Rule No.1: Each physical processor is valued with at least eight cores.
Rule No.2: Each physical server is valued with at least 16 cores.
Rule No.3: All physical and active cores must be licensed considering rules No.1 and No.2 so a Standard Server owns two VM-rights and a Datacenter Server unlimited VM-rights.
Rule No.4: To receive two more VM-rights for the Standard Edition all physical active cores must be licensed again.

Because Windows Server 2019 is a Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) release, it includes the Desktop Experience. (It's not included in Windows Server, version 1709, Windows Server, version 1803, or Windows Server, version 1809, because Semi-Annual Channel (SAC) releases don't include the Desktop Experience by design; they are strictly Server Core and Nano Server container image releases.) As with Windows Server 2016, during setup of the operating system you can choose between Server Core installations or Server with Desktop Experience installations.
System Insights is a new feature available in Windows Server 2019 that brings local predictive analytics capabilities natively to Windows Server. These predictive capabilities, each backed by a machine-learning model, locally analyze Windows Server system data, such as performance counters and events, providing insight into the functioning of your servers and helping you reduce the operational expenses associated with reactively managing issues in your Windows Server deployments.
The Server Core App Compatibility feature on demand (FOD) significantly improves the app compatibility of the Windows Server Core installation option by including a subset of binaries and components from Windows Server with the Desktop Experience, without adding the Windows Server Desktop Experience graphical environment itself. This is done to increase the functionality and compatibility of Server Core while keeping it as lean as possible.
This optional feature on demand is available on a separate ISO and can be added to Windows Server Core installations and images only, using DISM.
Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP)
ATP's deep platform sensors and response actions expose memory and kernel level attacks and respond by suppressing malicious files and terminating malicious processes.
Windows Defender ATP Exploit Guard is a new set of host-intrusion prevention capabilities. The four components of Windows Defender Exploit Guard are designed to lock down the device against a wide variety of attack vectors and block behaviors commonly used in malware attacks, while enabling you to balance security risk and productivity requirements.
Storage Migration Service is a new technology that makes it easier to migrate servers to a newer version of Windows Server. It provides a graphical tool that inventories data on servers, transfers the data and configuration to newer servers, and then optionally moves the identities of the old servers to the new servers so that apps and users don't have to change anything.
The cloud offers IT organizations opportunities to flourish under
a new model that delivers faster time to value and innovation.
Many organizations, however, face strict compliance or business
requirements. For organizations that need it all-security,
efficiency, and innovation-Windows Server 2016 delivers it.
Windows Server 2016 is the cloud-ready operating system
that supports your current workloads while introducing new
technologies that make it easy to transition to cloud computing
when you are ready.
What's New with Windows Server 2016:
Added layers of security
Enhance security and reduce risk with multiple layers of built-in protection.
New deployment options
Increase availability and reduce resource usage with the lightweight Nano Server.
Develop and manage with agility thanks to Windows Server and Hyper-V containers.
Build highly available, scalable software-defined storage and reduce costs.
Software-defined networking to automate with cloud-like efficiency.
Security at the OS level
Windows Server 2016 includes built-in breach resistance to help thwart
attacks on your systems and meet compliance goals. Even if someone finds
a way into your environment, the layers of security built into Windows Server
2016 limit the damage they can cause and help detect suspicious activity.
Protect your virtual machines. Use the unique Shielded Virtual Machines
feature to encrypt your VMs with BitLocker and help ensure they can run
only on hosts approved by the Host Guardian Service.
Help secure admin credentials. Protect admin credentials from Passthe-
Hash attacks using Credential Guard and Remote Credential Guard,
and control administrator privileges with Just-In-Time Administration and
Just Enough Administration, which together help minimize the time and
capability granted for specific privileges.
Protect the operating system.
Resist breaches with built-in Control Flow
Guard, which helps prevent memory corruption attacks, and Windows
Defender, optimized for server roles. Help ensure only trusted software
can be run on the server with Device Guard.
Improve ability to detect attacks. Use advanced auditing capabilities
to help detect malicious behavior.
Isolate applications. Help protect container-based applications with
Hyper-V containers, which do not share the host kernel with other
containers. Use the distributed firewall, a software-defined networking
capability, to control internal and external network traffic to VMs.
Evolve your infrastructure
Datacenter operations are struggling to reduce costs while handling more data
traffic. New applications stretch the operational fabric and create infrastructure
backlogs that can slow business. As organizations push the boundaries of highly
virtualized environments, they can use Windows Server 2016 capabilities to meet
operational and security challenges, freeing up IT resources to plan a strategy that
uses the cloud for future applications and solutions.
Trust your workloads to an enterprise-class hypervisor. You can be confident
your workloads will perform on Hyper-V, which Microsoft uses to run hyperscale
datacenters around the globe. When needed, you also can easily migrate
a Hyper-V workload from on-premises to a Windows Server VM in Azure.
Reduce datacenter footprint. Increase availability and reduce resource usage
with "just enough OS" using the Nano Server installation option, with an image
that is 25x smaller than Windows Server 2016.
Upgrade efficiently. Upgrade infrastructure clusters to Windows Server 2016
with zero downtime for your Hyper-V or Scale-out file server workloads, and
without requiring new hardware, using Mixed OS Mode cluster upgrades.
Stay open. Deploy applications on multiple operating systems with best-in-class
support for Linux on Hyper-V.
Automate server management. Use PowerShell 5.1 and Desired State
Configuration to automate routine operations.
Manage remotely. Control Windows servers from anywhere using Server
management tools, a new Azure-based GUI-especially useful for managing
headless installation options such as Nano Server.
Affordable high-performance storage
Storage systems are critical to the performance of most business applications.
But traditional, expensive, manually configured storage systems can prevent
organizations from realizing the efficiency benefits of a software-defined datacenter.
In contrast, the Azure-inspired, software-defined storage capabilities in Windows
Server 2016 use policies and automation to reduce costs and add scale.
Reduce cost. Build highly available, scalable software-defined storage solutions
at a fraction of the price of SAN or NAS. With Storage Spaces Direct, you can use
industry-standard servers with local storage, including high speed solid-state drives.
Create affordable business continuity. Prepare for the worst using Storage
Replica synchronous storage replication for disaster recovery among datacenters.
Prioritize storage resources. Ensure critical applications receive priority access
to storage resources using storage Quality of Service (QoS) policies.
Shipping costs associated with the delivery of all physical products.
Download products are free of shipping costs.
Software downloads are solely available for online orders.
In case a download product is ordered offline, only a licence key will be provided and/or a license will be activated. Additionally, a CD/DVD can be ordered.
