Why Choose Windows Server 2019?
As the leader in Microsoft Windows Server software-defined solutions, DataON sees Windows Server 2019 as a springboard for organizations to hyper-converge their infrastructure and build their own hybrid cloud environment.
For organizations that are still using Windows Server 2008 and 2012, Storage Spaces Direct, a feature within Windows Server 2019, eliminates the need for expensive new SAN infrastructure. By choosing a hyper-converged infrastructure, organizations can simplify their deployments and get a highly scalable, highly resilient, highly available, and high-performance solution that outperforms a SAN at a fraction of the cost.
Windows Server 2019 is the Hybrid Cloud Platform
As more and more organizations move to the cloud and deploy hyper-converged infrastructures, Windows Server 2019 offers better cloud integration for hybrid deployments. Window Server 2019 provides functionality for hybrid cloud deployments, including better support for Azure Backup, Azure File Sync, disaster recovery and other Azure services. The features give organizations better control over how much storage they wish to backup to the cloud in a “pay-for-what-you-need” philosophy, saving considerable amounts of money. Windows Admin Center makes it easy to manage hybrid cloud deployments with Azure, core server and hyper-converged services in one centralized location. Windows Server 2019 also enables local apps to take advantage of important cloud apps like machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI).

New Windows Server Storage Migration Service
Server storage migration is difficult under any circumstance. Although, previous iterations of Windows Server offer tools to help migration, IT administrators can’t migrate servers and its data without reconfiguring applications or users. Now, Windows Server 2019 makes life a lot easier. Managed from within Windows Admin Center, Storage Migration Services (SMS) enables IT administrators to migrate unstructured data from anywhere into Azure cloud and/or Windows Servers (2003 or later). It’s fast, reliable and scalable.
Better Protection in the Cloud with Enhanced Shielded VMs
Today, virtualization security is essential in all Hyper-V deployments. Not long ago, if a VM became compromised, all VMs on the virtualization fabric were compromised. Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V introduced shielded VMs. Shielded VMs and guarded fabric enabled cloud service providers or private cloud administrators to provide a more secure environment for tenant VMs. Window Server 2019, has made shielded VMs even more secure with two new features, including host key attestation and virtual network encryption, offering IT administrators peace of mind
