At Wiresoft you can find the Windows Server 2019 Datacenter 2-Core package as used software - at a significantly lower price than the corresponding new software - which offers all Datacenter-typical features regarding functionality, performance and security. Detailed information about the powerful features of Windows Server 2019 Datacenter as well as the Microsoft licensing terms with 2-Core packages is provided in the following overview.
Windows Server 2019 Datacenter - for virtually unlimited virtualization
The Windows Server 2019 Datacenter edition takes virtualization capabilities - as well as data and application security - to a new level: in addition to many enhancements and additions to features already known from the previous version, it includes the ability to create software-defined HCI (hyperconverged) infrastructure platforms, which offer many advantages in Server- and Desktop- virtualization, because they are not only easier to implement and manage, but also to scale, simplifying the deployment of even complex IT infrastructures.
What added value does Windows Server 2019 Datacenter offer?
Basically, the Windows Server 2019 Edition Datacenter offers the maximum in virtualization capabilities - which is why it is particularly suitable for those companies where this plays an important role alongside associated higher IT workloads. In the Datacenter edition, the number of virtual machines and Hyper-V containers that can be run is unlimited, with a RAM limit of 24 TB. For this, the following important features are also available with maximum functionality:
Enhanced protection in the Cloud with Shielded Virtual Machines
Shielded VMs (Virtual Machines) enable the creation of highly secured virtualization infrastructures. Virtual Server are thus secured in such a way that data and applications stored in a public Cloud are reliably protected against unauthorized access or use. Existing VMs can also be converted to Shielded VMs and protected Linux VMs can also be created. The installation of Shielded VMs is done with the Server-Manager, in the Windows Admin Center or via PowerShell.
Software Defined Networking
In Windows Server 2019, the Software-Defined Networking (SDN) feature enables centralized configuration of both physical (such as routers, switches and gateways) and virtual network devices and elements (such as Hyper-V virtual switches, Hyper-V network virtualization and RAS gateways) as well as their dynamic management. Existing SDN-compliant devices can be used to achieve greater integration between the physical and virtual networks, as network layers are no longer tied to network devices. Windows Server in doing so, 2019 Datacenter Edition provides the ability to peer and seamlessly connect two networks, as well as firewall monitoring.
With SDN is possible, for example:
- Dynamically create, secure and connect networks
- Define policies to control physical and virtual networks
- Scale network policies
- Accelerate deployment of workloads
- Minimize network security risks
- Encrypted Networks for secure encryption of virtual networks via Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS)
Software-Defined Storage (SDS) in Windows Server 2019 decouples storage hardware from storage software. This allows data storage to be managed, scaled and provisioned independently of the underlying storage hardware. This also allows it to be easily replaced or expanded without changing operations, which also contributes to cost efficiency.
In Windows Server 2019 Datacenter, the Storage Replica feature is available without limitation. This supports both synchronous and asynchronous replication of data, effectively preventing its loss at the file system level. While synchronous replication mirrors data at physical locations with fail-safe volumes, asynchronous replication between locations uses network links with higher latency. Disaster Preparedness and Recovery (DR) also minimizes the risk of downtime.
Storage Spaces Direct (S2D)
Storage Spaces Direct combines the local data storage of Server into a virtual cluster. Its nodes can connect different physical data carriers or data carrier systems, and communication between them takes place via the SMB protocol. S2D thus offers increased fail-safety, so that even several cluster nodes can fail in the event of a large number without the cluster itself being affected.
In addition to the simple implementation and management of software-defined storage (SDS) systems, Storage Spaces Direct also enables the creation of scalable, highly available storage systems, whereby the Server storage can be used independently of its hardware and thus more efficiently.
Other new features of Windows Server 2019
In addition to these exclusive features of Windows Server 2019 Datacenter Edition, the following key features are also available to enterprises:
Comprehensive Analysis with System Insights
Supported by a machine learning model, the predictive analytics feature System Insights is available in Windows Server 2019. This provides insights into the operation of locally deployed Server by analyzing their performance indicators and events to make accurate predictions that can help reduce the effort involved in reactive administration of Windows Server instances, thereby helping to reduce operational costs.
Kubernetes and Linux support
In Windows Server 2019, Kubernetes and Linux are now better supported: Linux and Windows containers managed with Kubernetes can now be used in parallel as a result. New functions such as container networking are also available for Kubernetes, and individual images have also been improved here.
Higher protection of data and network with Azure Services
The reliable protection not only of data, but also of network infrastructures, is becoming increasingly important in companies. In Windows Server 2019, powerful functions such as Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) with Exploit Guard and Domain Controller are available for this purpose.
Here, the hybrid features available in Windows Server 2019 enable improved protection of on-premises Active Directorys as well as easier use of Microsoft Azure services - so that closer collaboration between Windows Server and Azure Services enables easy synchronization of data or data backup, including with:
- Azure Backup
- Azure Site Recovery
- Azure Update Management
- Azure AD Banned Passwords
- Azure AD Password Protection as well as
- Azure Network Adapter
This connects a local Server with a virtual Azure network in the Azure Cloud. The Storage Migration Wizard also facilitates Server migration including data to Cloud, where Azure File Sync can act as the storage location.
Hardware requirements for running Windows Server 2019 Datacenter
The Windows Server 2019 software is based on Windows 10. To ensure trouble-free and secure operation of Windows Server 2019 Datacenter, the hardware used must meet the minimum requirements listed below. In addition, the actual requirements also depend on the respective system configuration as well as the installed applications.
- Hard disk space: 32 GB
- RAM space: 512 MB
- Memory for Server desktop display: 2 GB
- Processor architecture: x64
- Processor speed: 1.4 GHz / 64 bit

Licensing with Windows Server 2019 Datacenter 2-Core
When licensing servers with Windows Server 2019 Datacenter, the Microsoft licensing regulations must also be observed for used software, which uses the number of cores as a benchmark for the calculation. The following provisions apply:
General Microsoft License Terms for Windows Server 2019 Datacenter
Microsoft Server-Software such as Windows Server 2019 Datacenter is always initially licensed on a physical hardware basis. In addition to the number of physical Core-processors, the number of virtual Server is also counted. One Server license always covers two physical processor cores. The Microsoft license terms are based on a minimum number of 8 cores Pro processor - regardless of whether the existing hardware has fewer than 8 cores. In addition, Pro physical Server is based on a minimum of 2 processors = 16 cores.
If a Windows Server company has a higher number of cores than 16, then these can also be flexibly licensed with 2-Core packages to Windows Server 2019 Datacenter.
Other licensing requirements for Windows Server 2019 Datacenter
In a Hyper-V environment, all processors are licensed that correspond to the physical processor cores. Specifically, the edition Windows Server Datacenter entitles execution of an unlimited number of Hyper-V instances. The prerequisite for this is, as already stated, that all corresponding processor cores of the server have already been licensed.
No license is required for Linux instances in the Datacenter edition.
In addition to the Windows Server license, all clients - User and end devices - that access Windows Server 2019 must also be equipped with a client access license (CAL). Also User and Device CALs are available at Wiresoft cheap used.
