Microsoft announced this week that Windows Server 2019 is now generally available.

Windows Server 2019 is designed and engineered to help modernize your datacenter, delivering on four key areas:

Hybrid: The move to the cloud is a journey. To make it easier to connect existing Windows Server deployments to Azure services, we built interfaces for hybrid capabilities into the Windows Admin Center. With Windows Admin Center and Windows Server 2019, customers can use hybrid features like Azure Backup, Azure File Sync, disaster recovery to extend their datacenters to Azure and Storage Migration Service.

Security: In Windows Server 2019, we extended support of Shielded VMs to Linux VMs. Enabled Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), that detects attacks and zero-day exploits among other capabilities and included Defender Exploit Guard to help you elevate the security posture of your IT environment and combat ransomware attacks.

Application Platform: In Windows Server 2019, we reduced the Server Core base container image to a third of its size. We also provide improved app compatibility, support for Service Fabric and  Kubernetes, and support for Linux containers on Windows to help modernize your app. Also with Server 2019, Linux users can bring their scripts to Windows while using industry standards like OpenSSH, Curl & Tar with the improved  Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL)

Hyper-converged Infrastructure (HCI): HCI is one of the latest trends in the server industry today. In Windows Server 2019, we democratize HCI with cost-effective high-performance software-defined storage and networking that allows deployments to scale from small 2-node, all the way up to 100s of servers with Cluster Sets technology, making it affordable regardless of the deployment scale.
