BizTalk Server 2016: What's New, and Installation

With BizTalk Server 2016, you can expect closer integration with Azure using the new Logic Apps adapter, and connect to Azure resources using the File and WCF-SQL adapters.

One of the biggest changes is support for SQL Server 2016 AlwaysOn Availability Groups (AG). This support covers using BizTalk Server on-premises, and using BizTalk Server Azure virtual machines. With AlwaysOn, you can now have a highly-available solution using Azure virtual machines.

There have also been updates to SHA-2 support, import and export binding options for parties, Administration console improvements, and much much more.
