Release of Windows Server 2019

Microsoft have recently announced that Windows 2019 Server will be released officially in October 2019. Windows Server 2019 builds upon Windows Server 2016 that was released two years ago primarily focussing on interoperability and migration to the Microsoft Azure cloud stack.

Particularly for those smaller companies that are not looking to move their Windows Server’s to the cloud, this new release may prove to be the last release of an on premises server OS product from Microsoft (Click here to learn more). Windows Server 2019 Essentials is available for up to 25 users or 50 devices as per the previous version. As per other Microsoft services such as email, it is clear that Microsoft are keen on promoting their Azure cloud stack and moving users to a rental PAYG method for licenses.

What does this mean for companies running older versions of Windows such as 2008 or 2012?

As most Microsoft products have a five year mainstream and an additional five year extended support lifecycle, it is clear support for older versions of Windows Server will be coming towards an end either imminently or over the coming years (Click here to learn more). Microsoft have recently announced an additional three year support product for legacy Windows versions but this can be cost prohibitive and is intended for customers with active software subscriptions or moving to Azure.

Microsoft have confirmed that Windows Server 2019 Essentials will also follow the 10 year support lifecycle policy (Click here to learn more).

For companies that have existing investment in either Windows Server 2008 or 2012, Windows Server 2019 provides an ideal opportunity to upgrade and benefit from the maximum lifespan of the 10 year lifecycle support policy. In addition products such as SQL Server 2008 which are also under the same product lifecycle policies as Windows Server will need upgrading. SQL Server 2019 which is due to be released in the near future is specifically designed to be used with Windows 2019.

Now is a great time to review existing licenses and plan ahead for the forthcoming Windows releases.
