Exchange 2016 on Windows Server 2016 Standard or Datacenter?

Hi all.
We're deploying Exchange 2016 on-premises with 1 DAG across 2 sites.

Looking back in time, I know that in  Windows Server 2008R2, we had to use the Windows Server Enterprise version because the Windows Server Standard version did not have the Cluster feature.
But now, Windows Server 2016 Standard seems to come with the Failover Clustering feature.

My questions are:
1. Do we need to install Exchange in Windows Server 2016 Standard or Datacenter to have a DAG??
2. Is the Windows Server Standard "Clustering feature" enough or does the Windows Server Datacenter version have more Clustering features/capabilities?
3. Are there any other underlined features on Windows Server Datacenter version that we would need for Exchange 2016?

Thank you all.
