016 environment, and we’re now releasing it for everyone to download.
