Microsoft: Faster releases for a faster world – First semi-annual release of Windows Server


September is always an exciting month for those of us at Microsoft who work in the Windows Server business. September means Ignite, which is always packed with opportunities to connect with great customers and unveil exciting announcements. And this year is no exception!

Today we are excited to announce the launch of the first release of Windows Server to ship in the Semi-Annual Channel. We call it version 1709 (get it? 2017, ninth month?) and it’s a really important step in the evolution of Windows Server. With releases every six months, the Semi-Annual Channel is designed to deliver continuous innovation for customers who want to take advantage of new operating system capabilities at a faster pace.

Windows Server 2016 was a significant release for us as it set us on a path of continuous innovation and delivery for this product in much the same way many of you are modernizing your applications. It’s only been a year since the launch and we’re pleased to deliver many cool new features so quickly. While our work continues to span investments across the application platform and virtualization infrastructure, for this specific release you’ll see a majority of investments accruing to applications, particularly those built on containers and microservices.
