Introducing Windows Server 2025!

Today, we are thrilled to announce the official name of the next release of Windows Server, Windows Server 2025. Windows Server 2025 is driven by your feedback and your desire to embrace a hybrid, adaptive cloud. Here are a few areas we’re investing in:

  • Windows Server Hotpatching for everyone
  • Next Generation Active Directory and SMB
  • Mission Critical Data & Storage
  • Hyper-V & AI
  • And much more…

Today, we’re also releasing a new Windows Server Insider Build (v.26040) with the updated name, and there are a couple screenshots below. Sound interesting? Want to learn more? Here are some resources.

If you haven’t joined Windows Server Insider Program, there’s no better time than now! We release new builds every ~two weeks, and many new features are already in. Some features are still on the way, and when they land, you’ll hear about it through the Insider Program. Join the Windows Server Insider Program here:
