Why Windows Server 2019 is about to release so early? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    When I did Google Search, I found

    • Windows Server 2008 R2 released on October 22, 2009.
    • Windows Server 2012 R2 released on October 18, 2013.
    • Windows Server 2016 released on September 26, 2016 and
    • Windows Server 2019 will be released in Q3-Q4, 2018.
    Windows Server 2016 is more complex and advanced than Windows Server 2012 R2. And it seems most of companies/ organizations are still not using Windows Server 2016 and not upgrading their server to Windows Server 2016.  

    It seems that next Windows Server (Windows Server 2019) is about to release so early.

    What features are missing in Windows Server 2016 because of this Microsoft wants to release Windows Server 2019 so early?

    Regards

  • Hi,

       

    Thank you for your concern and support for Microsoft products.

    Windows Server 2019 is built on the strong foundation of Windows Server 2016. 

    Windows Server 2019 has numerous innovations in four themes – Hybrid, Security, Application Platform, and Hyper-converged infrastructure.

    For more information, you can refer to:

  • I agree that it's sooner than most people would want, but 1809 is the LTSC (formerly LTSB) release of Win10, and since Server shares code with Win10, not having a new Server release (by definition LTSC) now would mean the next window would be two years from now.

    While two years between releases may be too short, four years may have been too long.

    Perhaps the LTSC interval would be better served at three years, since this might keep happening otherwise.
