At Wiresoft you can find the Windows Server 2019 Datacenter Edition 16-Core as used software at a significantly lower price compared to new software - with all typical features regarding functionality, performance as well as security. Detailed information about the new features of Windows Server 2019 Datacenter 16-Core as well as the related Microsoft licensing terms for this Windows Server software is provided in the following overview.
Windows Server 2019 Datacenter - key new functions and features
Windows Server 2019Datacentercontains a number of enhancements over the previous version as well as additions to existing features that take virtualization capabilities as well as security to a new level: HCI or hyperconverged infrastructure platforms offer many advantages in Server- and Desktop-virtualization, they are not only easy to implement and manage, but also to scale, thereby significantly simplifying the complexity and deployment and of IT infrastructures.
What is the value proposition of the Windows Server 2019 Datacenter edition?
First of all, the Windows Server -Edition Datacenter 2019 offers the maximum of virtualization possibilities and is therefore particularly interesting for companies in which this as well as high IT workloads play an important role. The number of virtual machines and Hyper-V containers that can be operated with it is unlimited in this edition, the RAM limit is 24 TB. Other important features, some of which are only available in the Datacenter edition with maximum functionality, are:
Shielded Virtual Machines
With Shielded Virtual Machines it is possible to create highly secured virtualization infrastructures. Shielded VM isolates virtual Server in such a way that, for example, sensitive data stored in a public Cloud is reliably protected from unauthorized access or use. Server services and their data are encrypted and shielded using Hyper-V VMs. It is also possible to convert existing VMs into shielded VMs. In addition to Windows VMs, protected Linux VMs can also be created here. Shielded VMs can be installed via Server-Manager, Windows Admin Center or via PowerShell.
Software Defined Networking
The Software Defined Networking (SDN) feature in Windows Server 2019 offers the central configuration of physical network devices such as routers and switches as well as their dynamic management - in addition also of gateways - since here the network layers are no longer bound to the network devices. Existing SDN-compatible devices can also be used to achieve greater integration between the physical and virtual networks. Virtual network elements include Hyper-V virtual switch, Hyper-V network virtualization and RAS gateway.
SDN can be used, for example, to:
- Dynamically create, secure and connect networks
- Define policies to control physical and virtual networks; and
- Scale network policies
- Accelerate the delivery of workloads
- Minimize security risks on the network
The Windows Server 2019 Datacenter edition also features a number of optimizations and additions to Software Defined Networking, including firewall monitoring and the ability to peer and seamlessly connect two networks. Encrypted Networks also enables secure encryption of virtual networks via Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) to prevent unauthorized access.
Software-Defined Storage (SDS) in Windows Server 2019 offers a storage architecture whose software is separated from the hardware through virtualization to minimize their dependency. SDS also enables flexible scaling of storage capacity, which also contributes to cost efficiency.
Storage Replica in Windows Server 2019 Datacenter supports both synchronous and asynchronous replication and prevents data loss at the file system level. Synchronous replication mirrors data at physical sites with fail-safe volumes, while asynchronous replication mirrors it between sites using network links with higher latency. Disaster preparedness minimizes potential downtime in the process. Storage Replica is available without limit in the Windows Server 2019 Datacenter edition.
Storage Spaces Direct
The Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) function combines the local data storage of servers into a virtual cluster. The nodes of such a cluster can have different physical disks or disk systems, and communication between them takes place via the SMB protocol. Storage Spaces Direct not only simplifies the implementation and management of software-defined storage (SDS) systems, but also enables the creation of scalable, highly available storage systems. This allows the server's storage to be used independently of its hardware, increasing its efficiency. In addition, S2D offers increased resilience, so that if the number of cluster nodes increases accordingly, multiple cluster nodes can fail without being affected.
Other features of Windows Server 2019
In addition to these features, the following important features are also available to enterprises with Windows Server 2019 Datacenter Edition:
Support for Kubernetes
Windows Server 2019 now offers even better support for Kubernetes. Linux and Windows containers managed with Kubernetes can also be used in parallel. New features such as container networking are available for Kubernetes, and individual images have also been improved; the "Windows" container image is also available, which has a wider range of features.
System Insights analytics features
System Insights for predictive analytics in Windows Server 2019, powered by a machine learning model, enable Server to evaluate system data such as performance as well as events on it to make accurate predictions, reducing the effort required for reactive administration of Windows Server instances.
Increased protection of sensitive data
Reliable protection of infrastructure and sensitive workloads is becoming increasingly important in enterprises. Windows Server in 2019, various functions such as the Domain Controller and the aforementioned Shielded VMs will be available for this purpose. In addition, Windows Defender has been enhanced with new features such as Exploit Guard, as part of Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), this enables monitoring of and access to documents and folders located on the network. To protect on-premises Active Directorys, various Azure AD security features such as Azure AD Banned Passwords and Azure AD Password Protection are available.
Overview of other Azure services for Windows Server 2019
Hybrid features built into Windows Server 2019 provide greater integration or easier use of Microsoft Azure services in an on-premises data center - including Services such as Azure Backup, Azure Site Recovery, Azure Update Management and the Azure Network Adapter. This offers the advantage of being able to connect an on-premises Server to an Azure virtual network in Azure Cloud. The closer cooperation of Windows Server and Microsoft Azure Services enables easy synchronization of data for simple data backup. The Storage Migration Assistant not only facilitates the switch to Windows Server 2019, but also the Server migration including data to the Cloud. Azure File Sync acts as a possible storage location.
