Extend Datacenter To The Cloud
Only Microsoft offers consistent hybrid services, including a common identity platform with Active Directory, a common data platform built on SQL Server technologies, and hybrid management and security.
Add Built-In Hybrid Management Capabilities
Windows Admin Center delivers an elegant, browser-based view of Windows Server workloads running on-premises and in Azure. Easily connect Windows Server deployments to Azure services and use natively integrated services such as Azure Backup and Azure Site Recovery without disrupting applications and infrastructure.
Manage Privileged Identities
Many breaches can be prevented by protecting administrator credentials. Windows Server 2019 ensures that all apps and system components have just enough access privilege.
Secure The Operating System
Discover and address security breaches with integrated Windows Defender Advanced Threat Detection. Help prevent host intrusion with Windows Defender Exploit Guard, which locks down devices against attack vectors and blocks behaviors commonly used in malware attacks.
Secure Fabric Virtualization
Protect VM workloads from unauthorized access, with Shielded Virtual Machines for Windows Server or Linux workloads. Protect network traffic with the flip of a switch with Encrypted Subnets.
Modernize Apps Faster With Container Support
Windows Server 2019 delivers a smaller Server Core container image for speedier download and offers enhanced support for compute, storage, and networking of Kubernetes clusters and the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
Improve Linux Operations
Building on previous support to run Linux and Windows containers side by side, Windows Server 2019 reduces complexity by enabling developers to use standard tools such as Open SSH, Curl, and Tar.
