Components of System Center 2016
System Center 2016 is available in two primary editions, Datacenter and Standard. Both editions support unlimited Windows Server Containers as well as Windows Server 2016 Host Guardian Service and Nano Server. System Center 2016 Datacenter Edition also supports unlimited Operating System Environments (OSEs) or Hyper-V containers vs. two for the Standard Edition. Only the Datacenter Edition supports Storage Spaces Direct, Storage Replica, Shielded Virtual Machines, and the Windows Server 2016 Networking stack for Software Defined Networking. (For a description of these features, see Windows Server 2016 hybrid cloud solutions.)

An entry-level, cloud-based System Center 2016 Essentials Edition, which replaces the older Foundation Edition and works with Windows Server 2016, is available for small businesses and supports up to 25 users and 50 devices. To accommodate both on-premises and cloud deployments, System Center 2016 has moved from a processor-based licensing model to a core-based model.

Both the Datacenter Edition and the Standard Edition come with the same System Center 2016 stack including Operations Manager, Configuration Manager, Virtual Machine Manager, etc.
