On Tuesday June 26, 2018, Microsoft is hosting a virtual Windows Server Summit that will help you to get speed with many important capabilities in the upcoming release of Windows Server. In this virtual summit, you will explore the roadmap of Windows Server, discover new skills and best practices, and get your questions answered in conversations with the Microsoft experts behind each product.
In this virtual experience, you will learn several tips and tricks for modernizing your infrastructure and applications—regardless of whether you’re running it on-premises or in the cloud. I had the privilege to meet the featured speakers in person on several occasions, they are well known and are well positioned to bring you up to speed.
Learn more about Windows Server
There are 4 tracks next to the keynote which I highly recommend to attend to get insights about Windows Server 2019 as there is a lot more to learn and investigate beyond what will be addressed here!
- Hybrid: Learn how Windows Server helps you integrate Azure services into your on-premises environment and how to better run Windows Server in Azure.
- Security: Better security starts with the Operating System. Learn how Windows Server helps you elevate your company’s security posture.
- Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI): Windows Server 2016 introduced new HCI capabilities that are game-changers. Now, check what’s new around HCI for Windows Server 2019.
- Application platform: Containers are changing the way developers and operations teams run applications. Learn how Windows Server helps you modernize yours.
