From the link above:

Support for large volumes
Prior to Windows Server 2016, volumes had to be specifically sized for the expected churn, with volume sizes above 10 TB not being good candidates for deduplication. In Windows Server 2016, Data Deduplication supports volume sizes up to 64 TB.

Support for large files
Prior to Windows Server 2016, files approaching 1 TB in size were not good candidates for deduplication. In Windows Server 2016, files up to 1 TB are fully supported.

Support for Nano Server
Data Deduplication is available and fully supported in the new Nano Server deployment option for Windows Server 2016.

Simplified backup support
Windows Server 2012 R2 supported Virtualized Backup Applications, such as Microsoft's Data Protection Manager, through a series of manual configuration steps. Windows Server 2016 has added a new default Usage Type (Backup) for seamless deployment of Data Deduplication for Virtualized Backup Applications.

Support for Cluster OS Rolling Upgrade
Data Deduplication fully supports the new Cluster OS Rolling Upgrade feature of Windows Server 2016.
