​​What Features Come With SharePoint Server 2016 Versus 2013 Versus Office 365 Enterprise Plans E1, E3, E4 and E5, Business Plans and Education Plan?

SharePoint Server 2016 comes in three flavors: Foundation, Standard and Enterprise.  Office 365 offers plans ranging from P1 and P2 standalone SharePoint to 3 flavors of Business editions, the Enterprise E1, E3, E4 and E5 plans as well as an Education Plan.  We focus on the differences between on premise SharePoint Server versions and cloud based Office 365 SharePoint E1, E3, E4 ​and E5 versions as well as Business Essentials, Business, Business Premium and Education.  As of 9/10/16, our matrix of features available in all versions of SharePoint Server 2016 versus 2013 versus Office 365 Enterprise, Business and Education SharePoint plans are accurate and we're sure you'll agree that they are much more intelligible than the SharePoint Online Service Agreement published by Microsoft that separates the feature comparison matrix for each version of the SharePoint platform.  Office 365 E1 is licensed per seat and includes a SharePoint Server Standard CAL.  Office 365 E3, E4 and E5 plans include a SharePoint Server Enterprise CAL.  Some SharePoint features are only available online at Office 365.  By and large the most features are available at the Enterprise CAL (E3, E4, E5) level.  Office 365 E1 and on premise SharePoint Server 2013 plans are NOT identical in terms of features, given the availability of Access Services online but not on premise with Standard CAL.  SharePoint Foundation 2016 and 2013 are the free, but severely limited, version of SharePoint on premise.  The version feature comparison matrix below should help you easily identify the differences between on SharePoint 2016 and 2013 on premise (Foundation, Standard and Enterprise) as well as Office 365 SharePoint online E1, E3, E4 and E5 plans as well as the three Business editions and the Education plan.
