The latest Windows Server 2019 seeing huge customer adoption helped us understand the growing need for extending support for it with Vembu BDR Suite.
As a quick recap from one of our articles written by Virtualization Architect Brandon Lee, you can get to know the major features that were announced during the Windows Server 2019 official release.
Let’s have a quick walkthrough on some of the best features that will benefit your Hyperconvergence, Container, the Application Platforms and functionalities that could improvise security vulnerabilities.
The Hyper-converged Infrastructure
Those organizations that consider a software-defined scalable platform while scaling their environment can actually capitalize on this capability. Microsoft has clearly understood the potential of this growing billion dollar market and leveraged support for this platform.
It is ensured that the fundamentals of HCI- compute, storage and networking are improved to a great extent helping ITs scale their software-defined data centers with Windows 2019.
Handling Hybrid Clouds
Microsoft has “baked in” hybrid cloud functionality into Windows Server 2019. If you are an IT admin and you happen to manage both on-prem and Azure Windows server deployments, now it is easier to manage both the deployments via the hybrid approach built through interfaces connecting Windows Server 2019 & Windows Admin Center. This allows making use of cloud services directly from the on-premise enterprise datacenters itself. Thus, there is no doubt that Microsoft’s journey to the cloud came out as a well-executed decision that’s worth noting.
Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL)
You definitely would not have imagined Microsoft and Linux on the same page! If Windows Server 2016 was open to extending support to Linux instances as VMs- Windows Server 2019 goes one level further to providing integration for native filesystem storage, networking & security options. Besides, the support for shielded VMs that was once limited to Windows is now extended to Linux as well.
Security still continues to be the top priority and Windows Server 2019 is no exception.
You can expect a three-fold approach to security that will include:
- Protection- Securing data using shielded VMs using Windows Server 2019 and not to mention the encrypted networks that will help admins encrypt select network segments
- Detection- The Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection to detect attacks on the OS
- Response – On the response end, the story is not all about detecting what went wrong but equally includes keeping those threats at bay
Alright, now let’s get to understand how Vembu BDR Suite can help you with protecting Windows Server 2019 workloads.
