Discover Windows Server 2022 Datacenter Innovations
With improved and new key functionalities, Windows Server 2022 is certainly the ideal solution for you that will help you improve your efficiency and strengthen your performance. The secure-core feature integrated into the operating system protects hardware, firmware, and Windows Server capabilities. Let us explore Windows Server 2022 key features.
What’s new in Windows Server 2022 Datacenter
The current editions of Windows Server 2022 are Datacenter, Standard and Essentials. The Datacenter Edition is a step up from the Standard Edition and is intended for highly virtualized datacenters and cloud settings. This newly introduced edition comes with Software-Defined Networking as well as other key features, which we'll go over in detail below.
Software Defined Networking
Using Software Defined Networking (SDN), you can centrally manage and control physical and virtual network devices in your Windows Server datacenter 2022, such as routers, switches, and gateways. You can use your existing SDN-compatible devices to improve integration across virtual and physical networks. Hyper-V Virtual Switch, Hyper-V Network Virtualization, and RAS Gateway are all virtual network components that are essential elements of your SDN system.
The platform advancements for Windows Containers include application compatibility and the Windows Container experience with Kubernetes. Windows Server 2022 Datacenter decreased Windows Container image size by up to 40%, resulting in a 30% faster startup time and higher performance. This is considered a major step forward.
Storage Migration Service
Storage Migration Service enhancements in Windows Server 2022 make it easier to migrate storage from many sources to Windows Server or Azure. Users can migrate local users and groups to the new server, relocate storage from failover clusters, migrate to failover clusters, migrate between standalone servers and failover clusters, and even migrate storage from a Samba-enabled Linux server when using the Storage Migration Server orchestrator on Windows Server 2022.
