Server 2019

Microsoft’s latest Server version is 2019 which replaces 2016, and there’s lots of exciting new features, but if you have one or more Windows 2912 or 2016 Servers, will Microsoft’s new server OS be worth the upgrade?

Two things in the new release of Windows Server it is very cloud focused and many of the improvements are aimed at large companies.

Some of the new features are support for Docker and Windows Containers, improvements to Nano, Software-Defined Networking and Virtual Network Appliances. And prior to the release of TP3, Windows Server 2016 already included improvements to Hyper-V, storage, and networking, such as Storage Spaces Direct and DNS Policies.

But if your small or medium business is already running Windows Server 2012 R2, it’s unlikely that there’s much to tempt you into upgrading when Windows Server 2016. The exceptions to that rule may be if you require on-site storage or virtualization with failover capability, but that’s beyond what most SMBs deploy on-site because of the skills required to support it.

Will Windows 10 and Windows Server 2019 be better together?

Microsoft have long been trying to persuade us that client and server operating systems running the same underlying version of Windows work better together

Microsoft focusing on the cloud

As Microsoft pushes organizations to move to the cloud, it wouldn’t make sense to demand that SMBs have Windows Server 2019 running on premise to benefit from features new in Windows 10. Windows Server 2019 is all about the cloud — both public and private — and DevOps, so you can upgrade to Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise without touching on premise servers. .

If you do need to maintain servers on site, moving to Server 2019 is likely to be beneficial at some point, to get security updates once Windows Server 2012 R2 is no longer supported, and to take advantage of features beneficial for SMBs that won’t be present in the RTM build.
