New Windows Server 2019 and Azure Stack HCI instructor-lead courses
Published Sep 21 2020 10:00 AM 5,893 Views

Search for training on Windows Server and you're likely to find that the top results are about Windows Server virtual machines on Azure. But we also know that many organizations run Windows Server on-premises: in a server room in their own building or in a separate data center.   


Some of our most popular sessions that our team delivered at at Microsoft Ignite the Tour 2019 were about Windows Server 2019:

Migrating to Windows Server 2019 - about upgrading services like Active Directory, DHCP, DNS and files shares to Windows Server 2019. 

Top 5 (or so) Windows Server 2019 features - Windows Admin Center, Storage Migration Services, System Insights and more!  

However, there's only so much information you can fit into a conference session, even at an in-person event.


We are thrilled to tell you about three new instructor-lead courses, developed by Microsoft's Worldwide Learning team in conjunction with our very own Windows Server expert, Orin Thomas.  (He literally wrote a Microsoft Press book on it - Windows Server 2019 Inside Out).
