Enables shielded virtual machines and protects the data on them from unauthorized access - even from Hyper-V administrators.
PowerShell Direct enables you to run PowerShell commands in the guest OS of a VM without needing to go through the network layers.
The CyberStore WSS 2019 boosts the ability to enable secure boot for VMs with Linux guest operating systems.
The CyberStore WSS 2019 range can add and remove virtual memory and virtual network adapters while the virtual machine is running.
Windows Storage Server Work Folders works very similar to Dropbox. Install this role on your CyberStore 424S WSS iSCSI SAN / NAS and get a fully functional secure file replication service.
If you've ever had a disk fail in a RAID array you'll know the rebuild time can take ages, especially with large disks. WSS 2012 greatly reduces this to less than 1 hour for a 3TB disk.

Windows Storage Server 2019 possesses a stunning range of useful features, below are some of the best.
Windows Admin Center is a fresh feature introduced by Windows Storage Server 2019. It is a locally deployed, browser based app great for managing clusters, server and hyperconverged infrastructure with Windows 10 PCs and Storage Spaces Direct.
Storage Migration Service is a new technology which simplifies the process of migrating servers to newer version of Windows Server. It provides a graphical tool which saves data on servers, transfers the data and configuration to new servers and then provides the option to move the identities of the old servers to the new servers, meaning apps and users have no need to change anything.
File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) is a rose service in Windows Server which allows you to classify and manage the data stored on file servers. FSRM can be used to classify files automatically, perform tasks based on those classifications, set quotas on folders and create reports monitoring storage usage.
There are a large variety of improvements present in Windows Storage Server 2019. These include improvements in how the Storage Replica log tracks replication, enhancing replication throughput and latency, most notably on all-flash storage and Storage Spaces Direct clusters which replicate between each other.
Another improvement is test failover. Its now possible to temporarily mount a snapshot of the replicated storage onto a destination server for testing and backup purposes.
Nano Server boats an amazing 92% smaller installation footprint than the WSS GUI option. If you'd like your CyberStore WSS Storage aplliance installed with Nano Server rather than the graphical user interface simply let your account manager know and you'll benefit from these advantages:
Microsoft is working closely with the Docker development team to bring Docker-based containers to Windows Server. In the past, containers have existed almost entirely in the Linux/UNIX open-source world allowing you to isolate applications and services in an agile, easy-to-administer way. Broadberry CyberStore WSS 2019 storage appliances offer two different types of "containerised" Windows Server instances:
Secure Boot is part of the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) specification that protects the CyberStore WSS startup environment against the injection of rootkits or other assorted boot-time malware.
The problem with Windows Server-based Secure Boot is that your server would blow up (figuratively speaking) if you tried to create a Linux-based Generation 2 Hyper-V VM because the Linux kernel drivers weren't part of the trusted device store. Technically, the VM's UEFI firmware presents a "Failed Secure Boot Verification" error and stops startup.
Nowadays, the Windows Server and Azure engineering teams seemingly love Linux. Therefore, we can now deploy Linux VMs under Windows Server 2019 Hyper-V with no trouble without having to disable the otherwise stellar Secure Boot feature.
The CyberStore WSS 2019 range includes a stable version of Resilient File System (ReFS) - a high-performance, high-resiliency file system intended for use with Storage Spaces Direct and Hyper-V workloads.
Storage Spaces is a great Windows Server feature that makes it more affordable for administrators to create redundant and flexible disk storage. Storage Spaces Direct now extends Storage Spaces to allow failover cluster nodes to use their local storage inside this cluster, avoiding the previous necessity of a shared storage fabric.
Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) is a Windows Server role that supports claims (token)-based identity. Claims-based identity is crucial thanks to the need for single-sign on (SSO) between on-premises Active Directory and various cloud-based services.
ADFS v4 finally brings support for OpenID Connect-based authentication, multi-factor authentication (MFA), and what Microsoft calls "hybrid conditional access." This latter technology allows ADFS to respond when user or device attributes fall out of compliance with security policies on either end of the trust relationship.
The CyberStore WSS range powered by Windows Storage Server 2019 now includes the ability to host virtual machines through Windows Server Hyper-V. This allows you to deploy additional Hyper-V hosts without needing more servers.
The CyberStore WSS 2019 now allows virtual hardware to be added or adjusted without needing to power down the VM. This allows allocated RAM to be adjusted on a virtual machine, or an additional virtual NIC to be added on the fly.
In the past, Hyper-V administrators ordinarily performed Windows PowerShell-based remote administration of VMs the same way they would with physical hosts. Now, PowerShell remoting commands now have -VM* parameters that allows us to send PowerShell directly into the Hyper-V host's VMs!
Windows Server 2019 shielded VMs allow for much deeper, fine-grained control over Hyper-V VM access. For example, your Hyper-V host may have VMs from more than one tenant, and you need to ensure that different Hyper-V admin groups can access only their designated VMs. By using BitLocker Drive Encryption to encrypt the VM's virtual hard disks, shielded VMs can solve that problem.
