An Introduction to Windows Server 2025

In the ever-evolving landscape of technology, the role of server infrastructure remains paramount. With the release of Windows Server 2025, Microsoft has once again raised the bar, offering a robust and feature-rich platform designed to meet the demands of modern computing environments. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the key features and enhancements of Windows Server 2025, and explore how organisations can streamline operations, enhance security, and drive innovation.

What is Windows Server 2025?

Windows Server 2025 is the latest release of Microsoft’s server operating system, offering a range of new features and improvements. It is designed for the hybrid cloud era, offering improvements in security, performance, and cloud integration. The operating system is ideal for businesses looking to adopt a hybrid cloud strategy, enable remote work, and improve their disaster recovery capabilities. Some of the most notable enhancements include:

On-premises Server Hotpatching with Azure Arc: This feature allows for seamless updates to your on-premises servers without requiring a reboot.

Next Generation Active Directory (AD) and SMB: The operating system includes improvements in AD, such as support for NUMA and increased database page size, as well as enhanced SMB capabilities.

Improved Storage performance: With upgraded disk management tools and support for Storage Spaces volumes, Windows Server 2025 offers better storage performance.

Robust in-place Upgrades: The new operating system makes it easier to upgrade existing systems without disruptive downtime.

Key Features of Windows Server 2025

Windows Server 2025 introduces several new features aimed at enhancing security, performance, and flexibility. Here are the details:

Enhanced Security Protocols

Security is a top priority in today’s digital world, and Windows Server 2025 doesn’t disappoint in this regard. With built-in security features such as Secure Boot, Credential Guard, and Device Guard, organisations can fortify their defenses against a wide range of cyber threats. Additionally, Windows Defender ATP (Advanced Threat Protection) provides real-time threat detection and response, helping administrators stay one step ahead of malicious actors.

Improved Performance and Scalability

The operating system introduces enhancements aimed at improving performance and scalability. With support for the latest hardware advancements, including multi-core processors and high-speed storage technologies, businesses can achieve optimal performance levels for their workloads. Moreover, enhancements to Hyper-V virtualization technology enable organisations to scale their server infrastructure dynamically, ensuring seamless resource allocation across virtual machines.

Seamless Hybrid Cloud Integration

Windows Server 2025 is built for the hybrid cloud. With Azure Arc deeply integrated, IT professionals can manage both on-premises and cloud-based resources from a single, unified console. This simplifies management and streamlines operations across diverse environments.

Built-in Container Support

Containers have revolutionised the way applications are deployed and managed, and Windows Server 2025 embraces this trend with built-in container support. With support for both Windows containers and Linux containers, companies can modernise their infrastructure and leverage the flexibility and scalability of containerized environments. Kubernetes support further enhances container orchestration capabilities, enabling organisations to deploy and manage containerized applications at scale.

A Platform for Innovation

Beyond core functionalities, the operating system paves the way for innovation. Integration with cutting-edge technologies like AI and machine learning allows organisations to unlock new possibilities and gain a competitive edge.
