Hardware Developer Portal
is now open for
Windows Server 2016
submissions to allow vendors to have their products listed in the
Windows Server Catalog
with Windows Server 2016 Technical and Production Previews. Compatibility is exclusive to Windows Server 2016 Technical and Production Preview versions. To be listed as
, products must be tested by using the
supported versions of the HLK
and must pass all necessary tests.
products can be used by customers running Windows Server 2016 Production Preview versions prior to the RTM release of Windows Server 2016.
Vendors will also need to
their products for the RTM release of Windows Server 2016 once the certification program opens.
products listed in the Windows Server Catalog will remain visible to the public until 90 days after the release of Windows Server 2016, after which Technical and Production Preview support will end, and
listings will be removed. Microsoft will provide more information on the Windows Server 2016 Certification Program as it becomes available.
