I have read some articles and discussion about the process for patching sharepoint server 2016 on-premises and the differences in patching sharepoint 2013 and 2016. now i could not find any official documentation, but seems that there are 3 main points to mention:-
- For SP 2016 Microsoft will release new CU each month, which is similar to 2013.
- For SP 2016 Microsoft will no longer provide separate security updates for sharepoint. and all the updates will be provided inside the whole CU. while in SP 2013 we can install a full CU or only install separate security updates.
- For SP 2016 we can patch the farm with zero downtime, while this option is not available in SP 2013.
so can anyone adivce if my above 3 points are correct? and are there other differences i need to know. as currently i am preparing a documentation on how SP 2013 and 2016 are being patched and how we need to manage them?
