Worry about Nano Server Future ...

Occasional Contributor

I'm really worry about future of Nano Server. I read this article on technet and I have many doubts about.

I think this is a really bad idea "downgrade" Nano Server as a standalone server. There are many escenarios that is perfect, DNS Server, IIS Server, Storage Server, Hyper-V host, Container host, Azure Server, Host Guardian Server, and many many others. Limit Nano Server to a Container is really sad.

What about headless is great ! Less surface of attack, more secure ! Small footprint and less services running ! Nano Server is the future of cloud server ! Please reconsider that decission, If we want to use Server Core, Full desktop or Nano Server, let us decide, please. I love Nano Server and I expend many hours testing and making manuals like this.

Hope Microsoft Server Team consider this post.

Completely agree.

Anybody that cares about this issue should give their feedback to Microsoft.
Posting here and/or at uservoice are both good options:

Whoever took over from Snover needs to communicate.
I agree. I think that its a bad idea to limit Nano's exposure in Window's Server's stronghold - ENTERPRISE!
