Microsoft Server 2016 Essentials versus Standard

Is there a recommendation between Microsoft Server 2016 Essentials versus Standard?


there is not much price difference, so I recommend the Microsoft Server 2016 Standard version because it allows to increase in power by adding more cores.

Essential is for Small businesses with basic IT requirements; very small or no IT department,  some features are automatically installed/configured . Microsoft allow on Essential only one physical or one virtual installation for max. 2 physicals CPUs, 
RD Gateway service is installed and configured, other remote services (including RD session host) are not supported.
