Windows Server 2019 Standard vs. Datacenter Licensing on HPE ProLiant Gen10 Servers [CCEN]


When your customers are considering upgrading
to Windows Server 2019, they may have some questions about which version is best for
them: is it best to choose Windows Server 2019 Standard or Windows Server 2019 Datacenter? Hi, I’m Thomas Trotter, an Inside Sales
Representative for HPE. Welcome to another Coffee Coaching video. Let’s say you’re talking to a small or
midsize customer whose IT needs are growing. They may require advanced features, support
for remote offices, and some virtualization. They might be in the market for an HPE ProLiant Gen10 server such as the ML110, ML350, DL360 or DL380. For these customers, Windows Server 2019 Standard
may be a good fit. Windows Server 2019 Standard provides rights
for up to two Windows Server Virtual Machines (VMs) or two Microsoft Hyper-V containers,
and the use of unlimited Windows Server containers when all server cores are licensed. Windows Server 2019 Standard allows for unlimited
user and device access with the purchase of appropriate Client Access Licenses. Storage Replica is now available in Windows
Server 2019 Standard and Datacenter, however, it is limited in Windows Server 2019 Standard
to one partnership with one Replication Group and a single 2TB volume – making Windows
Server 2019 Datacenter the appropriate SKU if your customer has more than just a single
volume of data to be replicated. Maybe your customer has more advanced needs
(supporting demanding workloads, advanced storage requirements, application deployment,
virtualization, and cloud for example) or would like to utilize some of the unique product
features available in Windows Server 2019 Datacenter, that are not available within
Standard such as Shielded Virtual Machines, Software-defined Networking, and Storage Spaces
Direct, and unrestricted Storage Replica. They may be considering servers such as the
HPE ProLiant ML350, DL300 series, and DL500 series Gen10 servers… In this case, you may want to recommend Windows
Server 2019 Datacenter. Not only is it the most complete version (with
the inclusion of the product features I just named), but Windows Server 2019 Datacenter
also allows unlimited VMs or Hyper-V containers. Don’t forget, Microsoft has announced that
Windows Server 2008 is approaching End of Support (“EoS” for short), and many of
your customer will want to migrate to a new solution before the EoS date in early 2020. Pairing Windows Server 2019 with HPE ProLiant
Gen10 servers is a winning combination that helps your customers transform IT to keep
up with modern demands. Learn more about Windows Server 2019 licensing
