Moving Forward With Windows Server 2019

Microsoft has hugely simplified the adoption of Windows Server 2019 with direct in-place upgrade from Windows Server 2016 and Windows Server 2012 R2. Businesses upgrading from Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2, which reach the end of extended support in January 2020, will still need to move to Server 2012 and then 2016 first (or migrate to Azure for three more years of free support). However, the switch to in-place upgrades will make it far easier for them to keep moving forward once they’re on a supported release.
