Windows Server 2016 - What is a Nano Server?

Posted by Ashwin Venugopal

Nano Server is a remotely administered server operating system and is optimized for private clouds and datacenters. This is significantly smaller than Core Server and has no local logon capability.
This Nano Server installation option is available for Standard and Datacenter editions of Windows Server 2016.

Nano Server can be used for the following scenarios:
  1. Compute host for Hyper-V virtual machines, either in clusters or not
  2. Storage host for a scale-out file server, either in clusters or not
  3. DNS server
  4. Web server running IIS
  5. Host for apps that are developed by using cloud application patterns and run in a container or virtual machine
Thanks for reading.
