What a great day! Back in June, we announced Windows Server was joining the Semi-Annual Channel release cadence to deliver innovation at a faster pace. Two weeks ago at Ignite, we announced Windows Server, version 1709, the first release in this new model, and today you can start using it!
Azure customers can deploy Windows Server, version 1709 based on the image in the Azure Marketplace. Software Assurance customers can download Windows Server, version 1709 from the Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC) portal. If you run virtual machines in a hosted environment you can also check the images that your service provider made available.
Read about it in the Azure blog.
