Microsoft Windows Server 2019.


End of support for SQL Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2008.

On 14 January 2020, support for both Windows 7and Windows Server 2008 R2 will be discontinued. According to studies, every second server in Germany will be affected. In respect to the GDPR, we recommend acting sooner rather than later, because this type of migration to a modern platform needs to be well-planned and professional.

All this awaits – Windows Server 2019 highlights. 

The new Windows Server 2019 is the operating system that bridges the gap between on-premise and cloud services. Windows Server 2019 helps you expand your business and operations in the cloud. It maximises your existing investments and builds on Windows Server security app innovations and HCI features (hyper converged infrastructure) to complement your local IT investment with cloud solutions.
Purchasing new server hardware and running the latest operating system version brings SMEs many benefits in terms of service, scalability, security, and mobility, all connected to using cloud solutions. Additionally, there is also the flexibility to use on-premises or hybrid until you have fully migrated to the cloud.
Constructing a Windows Server software-defined data centre WSSD on the right hardware infrastructure is a crucial first step to success. To support the customer in this, Microsoft has worked together with hardware providers to develop Microsoft-validated software defined data centre (SDDC) designs and tried and tested processes for deployment. Microsoft partners offer a range of WSSD certified solutions that work seamlessly together with Windows Server 2019 to deploy high-performance HCI that’s as secure as it is innovative.


Windows Defender Exploit Guard.

Windows Defender Exploit Guard (Windows Defender EG) is a new set of host intrusion prevention capabilities for Windows 10, allowing you to manage and reduce the attack surface of apps used by your employees.

Windows Admin Center.

The Windows Admin Center is the modern evolution of in-box management tools like Server Manager and Microsoft Management Console (MMC). Windows Admin Center is installed locally and can be accessed using a web-browser on PCs, tablets and smartphones.


System Insights.

System Insights is a new feature in Windows Server that brings local or hybrid-cloud predictive analytics capabilities natively to Windows Server. It offers high-accuracy predictions for how the use of your servers will develop.
