An overview of the most important Microsoft Exchange Server 2019 innovations
New and improved technologies, features, and services in the latest Windows Server editions now better help users and organizations shift the focus of their work from communication to collaboration. As a result, Exchange Server 2019 also helps lower total cost of ownership - by deploying Exchange Server applications, both on-premises and in the cloud.
In addition, there is improved performance, increased security in protecting against attackers, and enhanced management capabilities for server administrators.
Exchange Server 2019 runs on Windows Server 2019 Core, making it one of the most secure and reliable platforms for your organization's messaging infrastructure.
The innovations in Microsoft Exchange Server 2019 benefit both end users and administrators:
Meta Cache Database (MCDB)
Exchange 2019 offers organizations the ability to use Meta Cache Database when running their own physical server with SSD drives. This automation script backs up meta information such as a mailbox's folder structure and speeds up both access and search. To do this, it allows administrators to make room for more users in a server instance. The use of MCDB thus helps to reduce costs.
Dynamic Database Cache (DDC)
Dynamic Database Cache in Server Exchange 2019 allows storage capacity to be dynamically adjusted to the situation at hand. This allows better use of the available storage capacity, even if the number of active databases changes, and also gives the Exchange Server greater speed.
In Exchange Server 2019, the search index has been completely reorganized. While it was previously separate from the database of a mailbox in previous versions, it is now located directly there. This innovation has two key advantages: First, administration is greatly simplified, and second, search speed is increased.
Windows Server Core
With Windows Server Core, Exchange Server Edition allows all administrators to simplify the standard version of the server system. The simpler design makes configuration easier, and unneeded services that consume resources can be neutralized. In addition, Windows Server Core also offers greater security, because on the one hand it has fewer points of attack for intruders, and on the other hand the risk of introducing security-threatening bugs is significantly reduced.
Client Access Rules
The new Exchange version gives administrators more advanced options for limiting access to the server configuration area with Client Access Rules. This affects not only the Admin Center itself, but also PowerShell, which is responsible for configuring, managing and automating systems.
Admins can use the current Client Access Rules to control a connection to Exchange based on an IP address, a specific authentication type and user properties - even country- or region-specific - and, if necessary, block it directly through the server without having to rely on a firewall. Likewise, with Client Access Rules, they can allow defined users to use PowerShell for a specified period of time.
With the Exchange 2019 release, the end user benefits in particular from new practical features that affect the calendar, here especially the organization of meetings:
- Default End Date. This feature concerns the organization of recurring meetings to a reasonable number.
- Do Not Forward. This feature allows the organizer to prevent meeting participants from forwarding requests to other recipients.
- Improved Calendar Management. This allows administrators to cancel meetings organized by a person who, for example, is going on vacation or has left the company.
- Configuration of out-of-office messages now includes three additional options: Block own calendar for a certain period of time; Reject all meeting requests sent during a certain period of time; Reject all meeting requests sent during this period of time.
- Calendar - Remove-CalendarEvents cmdlet: Allows administrators to cancel meetings organized by a user who has left the company.
- Assigning a proxy permission via PowerShell: This feature allows administrators to assign proxy permissions.
- Internationalization of email addresses (EAI): This allows email addresses that contain non-English characters to be forwarded or transmitted.
Improved collaboration on documents
The new server version also includes the ability to upload and save files to OneDrive for Business, taking into account both local and online files in the list of recently used files.
Features no longer supported in Exchange 2019
With the new Server edition, some old familiar features of the previous Exchange versions are also no longer supported.
With Exchange Server 2019, Microsoft no longer offers the Unified Messaging (UM) service. Instead, Skype for Business is now available, which has a comparable feature set. Businesses can then use it to switch to cloud voicemail.
The 2019 version only supports the TLS protocol from version 1.2 and thus offers more security in the encryption protocol.
System requirements for Windows Exchange Server 2019
The successful installation of Exchange Server 2019 requires certain prerequisites of network, hardware, software as well as clients. In addition, certain coexistence scenarios with previous versions of Exchange may also need to be observed to ensure smooth operation.
Microsoft Outlook is recommended for client communication. As browsers, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Safari are supported in addition to Internet Explorer 11 and Microsoft Edge.
Hardware requirements for Exchange Server 2019
To ensure that the new Exchange version can be used without any problems, the PC should have 64-bit processors from either Intel or AMD, as well as provide 200 MB of free space on the system drive; in addition, 500 MB of free memory is required on the drive with Message Queue Database.
Coexistence scenarios supported by Exchange 2019
Exchange 2019 partially supports earlier versions of Exchange, such as hybrid deployments with all Office 365 clients upgraded to the latest Office 365 version. The Hybrid Configuration Wizard (HCW) from Exchange Server 2013 used for hybrid configuration is converted to a cloud-based application in this case.
Further supported are the following Domain Name System (DNS) namespaces: contiguous; non-contiguous; separate as well as single-part domains.
