Buy the Windows Server 2019 DataCenter Core Add-On and optimise systems
Companies which purchase the Windows Server 2019 DataCenter Core Add-on acquire additional core licenses for their Windows Server 2019 DataCenter installation. Since moving to per-core licensing in 2015, the DataCenter Core Add-on offers a cost-effective means of system operation. This is the most powerful server operating system from Microsoft to date and builds on the strengths of the DataCenter edition of Windows Server 2016.
Companies benefit from numerous exclusive functions and also have the opportunity to build a powerful and stable network environment in a "hybrid cloud scenario". The overall package includes improved virtualisation of Linux servers and better integration with Microsoft Azure, as well as improved container images and additional security options.
Linux optimisation, container images, and Express updates
In Windows Server 2019, for the first time, enterprises will benefit from significantly improved integration and virtualisation of Linux servers running Windows Server 2019 DataCenter. Part of this integration is, among other things, the safeguarding of the Linux system via "shielded VMs". Previously, this option was only available for Windows servers. Another new feature is the integration of Linux distributions directly into the Windows installation via Windows Subsystem. This allows Linux servers to be managed directly from Windows servers using all standard Linux commands.
Also in terms of container images, companies which purchase the Windows Server 2019 DataCenter Core Add-On benefit from new features such as the significantly reduced image size of around 5 GB to approximately 1.7 GB. In addition to the two "nanoserver" and "windowsservercore" images, the current software release provides a new image called "windows" with more advanced functionality. Hybrid container environments can now also be operated and managed, thanks to the direct integration with Kubernetes.
The current version of the server operating system uses Express updates, just like the desktop operating system Windows 10. The updates are not only smaller than the usual delta updates, but also accelerate the entire update process by reducing the installation time and the number of restarts.
More security with Windows Server 2019 DataCenter Core Add-On
Windows Server 2019 has the answer to the growing number of threats. The comprehensive protection against dangerous root kits and zero-day attacks is particularly interesting. This is made possible by the closer cooperation of Windows Server 2019 with Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), which specialises in threats without known signature files. Through its intelligent cloud connection, the mechanism also protects against threats that are not recognised by many conventional anti-virus programs. With improved encryption of virtual machines and network traffic, enterprise data is more secure on Windows Server 2019 than on the predecessor version of the Redmond software company.
Other benefits for companies purchasing the Windows Server 2019 DataCenter Core Add-On
- Integration with Microsoft Azure: The almost seamless interaction between Windows Server 2019 and Microsoft Azure allows users to back up data in the blink of an eye. It is also possible to connect clusters to Microsoft Azure and back up data using "Azure Backup".
- Storage Migration Assistant: The new Storage Migration Wizard also helps Windows Server 2019 DataCenter Core Add-On users when migrating data and file servers to Windows Server 2019 DataCenter. Since migration can be performed in the current version of various devices, the cost of the process is lower than ever before.
- Hyperconverged infrastructure: Hyperconverged infrastructures are the current trend in server applications. With its latest server operating system version, Microsoft drives this trend in many ways, including simpler deployment and management methods.
