Hybrid Cloud Integration with Microsoft Windows Server 2019
Windows Server 2019 makes the Azure stack accessible to organizations of all sizes for creating on-premises networks, private cloud solutions, or hybrid systems that combine on-prem IT assets with resources hosted on private and public clouds.
The majority of today's businesses deploy a combination of local and cloud-hosted IT assets to get the right trade-off of control, economy, performance, reliability, and security they require. For some fields, regulations require that specific classes of resources and information be managed locally. In other cases, company policies or legacy applications require mission-critical software to be hosted from a local data center. Windows Server 2019 provides a cloud-friendly solution that permits you to build and administer powerful hybrid ecosystems that transparently access resources spread across on-premises data centers and the cloud.

A Good Time to Migrate
The introduction of Windows Server 2019 coincided with the notification of End-of-Support (EOS) status for Microsoft's popular Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 products. This means there will be no more security patches onsite, no other enhancements, no free support options, and no downloadable technical updates. Because of this, security will become increasingly challenging, maintenance costs and effort may go up, and network stability may suffer.

The Server with Desktop Experience option is a full installation and features a comprehensive GUI for local management. Progent's experts can help your business to determine the versions and installation options most appropriate for your situation, understand Microsoft's licensing requirements, and pick an efficient on-premises, cloud, or hybrid network architecture.
