Exchange Server 2019 runs on Windows Server 2019 Core, making it one of the most secure and reliable platforms for your company's messaging infrastructure.
Both end users and administrators benefit from the new features of Microsoft Exchange Server 2019:
Meta Cache Database (MCDB)
Exchange 2019 offers companies the possibility to use the Meta Cache Database when operating their own physical server with SSD drives. This automation script secures meta-information such as the folder structure of a mailbox and accelerates both access and search. It also enables administrators to create space for more users in a server instance. The use of MCDB therefore helps to reduce costs.
Dynamic Database Cache (DDC)
The Dynamic Database Cache in Server Exchange 2019 enables dynamic adjustment of the storage capacity to the respective situation. As a result, the available storage capacity can be used more efficiently, even if the number of active databases changes, and the Exchange Server is also faster.
In Exchange Server 2019, the search index has been completely reorganized. While it was previously separated from the database of a mailbox in previous versions, it is now located directly there. This innovation has two decisive advantages: On the one hand, the administration is considerably simplified, on the other hand, the search speed is increased.
Windows Server Core
With the Windows Server Core, the Exchange Server Edition enables all administrators to run the standard version of the server system in a simplified manner. The simpler design makes configuration easier, and unneeded services that consume resources can be neutralized. In addition, Windows Server Core also offers greater security, as it has fewer points of attack for intruders on the one hand, and on the other hand the risk of installing bugs that threaten security is significantly reduced.
client access rules
The new Exchange version gives administrators with the Client Access Rules extended possibilities to limit access to the configuration area of the servers. This not only affects the Admin Center itself, but also PowerShell, which is responsible for the configuration, administration and automation of systems.
Admins can use the latest client access rules to control a connection to Exchange based on an IP address, authentication type, and user properties-even country or region-specific-and block it directly through the server if necessary without the need for a firewall. They can also use Client Access Rules to allow defined users to use PowerShell for a specified period of time.
With the Exchange 2019 version, the end user will benefit from new practical functions concerning the calendar, especially the organization of meetings:
- Default End Date. This function concerns the organization of recurring meetings to a reasonable number.
- Do Not Forward. The organizer can use this function to prevent meeting participants from forwarding requests to other recipients.
- Improved Calendar Management. Allows administrators to cancel meetings that were organized by a person who, for example, has gone on vacation or left the company.
- The configuration of out-of-office messages now contains three additional options: Block my calendar for a specific time period; Reject all meeting requests sent during a specific time period; Reject all meeting requests sent during this time period.
- Calendar - Remove-CalendarEvents cmdlet: Allows administrators to cancel meetings that were organized by a user who left the company.
- Assigning a proxy via PowerShell: This feature allows administrators to assign proxy permissions.
- Internationalization of e-mail addresses (EAI): This allows e-mail addresses containing non-English characters to be forwarded or transmitted.
Improved document collaboration
The new server version also includes the ability to upload and store files on OneDrive for Business, with local and online files included in the list of recently used files.
Features no longer supported in Exchange 2019
With the new server edition, some of the well-known features of previous Exchange versions are no longer supported.
With the Exchange Server 2019 Microsoft no longer offers the Unified Messaging (UM) service. Instead, Skype for Business is now available, which has a comparable range of functions. Companies can then use it to switch to cloud voicemail.
The 2019 version only supports the TLS protocol from version 1.2 on and thus offers more security for the encryption protocol.
System requirements for Windows Exchange Server 2019
The successful installation of Exchange Server 2019 requires certain network, hardware, software and client requirements. In addition, certain coexistence scenarios with earlier versions of Exchange may also need to be taken into account to ensure smooth operation.
Microsoft Outlook is recommended for client communication. In addition to Internet Explorer 11 and Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Safari are also supported as browsers.
Hardware requirements for Exchange Server 2019
To ensure that the new version of Exchange can be used without problems, the PC should have 64-bit processors from either Intel or AMD, 200 MB of free space on the system drive, and 500 MB of free space on the Message Queue Database drive.
Coexistence scenarios supported by Exchange 2019
Exchange 2019 partially supports earlier versions of Exchange, such as hybrid deployments with all Office 365 clients that have been updated to the latest Office 365 version. The Hybrid Configuration Wizard (HCW) from Exchange Server 2013 that is used for hybrid configuration is transformed into a cloud-based application.
The following DNS (Domain Name System) namespaces are also supported: Contiguous; Non-Contiguous; Separate and One-Piece Domains.
