Windows Server 2016 is the server counterpart of Windows 10. After 2.5 years of development, it was released on 2016-10-12 and succeeds Windows Server 2012 R2. It is the server counterpart of Windows 10 Anniversary Update. It was succeeded by Windows Server version 1709 in the semi-annual channel and Windows Server 2019 in the long-time servicing channel.

As with Windows 10, it now uses a new periodical release system, and as a result many builds after the RTM still identifies itself as Windows Server 2016. Builds for the multiple updates can be seen on their respective pages.
