Microsoft Windows Server 2022
Run business-critical workloads in Azure, on-premises, and at the edge with Windows Server 2022
Organizations are digitally transforming their operations and running business-critical workloads that span across cloud, on-premises, and the edge. As a result, the need to secure workloads and data has never been greater.
Windows Server 2022 enables you to run business-critical workloads anywhere — in your datacenter, in the cloud, and at the edge — while staying ahead of emerging security threats and helping secure your data. This release builds on the advancements made in Windows Server 2019, the fastest-adopted Windows Server ever.
Windows Server delivers advanced multi-layer security, hybrid capabilities with Azure, and a flexible platform to modernize applications with containers.
Advanced multilayer security
Public and private sectors continue to suffer major data breaches, at an average cost of $4.24 million in 2020. As cybersecurity threats escalate and the cost of incidents grows, security continues to be a top priority for customers. Windows Server 2022 includes enhanced security features with Secured-core server and secure connectivity.
Hybrid capabilities with Azure
Extend your datacenter to Azure for greater IT efficiency and take advantage of cloud innovation with your on-premises investments — while you enjoy improved tools to help manage servers wherever they are.
