Windows Server 2019 Migration and Integration ConsultantsMicrosoft Windows Server 2019 is the on-premises version of Microsoft's flagship server operating system. Windows Server 2019 includes the enhancements to Microsoft Windows Server 2016 previously available only through the Semi-Annual Channel. Microsoft Windows Server 2019 features important enhancements in scale, throughput, management, cybersecurity, app compatibility, Linux co-existence, container networking, and hybrid integration of on-premises and cloud-hosted resources.

Headline enhancements of Microsoft Windows Server 2019 include Windows Admin Center for unifying the management of hybrid on-premises/cloud-hosted resources, System Insights for utilizing modern predictive analytics to control local networks, Windows Defender ATP (Advanced Threat Protection) Exploit Guard for host-intrusion prevention, container orchestration with Kubernetes, Cluster Sets for building and managing large high-availability scale-out clusters, and Storage Migration Service for simplifying the migration from outdated releases of Windows Server.

Progent can help you to configure Microsoft Windows Server 2019 with current releases of Microsoft's key apps by providing expert services such as Exchange Server expertise, Microsoft SQL Server 2019 integration and development expertise, SQL Server 2017 migration services, Microsoft SharePoint 2019 design and integration, and Microsoft 365 hybrid integration expertise. Progent's solution design, debugging and education support for Windows Server 2019 are available remotely and Progent also provides on-premises support in major metropolitan areas across the U.S. and Canada.

Hybrid Cloud Solutions with Microsoft Windows Server 2019
Windows Server 2019 makes Microsoft's Azure stack accessible to businesses of all sizes for building on-premises networks, private cloud solutions, or hybrid architectures that combine on-prem resources with infrastructure and services provided via private and public clouds.

Windows Server 2019 Hybrid Cloud Solutions

Windows Admin Center allows on-premises environments to access Azure cloud features

The majority of modern businesses manage a combination of local and cloud-hosted resources to deliver the right balance of control, affordability, throughput, reliability, and security/compliance they need. For some industries, regulations require that specific types of network resources and information be retained locally. In other cases, corporate standards or legacy applications necessitate mission-critical software to be run locally. Microsoft Windows Server 2019 provides a cloud-friendly platform that permits you to build and manage powerful hybrid networks that seamlessly access resources spread across on-premises data centers and the cloud.

Designing, configuring and managing optimized hybrid solutions with Microsoft Windows Server 2019 requires a broad array of knowledge and experience. This can be outside the expertise of most in-house IT staffs in smaller businesses. Progent's roster of subject-matter experts (SMEs) offers on-demand access to the skills you require for any aspect of hybrid network deployment and maintenance. Progent's Microsoft Gold-certified and Cisco-certified consultants, project managers, and information security specialists can help you to assess the advantages of Microsoft Windows Server 2019 for your company and create a hybrid environment powered by Windows Server 2019 that delivers top return on investment.

A Good Moment to Migrate
The introduction of Windows Server 2019 was accompanied by the announcement of End-of-Support (EOS) status for Microsoft's widely used Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 platforms. This means there will be no additional security patches on-premises, no non-security updates, no free support programs, and no online technical content updates. Consequently, security will be more difficult, maintenance costs may go up, and system stability may suffer.

If your business could use assistance upgrading to Microsoft Windows Server 2019 from Windows Server 2008 or any other out-of-date edition of Windows Server, Progent can provide the skills to make your upgrade process efficient, affordable, and fast. Progent can assist you to:

  • Inventory your applications and server roles running on your existing Windows Servers
  • Move your virtual machines to the Private Progent Cloud or move to the current version of on-premises Windows Server or to Microsoft Azure
  • Optimize your configuration to minimize spend, manage resources, and strengthen security and compliance across hybrid workloads
Versions and Deployment Options for Windows Server 2019
Windows Server 2019 is offered in the value-priced Standard version and the high-end Datacenter edition. The Datacenter version permits unlimited server virtualization whereas the Standard version supports two VMs. The Datacenter edition also offers advanced technologies like Shielded VMs, Network Controller automation, Host Guardian Service (HGS), Storage Replica, SDN network management, and Storage Spaces Direct. Many of these technologies are discussed in Windows Server 2016 consulting.

Microsoft Windows Server 2019 has two deployment alternatives: Server Core and Server with Desktop Experience. Server Core has a minimal footprint and has no traditional desktop interface but supports all role-based workloads. This "headless" version is designed to be managed remotely, e.g. via Power Shell or RSAT. Server with Desktop Experience option is a full installation and features a comprehensive graphical user interface for local management. Progent's consultants can assist you to determine the versions and deployment options best suited to your situation, understand Microsoft's licensing requirements, and pick an optimal onsite, cloud, or hybrid network architecture.

Top New Features of Windows Server 2019
Windows Server 2019 features enhancements in scale, throughput, administration, Hyper-V virtualization, cybersecurity, hybrid deployment support, disaster recovery, container management, Linux co-existence, and other important improvements. Versions of Windows Server 2019 acquired under the SAC program are updated two times annually, and so make enhancements available more quickly than with Microsoft's Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) program.

