C:D 4.8: Add support for Windows 2016 core + clustered environment
At the moment, only Windows 2012 is supported in a core and/or clustered environment while more and more customers will do the move/upgrade to Windows 2016.
In the actual context, the market tends to secure more and more their environments. By using Windows Core servers, the surface of attack is reduced compared to Windows servers with GUI. With Windows core, there are less vulnerabilities linked to the GUI (and also to patch) and people are obliged to connect remotely on the Windows Core servers to perform their actions.
So it seems to be quite normal that C:D 4.8 should be supported on Windows 2016 core and in clustered environment.
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
While migrating to Windows 2016 and because of internal security policies, only specific applications (like Citrix) will be allowed to run on Windows 2016 with GUI Experience. By default, All applications should be installed on a Windows 2016 Core.
