Stress-free transition to the cloud
Windows Server 2019 Datacenter is designed to work with your current setup for an easy, stress-free transition to the cloud. The software comes with a special two-part license that includes both Cores and Client Access licenses (CALs).
Multiple licences of Windows Server
Each user and device in the company connected to a Windows Server Standard, Datacenter or Multipoint edition of Windows Server will require a Windows Server CAL or a Windows Server and a Desktop Services (RDS) CAL. A Windows Server CAL will allow the user or device to access multiple licenses of Windows Server including the most current installed version as well as previous editions of the software.
Features and Benefits
Features exclusive to the Windows Server 2019 Datacenter version include
Unlimited OSEs / Hyper-V containers
Hyper-V containers and their dependencies reside in Hyper-V VMs and provide an additional layer of isolation.
Core functionality of Windows Server
Server Core provides a low-maintenance environment capable of providing core server roles.
SDN facilitates network management and enables programmatically efficient network configuration in order to improve network performance.
It boasts a 92% smaller installation footprint than the regular installation option.
Storage Spaces Direct
Storage Spaces Direct takes internal storage from servers within a cluster and pools them together to give a highly resilient and scalable software-defined storage.
Shielded Virtual Machines
Protects a Hyper-V second-generation VM from access or tampering by using a combination of Secure Boot, BitLocker encryption, virtual TPM and the Host Guardian Service.
Unlimited Windows Server containers
Windows Server containers share the underlying OS kernel, which makes them smaller than VMs because they don't each need a copy of the OS.
Host Guardian Service
Configures guarded hosts and running shielded VMs in Windows Server and System Center Virtual Machine Manager.
