What's new in Windows Server 2022 Datacenter?
Like its predecessor, the new version of Microsoft's server operating system Windows Server 2022 is once again based on Windows 10, which means that users will find a familiar desktop interface in visual terms as well, with all functions available in the usual place. The new Windows Server Software 2022 also receives 10 years of product support from Microsoft in the form of support and updates.
Compared to the previous version, the Windows Server 2022 server software offers many innovations in the three important areas of security, application platform and data migration.
Especially the edition Windows Server 2022 Datacenter offers again a plus with Hyper-V, SDN, Storage Spaces Direct and Storage Replica and the support of Shielded Virtual Machines, for the creation of highly secure virtualization infrastructures, with:
- Support for an unlimited number of virtual machines plus one Hyper-V host per license
- Unlimited Storage Replica for synchronous as well as asynchronous replication of volumes between servers or clusters for disaster recovery
- Hyper Converged Infrastructure for software-defined consolidation of computing, storage and networking functions in a cluster
- Virtual OSE (Operating System Environment)
- Shielded Virtual Machines (SVM)
- Software-defined networking (SDN)
- Software-defined storage (SDS)
Additional features of Windows Server 2022 Datacenter Edition
In addition, Windows Server 2022 Datacenter Edition includes numerous other features that address the growing demands of operating complex networks.
Enhanced security in Windows Server 2022 Datacenter
Windows Server 2022 now includes a new layered security to provide enterprise servers with comprehensive data and service protection. This is accomplished by the following new features and enhancements, among others:
- TPM 2.0 (Trusted Platform Module) provides a hardware-assisted store for cryptographic key protection, including measuring system integrity and verifying the trustworthiness of code when Windows Server starts. This module is also used in BitLocker drive encryption.
- Secured-Core server processors provide firmware protection, with Dynamic Root of Trust for Measurement (DRTM) technology supporting startup measurement and verification, and Direct Memory Access (DMA) protection for isolated driver access to memory.
- In addition, Secured Core servers support VBS (Virtualization Based Security) and HVCI (Hypervisor Based Security) code integrity. Here, VBS uses various hardware virtualization features to thereby create a secure memory area that is isolated from the normal operating system, thus protecting the server from risks such as those posed by cryptocurrency mining attacks in particular.
- VBS also supports Credential Guard to store user login information in a virtual container that the operating system does not have direct access to.
- HTTPS and TLS 1.3 are enabled by default on Windows Server 2022 Datacenter to establish secure connections. TLS1.3 (Transport Layer Security) represents the latest version of this security protocol most commonly used on the Internet in encrypting data to provide a secure communication channel between two endpoints.
- Secure DNS supports DoH (DNS-over-HTTPS) in encrypting DNS queries using HTTPS protocol to prevent eavesdropping and DNS data tampering, which also contributes to traffic security.
- SMB (Server Message Block) uses AES-256-GCM and AES-256-CCM for encryption, these are automatically used in Windows Server 2022 as soon as a connection is established with another computer that also supports these standards.
- Encryption using SMB Direct and RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access) provides higher bandwidth as well as lower latency in Windows Server 2022 for direct storage, storage replica, Hyper-V and SQL Server.
- Failover clusters in Windows Server 2022 allow differentiated encryption control for CSV (Cluster Shared Volumes,) and SBL (Storage Bus Layer).
Container platforms in Windows Server 2022 Datacenter
When using Windows Containers, there are also various optimizations in Windows Server 2022 Datacenter, for example in application compatibility as well as for the Windows Container user interface with Kubernetes.
- For Windows Containers, the image size has been reduced by up to 40%, increasing startup time by 30% and improving performance.
- The use of Kubernetes has been enhanced with broader support in host processes for configuring nodes as well as IPv6 , as well as in implementing network policies with the open source Calico software.
- Windows Admin Center updates now simplify container creation for .NET applications.
Storage and Migration Services in Windows Server 2022 Datacenter Edition
Among the many improvements in Windows Server 2022 are those in Storage Migration Services, making it easier to migrate storage to Windows Server as well as from other source storage locations to Azure. The Windows Server 2022 Storage Migration Server orchestrator now provides the following options:
- Migrate local users or groups to Windows Server
- Migrate storage from or to failover clusters
- Migrate between standalone servers and failover clusters
- Migrate storage from Linux servers using the open source Samba application
- Migrate to Microsoft Azure networks
- Migrating NetApp CIFS servers as well as FAS arrays to Windows Server
- For storage repair, customizable speed now provides better control of data synchronization: resources can be optionally allocated to repairing data copies (resilience) or running active workloads (performance). This allows clusters to be managed more flexibly and efficiently.
- Storage bus cache provides storage on standalone servers, connecting faster media such as SSD or NVMe to slower ones such as HDD, improving read and write performance and therefore efficiency.
- New SMB compression eliminates the need to manually compress files when transferring them over the network, allowing for faster transfers on busy networks.
Individual enhancements in Windows Server 2022 Datacenter
In addition to the improvements already listed, the new Windows Server 2022 release offers a host of other optimizations that also boost server performance:
- AMD processor support for nested virtualization now provides more options in environments to run Hyper-V on a Hyper-V virtual machine (VM).
- Microsoft Edge replaces Explorer. Edge is based on Chromium open source, providing more security than Internet Explorer.
- There are performance improvements for Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) through the use of TCP HyStart++, which reduces packet loss, and with RACK (Recent ACKnowledgment) to reduce retransmit timeouts (RTO) during retransmissions.
- RSC (Receive Segment Coalescing) optimizes the performance of virtual switches in Hyper-V by aggregating packets in the hypervisor network, allowing them to be processed as larger segments. This reduces CPU cycles and also improves network traffic performance, among other benefits.
