There are 2 questions, apologies for asking them in one statement

The best benefit with running NiFi as a windows service is that it can be configured to start automatically if the system is rebooted for any reason.
I think depending on your use case that MiNiFi might be a better choice for a production flow on a windows based system.
What is your specific use case?

Thanks for the response. At present all the end points feeds their logs to a group of central windows servers and then these servers feeds to Nifi.
The use case is to start and stop Nifi automatically without any admin intervention. I have not explored MiNiFi yet, however since you suggested I will look into it.
