Windows Server 2016 TP3 in Azure
The most interesting new feature in TP3 is support for the Docker Engine, as announced by Docker. However, TP3 only allows you to use Docker containers in Windows Server. Docker containers for Hyper-V, which Microsoft announced earlier this year, are not yet available. I recommend reading Mark Russinovich on the importance of containers and how they will be implemented in Windows Server 2016. Adian Finn also wrote a good overview of Windows Server Containers.
Windows Server 2016 TP3
Another interesting new feature in TP3 is the Emergency Management Console in Nano Server, Microsoft’s new server OS without a GUI. It appears the console is for observing Nano Server and modifying the network configuration.
Windows Server 2016 will also bring quite a few enhancements for Remote Desktop Services. Most interesting here are the Personal Session Desktops, which allow you to deploy server-based personal desktops in a cloud computing environment.
Before you test TP3, you might want to have a look at the requirements. The hardware requirements seem to be quite moderate. You only need 512MB RAM, although you should allocate 800MB for installation.
Keep in mind that this is only a prerelease. Microsoft already published a list of issues.
