About Microsoft Windows Server 2019 Essentials

Windows Server Essentials gives you a flexible, affordable, and easy-to-use server solution for small businesses with up to 25 users and 50 devices. An ideal first server, Windows Server Essentials can also be used as the primary server in a multi-server environment for small businesses.

Windows Server 2019 Essentials includes all of the best features from Windows Server 2019 so small businesses can successfully compete in today’s economy. By the way, it is an excellent choice if you are looking to upgrade from the Foundation edition, which is not available in the Windows Server 2019 family.

Windows Server 2019 Essentials features new technologies and integrated features that make transitioning to cloud computing easier, including features for working with Microsoft Azure.

The server includes added layers of security to keep your information safe 

Getting a bit technical here, you’ll benefit from the core functionality of Windows Server with unlimited windows server containers and a host guardian service. You will also get 2 OSEs/Hyper-V containers, and a Nano server. The server also gives you access to an active directory federation service, Windows Defender anti-malware protection, remote desktop services, storage services, failover clustering, a web application proxy, and more.

Regarding Microsoft Azure, Windows Server 2019 Essentials includes new support for Azure Active Directory via AAD Connect. To find out more: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/azure/active-directory/hybrid/how-to-connect-install-prerequisites
