Scheduled to be generally available in the second half of this year, Windows Server 2019 is now accessible via Microsoft's Insiders program in a Preview stage. This operating system is based on the foundation of Windows Server 2016 and is expected to have the same licensing model as its predecessor.

Yesterday, Microsoft's Erin Chapple revealed in a post published in the Windows Server Blog that Windows Server 2019 will hit the market in the second half of the year. The Director of Program Management for the Windows Server operating system also unveiled that the Windows Server 2019 Preview build can be accessed through the Insiders program of the Redmond giant.

According to the blog post mentioned above, the Windows Server team worked closely with the customers and focused on four key areas: hybrid cloud scenarios, security, hyper-converged infrastructure, and the Windows Server application platform. The highlights of these areas include Project Honolulu-based management of Windows Server with the ability to easily integrate Azure services, Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection embedded into the operating system, improvements to Windows Server containers and the Windows Subsystem on Linux (WSL), as well as System Center 2019 support and the ability to manage hyper-converged infrastructure deployments in Project Honolulu.

Project Honolulu is a browser-based platform for management scenarios that is locally deployed and has two main attributes: flexibility and efficiency. Thanks to it, clients can integrate Azure services such as Azure Backup or Azure File Sync without disrupting their infrastructure and existing apps.

Microsoft also answered a few frequently asked questions regarding Windows Server 2019. In addition to the launch date that we already mentioned, those interested in Windows Server 2019 should know that it will launch as the next Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) release with the same licensing options as Windows Server 2016. At last, they should also know that Windows Server 2019 will come alongside a Semi-Annual Channel release with a support lifecycle of 18 months and will feature the Server with Desktop Experience and Server Core installation options.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
