Microsoft today has taken the wraps off Windows Server IoT 2019.
Today, we’re pleased to announce the release of Windows Server IoT 2019 to securely handle the largest edge workloads with fixed-function, server-class devices. With full binary compatibility to Windows Server 2019, device manufacturers can build server-class IoT edge devices that enable high-capacity storage and compute scenarios and seamlessly scale between cloud and the edge. For example, imagine network videorecorders or high-end gateways, connecting thousands or even tens of thousands of sensors or devices, then storing, analyzing, and acting on these data streams in near-real-time with reduced latency and bandwidth consumption through utilizing the power of the intelligent edge.
With this edition, Microsoft promises faster time to market, intelligent security, intelligent edge, and full cloud integration.
Additionally, as part of the announcement, the company is also touting its partnership with Qualcomm.
Our partnership with Qualcomm and board providers enables developers to harness the power of the Snapdragon family of processors with Windows 10 IoT Enterprise. Customers gain always-on connectivity and the power management capabilities of Snapdragon, with the full power of Windows 10 IoT Enterprise.
