HPC 2016 on Win Server 2016 Essentials RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We're going to get a server with a Windows Server 2016 Essentials license on it.

    Will we be able to install HPC Pack 2016 on it?

    In the software requirements I can find only references to Windows Server 2016, with no specifics like Essentials, Standard etc.

    Though, on other pages I've found that it can be installed on Standard and Foundation but I'm not sure if Essentials was omitted by mistake or is not supported.

    Thank you,

  • Hi,

      HPC Pack is free for use and free support through this forum. You can install on the server with Essential license. You can also install the agent on linux nodes. 

      If you need 24x7 enterprise support, you will need buy Microsoft support.
