Can anyone confirm whether Domino 9.0.1 FP8 will run on Windows 2016 Essentials or will it only run on the Standard version ?

Many thanks,

I've not seen a statement yet on support for either

I would suggest installing 2016 on a VM, and then benchmarking it against Windows 2012 R2.

I stand corrected

I was interested to see that 2016 is not certified for IBM Traveler. Have the benchmarks improved for Domino on 2016? I had heard that 2012 R2 is a more stable and responsive platform for Domino than Windows 2016. The Prominic baseline report, now old (published August 2016), did not have good news about Domino on HyperV running Windows 2016 TP5:  https://prominic.net/2016/08/01/1955/
