As part of this release, Windows Server is getting secured-core capabilities to secure systems that would run workloads on Windows Server 2022. Secured-core server builds on technologies such as Windows Defender System Guard and Virtualization-based Security to minimize risk from firmware vulnerabilities and advanced malware. The new release also provides secured connectivity by introducing several new capabilities such as faster and more secure encrypted HTTPS connections and industry standard SMB AES 256 encryption. Windows Server 2022 improves hybrid server management and has an enhanced event viewer and many more new capabilities in Windows Admin Center. Furthermore, this release includes improvements to Windows containers, such as smaller image size for faster download, simplified network policy implementation and containerization tools for .NET applications.
Manage cloud-ready workloads with more ease
This innovative software focuses on providing a high level of flexibility of use and control to businesses in need of a solution to manage cloud-ready workloads with more ease.
Prevent malicious attacks
Windows Server 2022 also helps to prevent malicious attacks against your system with a strengthened security suite that also detects any suspicious activity as a preventative measure.
web application platforms
Change applications into cloud-ready solutions
Users can change existing applications into cloud-ready solutions and help developers to create new apps using containers, microservices, and the new Nano Server. Your data center can be run with an automated and resilient operating system and will have access to many of the same cloud-efficient features found in Microsoft Azure data centers.
With Windows Server 2022 Standard, users gain access to features such as server virtualization, storage, software-defined networking, web application platforms, server management and automation, information protection, virtual desktops, and much more.
Develop and manage with agility thanks to Windows Server and Hyper-V containers
New Deployment Options
Increase availability and reduce resource usage with the lightweight Nano Server
Software-defined networking to automate with cloud-like efficiency
Build highly available, scalable software-defined storage and reduce costs
Added Layers of Security
Enhance security and reduce risk with multiple layers of built-in protection. Rely on new layers of protection built into the operating system to further safeguard against security breaches. Help block malicious attacks and enhance the security of your virtual machines, applications, and data.
Strengthen your security - starting at the operating system.
Protect the applications that run on your operating system, anywhere it's deployed. Enhance the protection of your applications on-premises or running in the cloud. Rely on security features built into Windows Server 2022 to control privileged access, protect virtual machines, and harden the platform against emerging threats.
Detect suspicious activity
- Help ensure only trusted software runs on the server with Device Guard.
- Help protect against memory corruption attacks with Control Flow Guard.
- Help protect against known malware with Windows Defender optimized for server roles.
Virtualize without compromising security
Use Shielded Virtual Machines to help protect your virtual machines from a compromised fabric as well as improve your compliance. Shielded Virtual Machines are encrypted using Bitlocker and will run on healthy hosts.
Protect Administrator Credentials
Help guard administrator credentials from Pass-the-Hash attacks by using Credential Guard and Remote Credential Guard. Limit administrator privileges with Just-In-Time Administration and Just Enough Administration.
Detect security threats quickly
Help detect suspicious behavior in the kernel or other sensitive processes with advanced auditing capabilities. Plus, use Microsoft Operations Management Suite Insights & Analytics tools to set up alerts and reporting.
Increase application isolation
Help protect container-based applications with Hyper-V containers. Use the distributed firewall, a software-defined networking capability, to control internal and external network traffic to virtual machines.
Be more efficient with a software-defined datacenter
Increase efficiency and agility with a software-defined datacenter. Solve your operational and budgetary challenges. Blend physical and virtual infrastructures together through software-defined compute, storage, and networking technologies.
Bring flexibility and control to your datacenter
Bring flexibility and control to your datacenter while lowering costs with software-defined compute, storage, and networking. Run your datacenter with an automated and resilient operating system, and access many of the same cloud-efficient features found in Microsoft Azure datacenters.
Rely on resilient compute
Run your datacenter with the utmost confidence with an automated, resilient server operating system.
Increase datacenter efficiency and reduce storage management costs with software-defined storage capabilities
Rapid network scale
Move your network-control layer from hardware to software. Automatically balance and shift workloads without setting switches.
Innovate faster with cloud-ready application workloads
Transform the way you develop, deploy, and run your applications with a modern DevOps environment. Bring agility, scale, and security benefits to existing applications, while building next-generation applications optimized for the cloud.
Run current applications on a secure, software-defined fabric.
Run your existing apps on Windows Server 2022 without modifying them. Take advantage of enhanced security and efficiency features on the fabric.
Move existing apps to containers
Move your traditional applications into a modern DevOps environment with little or no code changes. Enable “write-once, run-anywhere” apps to deploy on-premises, to any cloud, or in a hybrid architecture with containers. It’s consistency across dev, test, and production.
Build cloud and hybrid apps.
Combine the benefits of containers with Nano server, Azure Service Fabric, and Windows Server for true business agility in cloud-native apps. Create microservices applications using fewer and compressed resources. Develop faster using the lightweight Nano Server installation option. And use Service Fabric to build always-on, scalable, and distributed applications to run in Azure, on-premises, or both.
Securely deploy and run your existing applications on Windows Server 2022 to transform them into new cloud-native models. Help developers to innovate and create on-premises and cloud applications using the latest technology
