Windows Storage Server 2019 introduces an impressive range of new features in a number of areas. Below are, in no particular order, our top 8.

Persistent Memory support for Hyper-V Virtual Machines

In order to leverage the high throughput and low latency of persistent memory in VMs, it can now be projected directly into virtual machines, significantly lessening database transaction latency or reducing recovery times for low latency in-memory databases on failure.

Linux containers on Windows

With WSS 2019 you are now able to run Windows and Linux-based containers on the same container host, using the same docker daemon. This allows for you to have a heterogenous container host environment whilst still giving application developers flexibility.

Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP)

The ATP deep platform sensors and response actions expose memory and kernel level attacks. They respond through suppressing malicious files and terminating malicious processes.

Windows Defender ATP Exploit Guard is a new set of host-intrusion prevention capabilities. The four components of Windows Defender Exploit Guard are designed to lock down the device against a large range of attacks and block behaviours often used in malware attacks, while simultaneously balancing security risk and productivity needs.

With Network protection, the endpoint is safeguarded against web-based threats via blocking any outbound process on the device and untrusted hosts/IP addresses through Windows Defender Smartscreen.

Sensitive data is protected by controlled folder access, which blocks untrusted processes from accessing your protected folders.

Windows Defender Application Control (also known as Code Integrity (CI) policy) was a feature present in Windows Server 2016. While hailed as a great concept, feedback from users had suggested it was difficult to deploy. This issue is addressed in Windows Storage Server 2019. Default CI policies have been built, which allows for Windows in-box files and Microsoft applications. It blocks known executables that can bypass CI.

Container Improvements

Improved Integrated Identity

Integrated Windows authentication in containers has been made simpler and more reliable, addressing many limitations present in previous versions of Windows Server.

Better Application Compatibility

Container Windows-based applications have become a lot easier. The app compatibility for the existing windowsservercore image has been enhanced. For applications with additional API dependencies, you now have a third base image: windows.

Reduced Size and Higher Performance

The base container image download sizes, size on disk and start-up times have all been improved, speeding up container workflows.

Management Experience Using Windows Admin Center (Preview)

It is now easier than ever before to view which containers are running on your computer and manage individual containers with a new extension for Windows Admin Center. Simply search for the “Containers” extension in the Windows Admin Center public feed.

Built-in Support for Kubernetes

Windows Server 2019 carries on the improvements to storage, computing and networking from the semi-annual channel releases required to support Kubernetes on Windows.

Container Networking in Windows Server 2019 significantly boosts the usability of Kubernetes on Windows by enhancing platform networking resiliency and support of container networking plugins.

Encrypted Networks

Virtual network encryption allows for the encryption of virtual network traffic between VMs which communicate with each other within subnets that have been marked as Encryption Enabled. Also utilised is Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) on the virtual subnet to encrypt packets. DTLS protects against any tampering, forgery or eavesdropping by anyone with access to the physical network.

Failover Clustering

Low Extra Delay Background Transport

The Low Extra Delay Background Transport (LEDBAT) is a latency optimised, network congestion control provider designed to automatically yield bandwidth to users and applications, whilst consuming the entire bandwidth available when the network is not in use. This technology is meant for use in deploying large, critical updates across an IT environment without negatively impacting user facing services and associated bandwidth.


Microsoft's newest file system, the Resilient File System (ReFS) has experienced many improvements. Designed to maximise data availability, effectively scale large data sets across diverse workloads and deliver data integrity through resiliency to corruption. It aims to deal with an expanding set of storage scenarios and establish a foundation for future innovations.

Resiliency and Scalability

ReFS possesses a number of new features which can accurately detect corruptions and mend those corruptions while still remaining online, aiding in delivering improved integrity and availability for your data.

  • Integrity-streams Checksums are used for metadata and data. This gives ReFS the ability to reliably catch corruptions.
  • Salvaging data Repair processes are localised to the area of corruption and performed online. This means no volume downtime will be required.
  • Proactive error correction As well as validating data prior to reads and writes, ReFS introduces a scrubber (a data integrity scanner). This scrubber periodically scans the volume, detecting latent corruptions and proactively putting repairs of corrupt data into motion.

Scalability

ReFS is designed to support humungous data sets (possibly millions of terabytes) without it having a negative impact performance, allowing it to achieve a greater scale than previous file systems.

Performance

ReFS not only provides resiliency improvement, but it also introduces new features for performance-sensitive and virtualised workloads. Real-time tier optimisation, sparse VDL and block cloning are great examples of the evolving capabilities of ReFS, which are designed to support dynamic and diverse workloads:

Mirror-accelerated parity This feature provides blazing fast performance in addition to capacity efficient storage for your data.

ReFS delivers this by dividing a volume into two logical storage groups, known as tiers. Each of these tiers can possess their own drive and resiliency types, enabling each tier to optimise for either performance or capacity. Examples of configurations include:

Performance Tier Capacity Tier
Mirrored SSD Mirrored HDD
Mirrored SSD Parity SSD
Mirrored SSD Parity HDD

After these tiers are configured, ReFS uses them to provide super-fast and capacity efficient storage for hot data and cold data respectively:

  • All writes will occur in the performance tier and big blocks of data that are left in the performance tier will be efficiently and effectively moved to the capacity tier in real-time.
  • Accelerated VM operations ReFS features new functionalities specifically designed to improve the performance of virtualised workloads. Block cloning accelerates copy operations enabling quick low-impact checkpoint merge operations. With Sparse VDL, ReFS can zero files rapidly, lowering the amount of time needed to create fixed VHDs from tens of minutes to just a few seconds.
  • Variable cluster sizes ReFS supports 4K and 64K cluster sizes. 4K is the size recommended for the majority of deployments, however 64K cluster are more appropriate for massive, sequential IO workloads.
