We have been promised that it was coming out...I even heard from somebody in the company a month ago that October 15th was a date being tossed around, but tomorrow brings November.
We just spent over half a million dollars to convert our infrastructure to Nutanix with the understanding that we'd be able to run 2016. Half of our infrastructure is already on 2016. As it stands, VMs hosted on 2016 are NOT backwards compatible. Once they're on 2016, they have to stay on 2016. Our cluster gets racked and stacked next week.
It was originally supposed to be September from what I understand. Now it's just "Q4". Server 2016 has been out for over a year now...If we're going to spend this kind of money, I feel like the company should be obliged to at least give us some information. Is it coming out in a couple weeks? Is it delayed? Why is it delayed? Just throw *some* clarity on the matter. The silence is not good customer service. There is an entire thread about this, with several people looking for answers....the thread has been marked solved even though there hasn't been an answer.
First impressions are big, guys. Can you throw us a bone?
