What is Windows Server 2019 Standard
Windows Server 2019 Standard is designed for physical or minimally virtualized environments. As for the maximum number of users, it is based on CALs, or client access license requirements. Generally speaking, the Standard edition offers the core Windows Server functionality (including but not limited to the functionality of Windows server essentials 2019).
The Standard edition of Windows Server 2019 enables hybrid operations in Azure environment. You can inventory and migrate data, as well as security settings and other configurations, from legacy systems toWindows server 2019 and/or the Azure cloud. The functionality of the Standard edition allows you to centralize your company’s file shares by synchronizing file servers to Azure. With that, the flexibility and performance of a local file server are preserved. Additionally, applications that are running in your local network can use a variety of innovations in the cloud, such as Artificial Intelligence or the Internet of Things.
Features and Benefits
With Microsoft Windows Server 2019 Standard, 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.

Be more efficient with a software-defined datacenter
Increase efficiency and agility with a software-defined datacenter. Solve your operational and budgetary challenges. Blend physical and virtual infrastructures together through software-defined compute, storage, and networking technologies.
Increase datacenter effciency and reduce storage management costs with software-defined storage capabilities
Bring flexibility and control to your datacenter while lowering costs with software-defined compute, storage, and networking.
Move your network-control layer from hardware to software. Automatically balance and shift workloads without setting switches.
Run your datacenter with the utmost confidence with an automated, resilient server operating system.
Innovate faster with cloud-ready application workloads
Transform the way you develop, deploy, and run your applications with a modern DevOps environment. Bring agility, scale, and security benefits to existing applications, while building next-generation applications optimized for the cloud.
Move your traditional applications into a modern DevOps environment with little or no code changes. Enable “write-once, run-anywhere” apps to deploy on-premises, to any cloud, or in a hybrid architecture with containers. It’s consistency across dev, test, and production.
Combine the benefits of containers with Nano server, Azure Service Fabric, and Windows Server for true business agility in cloud-native apps. Create microservices applications using fewer and compressed resources. Develop faster using the lightweight Nano Server installation option. And use Service Fabric to build always-on, scalable, and distributed applications to run in Azure, on-premises, or both.
Securely deploy and run your existing applications on Windows Server 2019 to transform them into new cloud-native models. Help developers to innovate and create on-premises and cloud applications using the latest technology
Run your existing apps on Windows Server 2019 without modifying them. Take advantage of enhanced security and efficiency features on the fabric.
Strengthen your security starting at the operating system
Protect the applications that run on your operating system, anywhere it’s deployed. Enhance the protection of your applications on-premises or running in the cloud. Rely on security features built into Windows Server 2019 to control privileged access, protect virtual machines, and harden the platform against emerging threats.
