Microsoft this week released the first preview of Windows Server 2019, the next iteration of its enterprise-standard server software and announced that the final code would ship in the second half of his year.
Licensing costs will likely go up for Server 2019, Microsoft added.
The Server 2019 early look is available now to participants in Windows Insider, the preview program Microsoft established prior to Windows 10's launch and expanded in June 2017 to include Windows Server. Microsoft has tagged the beta with the build number 17623.
Windows Server 2019's beta, the general window of release, even its nameplate, were not unexpected. Microsoft signaled each when last year it conformed Server's development and release cadence to that of the client versions of Windows and Office.
