After 2 years of anxiety, the time has come! At its annual Microsoft Ignite conference on Monday, Microsoft announced the release and general availability of Windows Server 2016 & Systems Center 2016. To be honest, the only channel that you can acquire a copy of the product is only through the Evaluation Center. It will be available for the masses at mid-October ( MSDN, VLS, Azure, Shops ).
