Windows Server 2019 Datacenter Edition is the newest version of the highly virtualized software built for private and hybrid cloud environments. The innovative software concentrates on providing the highest level of flexibility and control to businesses in need of a centralized solution for managing cloud-ready workloads with more ease. Windows Server 2019 also helps to prevent malicious attacks against your system with a strengthened security suite that also detects any suspicious activity as a preventative measure. Users can change existing applications into cloud-ready solutions and help developers to create new ones using containers, micro services, and Nano Server. Your datacenter can be run with an automated and resilient operating system and will have access to many of the same cloud-efficient features found in Microsoft Azure datacenters.
The main products of Windows Server 2019 family are Windows Server 2019 Standard and Datacenter. Either one can be installed in Server Core mode or Desktop Experience (GUI) mode. Let’s first discuss the differences between the editions Standard and Datacenter, and then discuss their sub-options Server Core and Desktop Experience. Windows Server 2019 Datacenter is the most comprehensive edition of Microsoft Server product family, and the most expensive just as well. This reflects an increase in price, compared with the MSRP of the equivalent server of version 2016. The license cost is calculated on core / CAL basis.
With Windows Server 2019 Datacenter, users gain access to features such as server virtualization, storage, software-defined networking, web application platforms, server management and automation, information protection, virtual desktops, and much more. This version of Windows Server 2019 Datacenter uses an original equipment installation (OEI) DVD digital image for installation and provides a 16 core license.
