Microsoft just released the new performance tuning guidelines for Windows Server 2016.
I find it odd that they refer to these tutorials as Guidelines (which means information intended to advise people on how something should be done or what something should be — according to the cambridge dictionary) and they then state in each section that these are not regarded as best practises… which makes me feel odd on these changes.
But since they are free and published already everyone can try them and get a feel on what is indeed a performance boost and what is not.
The guide organized performance and tuning guidance for Windows Server 2016 multiple categories for easy of reading/finding info:
