One of the most asked questions: “Will the licensing change?”. As far as the publicly available information is today (March 2021) there are no licensing changed announced. We do not expect changes either, but that doesn’t give guarantees of course. For help with Microsoft Windows Server licensing, please do contact us.
There are a couple of new and updated features in Windows Server 2022 compared to Windows Server 2019. One of them is an advanced multi-layer security to mitigate increasing cybersecurity risks we are facing.
Microsoft also invested in extended hybrid capabilities with Azure, like Azure Arc and Storage Migration Services which work best with the new Windows Server 2022.
Also there is a new Windows Admin Center (v2103) with improved virtual machine management and a simpler event viewer, alongside many other updates. The Windows Admin Center is also available in the Azure Portal (speaking about hybrid…).