Windows Server 2019 offers significant improvements in capacity compared to Microsoft Windows Server 2016:

Scale Limit Windows Server 2016 Windows Server 2019
Max raw capacity per cluster 1 PB 4 PB
Max raw capacity per server 100 TB 400 TB
Max number of volumes 32 64
Max size per volume 32 TB 64 TB

Other headline enhancements in Windows Server 2019 are:

  • Cluster Sets is a technology that allows dramatic expansion in cluster nodes in a Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) by grouping multiple smaller Failover Clusters into a single large, centrally controlled interconnected topology. Network managers can seamlessly migrate VMs throughout the Cluster Set fabric and manage every aspect of a Failover Cluster from initial deployment to retirement. Clusters joined in a Cluster Set can benefit from added storage and memory in a separate cluster without requiring that you purchase more equipment. Compute and storage assets do not have to be identical, and robustness is as good or better than with conventional Failover Clusters.

  • Storage Replica is now part of the Standard version of Windows Server 2019. Storage Replica provides next-generation disaster recovery capability and is described in Windows Server 2016 Storage Replica expertise. Novel features of Storage Replica in Windows Server 2019 include a test failover function that allows managers to bring a destination volume online momentarily for verification and backup. Also, you can now manage Storage Replica with Microsoft Windows Admin Center, which offers a GUI utility for managing procedures like server-to-server and stretch cluster replication.
  • Storage Spaces Direct improvements include duplicate elimination and compression for ReFS volumes, native support for persistent memory (PMem), the ability to use a low-cost flash drive to act as a witness with dual-server clusters, increased scale (up to 4 PB per cluster), twice the throughput for mirror-accelerated parity volumes, outlier detection for physical disk latency, and improved availability by selectively changing the limit of volume allocation. Microsoft's Storage Spaces Direct features are described in Windows Storage Spaces Direct experts.
  • Storage Migration Service simplifies the process of migrating the volume data from older servers to volumes in current releases of Windows Server. You can use Storage Migration Service to move to new physical devices or to virtual machines. The utility automatically inventories servers and their data; moves files, shares, and security settings to their intended servers; and permits new hosts to assume the identity of your legacy servers so your users and apps can access existing data without changing anything. Windows Admin Center's user interface can manage many concurrent migrations.
  • Expanded Linux support enables you to host Ubuntu Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and SUSE Enterprise Server on shielded virtual machines. Microsoft's Shielded Virtual Machines technology is described in Windows Server 2016 Shielded VMs consulting.
  • Windows Admin Center is a new browser-based app deployed on-premises for managing servers, clusters, hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) with Storage Spaces Direct, Windows 10 computers, and Azure-based VMs. Windows Admin Center can be utilized to manage Windows Server 2012 and newer. Windows Admin Center is an "in-box" management tool and so can be used to manage servers on private networks not connected to the public Internet. By posting the Windows Admin Center gateway server to the public Internet, you can manage your servers securely from anywhere.

    Microsoft Windows Admin Center permits you to administer local and Azure-hosted virtual machines from a centralized console

  • Container orchestration with Kubernetes, the open-source management automation tool for Docker containers, includes improved capability such as the ability to utilize embedded network security to guard both Windows and Linux services. For a discussion of containers on Microsoft Windows Server, refer to Microsoft Windows Server containers consulting.
  • Deduplication and Data Compression for Resilient File System (ReFS) Volumes allows an order of magnitude more data on a specified Resilient File System (ReFS) volume. The ReFS file system, first released in Windows Server 2012, integrates silicon high-performance tiers for hot data along with HDD/SDD capacity tiers to provide scale and fault tolerance.
  • Windows Defender ATP (Advanced Threat Protection) comes with Microsoft Windows Server 2019 as a built-in capability requiring no additional license and no agent installation.
  • Encrypted Networks is a new function that encrypts data traveling between VMs communicating within subnets that are designated as Encryption Enabled. Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) on the virtual subnet blocks entities accessing the physical network from reading, modifying, or spoofing network data. Data traveling between encrypted subnets is unencrypted.
  • A USB Flash Drive connected to your router can be used as a witness in dual-server clusters under Storage Spaces Direct. With this low-cost, easy-to-configure technique, if a server fails and then returns to operation, the USB drive cluster can let you know which of the servers holds the more current data.

  • LEDBAT automatically reduces network congestion by consuming bandwidth only during periods when the network is being sparsely used. LEDBAT enables you to distribute large, important updates across an enterprise network without degrading the responsiveness of mission-critical applications.
  • System Insights uses advanced analytics and machine learning to improve capacity planning. System Insights runs internally on every Windows Server 2019 instance and analyses performance counters and system events to forecast capacity requirements in key areas such as usage for volumes, storage capacity, processing, and networking.
  • Windows Time Service supports the new time synchronization technique known as Precision Time Protocol (PTP) and delivers correct time during a leap second. Microsoft Windows Server 2019 also offers time traceability and clock source stability. These capabilities provide improved accuracy and precision, comply with UTC and other regulations such as Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), and support various time-sensitive applications. Because network configuration requires care to implement the PTP protocol, the older Network Time Protocol is still the default time synchronization technique for Windows Server 2019.
