That means that it's a preview of the next feature update to Windows 10, after the Redstone 4 update that should be out next month. Like the previous version, much of the pitch for Windows Server 2019 is how well it works with Microsoft Azure in hybrid cloud deployments, but it also suggests Microsoft is having a bit of a hard time with an accelerated release schedule introduced a year ago. This test release, which is the semiannual channel release form of the server, is labeled "build 17623", according to Microsoft's Windows Insider program announcement. "In Windows Server 2019, we are continuing on this journey to improve WSL, helping Linux users bring their scripts to Windows while using industry standards like OpenSSH, Curl & Tar".

"Windows Server 2016 is the fastest adopted version of Windows Server, ever!"

For existing users of Windows Server 2016, there will be the usual twice-yearly update at the same time that the 2019 long-term edition arrives.

With Windows Server 2019, it will be easy to integrate Microsoft cloud services like Azure File Sync, Azure Backup, and disaster recovery. Microsoft charges licensing costs for the ability to connect to Windows Server, which are called "CALs".

In a nod to the popularity of hyperconverged infrastructure, which merges compute and storage systems, Microsoft noted that with Windows Server 16, it worked with hardware providers on validated HCI designs for customers. Accessibility in Windows isn't really talked about much, though the work that goes into making sure every little new feature is accessible to all Windows users is mind-blowing.
