Overview/Description

Explore the new features in Windows Server 2019 on storage, failover clustering, and application platform containers, in this 15-video course. You will examine the new storage service, which makes it easier to migrate servers to a new server, new hardware, or virtual machines. This course examines storage spaces direct and the storage replica feature. You will examine the MS Azure Stack hyper-converged infrastructure to combine resources into a highly virtualized, highly centralized cluster, which makes it easier to deploy, manage, and scale your workloads. Next, learn the benefits of using cluster aware updating, and how it integrates with the new Windows admin center. You will explore self-healing failover clusters, a new resiliency feature that has been implemented into Windows Server 2019, and application platform container improvements. This course examines improvements to maximize the overall throughput to the virtual workloads running on your virtual machines. Finally, you will explore the new features of the Windows Time service, enhancements to high-performance gateways, and the benefits and requirements of virtual network encryption.
