What is Windows Server 2019 Essentials
Windows Server 2019 Essentials is designed for small companies with up to 25 users and 50 devices. It’s worth noting that Microsoft encourages its users to move beyond Windows Server Essentials to Microsoft 365, which is the company’s newest solution for small business customers. According to their documentation, Microsoft 365 offers new functionality for data storage, sharing, protection, and so on. Windows Server Essentials, nevertheless, has enough features to satisfy the needs of a small infrastructure.
The 2019 Essentials edition also makes it possible to integrate with Azure Virtual network. Moving an organization’s resources to the cloud can be a complicated issue. The right way is to allow enough time for this process and perform it step by step. Windows Server 2019 Essentials, in turn, makes the resources and processes that are running in Azure look as if they are located on your local network. This allows organizations to seamlessly move their resources to the cloud.
Azure Site Recovery Services
When a virtual machine that is protected from threats stops working, or the host server that it all runs on fails, Azure Site Recovery Services allows users to maintain business continuity until the virtual machine or host server on-premises is repaired and made available.
Sending VM image in backup vault
Azure Site Recovery Services sends a replication of your virtual machines (VM) to a backup vault in Azure
Real time replication
Azure Site Recovery Services allows a replication of your virtual machines (VM) to be done in real time
Azure Virtual Network
Move an organization to the cloud
As organizations transfer their workloads to cloud computing, they seldom move all of their resources all at once. They instead move some resources to the cloud and keep some on the premises. It's much easier to move an organization to the cloud in stages over time. Azure Virtual Network integration provides the network infrastructure that makes that process seamless and manageable.
Create virtual private network
Azure Virtual networking is a service that enables organizations to create a point-to-point (P2P) or site-to-site (S2S) virtual private network that makes resources that are running in Azure (such as virtual machines and storage) look as though they are on the local network for seamless access to applications and resources.
Larger Deployments Support
Some medium-sized businesses need more functionality and capacity to implement Windows Server Essentials.
Increases the manageability of domains, users, and devices
Windows Server 2019 Essentials provides increases the manageability of domains, users, and devices by adding support for larger deployments with multiple domains and domain controllers as well as ability to specify a designated domain controller. Instead of paying full price for a new Windows Server virtual machine, you'll only pay the base to compute rate.
