Windows Server 2019 embraces Hybrid Cloud and more
Mar 22, 2018
Microsoft is set to roll out Windows Server 2019 in the second half of this year, Communicate Better can reveal.
The exciting new release will focus on four broad features: improved hybrid cloud support, increased security, application platform improvements, and what Microsoft calls "hyper-converged infrastructure."
Speaking about the hybrid cloud factor, Erin Chapple - Windows' Director of program management - said: "We know that the move to the cloud is a journey and often, a hybrid approach – one that combines on-premise and cloud environments working together – is what makes sense to our customers.”
Chapple believes Windows Server 2019 will offer businesses a hybrid approach to support running applications on-premise that can make use of cloud native services such as artificial intelligence and the internet of things (IoT).
"Hybrid cloud enables a future-proof, long-term approach – which is exactly why we see it playing a central role in cloud strategies for the foreseeable future," she said.
From a security standpoint, the new operating system will also provide Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), revealed Chapple. “This gives customers access to deep kernel and memory sensors, improving performance and anti-tampering, and enabling response actions on server machines,” she added.
Another highlighted feature is Project Honolulu, a web-based client that allows admins to control both Server and Azure cloud machines through a single portal.
“With Windows Server 2019 and Project Honolulu, customers will be able to easily integrate Azure services such as Azure Backup, Azure File Sync, disaster recovery, and much more so they will be able to leverage these Azure services without disrupting their applications and infrastructure,” confirmed Chapple.
Preview versions of Windows Server 2019 are available now to Windows Insiders.
