Where you apply Windows server?

1. Dear colleagues please share the experience where it is used for Windows Server (other than IIS for asp.net and active directory)?
2. Is it worth to spend time on his deep study?
Would be useful any advice.
Thank you in advance!

Where you apply Windows server?
Applications lot -often as an office server small organization - AD, filipovica terminal. Walk into any office and he's probably used.
For enterprise infrastructure, storage servers, database servers, virtualization.
To organize cloud infrastructure for hosting web services.

Is it worth to spend time on his deep study?
Who knows what you should do?
  • If you are the driver of the bus, far from IT - probably not worth it.
  • If you are a web service on Django - well, probably also makes no sense.
  • If you are a system administrator and your job is to administrate Win servers, or the infrastructure with their presence -then I think.

Used in many places. In addition to the fact that you have already described - virtualization (Hyper-V, MSSC, etc.), databases (MSSQL), file server, application server (1C, sharepoint), mail server(Exchange), terminal server and more.
So if you want to do enterprise is to teach clearly.

The enterprise and the Linux ecosystem can be just other tasks.

Besides Linux is more universal: how enterprise, technology and startups.

I would recommend a beginner to learn the basics of both ecosystems and to choose the one that like best. - otho.Mraz23 commented on June 26th 19 at 14:21

Windows Server in the average business(and above) is used, where necessary flexible IT infrastructure.
It unless you consider Windows Small Business Server necessary to build a network of small companies (up to 75 users or computers).
