Updated on October 12, 2018: We have temporarily removed all media for Windows Server 2019 and Windows Server, version 1809. We have also paused the rollout of the latest feature update to Windows 10 inclusive of versions 1809, as we are investigating isolated reports of users missing some files after updating. If you have already downloaded media, please don’t install it and wait until more information is available to proceed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We will provide an update when refreshed media is available. For reference, we also have a support article with additional information.
It’s hard to believe Ignite 2018 is now behind us. Last week at Ignite, we announced Windows Server 2019 and talked about the new hybrid, security, application platform, and hyper-converged infrastructure capabilities. Today, we are making it available for download.
If you are a Windows Server customer with valid Software Assurance, you can download Windows Server 2019 on the Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC). You can also download the evaluation version of Windows Server 2019 at the Evaluation Center.
For customers running Windows Server on Azure, Windows Server 2019 is also available in the Azure Marketplace. Later in October, we’ll be adding Windows Server 2019 to Visual Studio Subscription (former MSDN) and other portals, such as the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN).

With the release of a new version of Windows Server, it’s time to learn about what’s new and try it out. At Ignite, we had tons of sessions and those are available for you on demand. If you want to go deeper on the details, you can find the updated documentation in the Windows Server technical content library.
If you are upgrading from an older version, you can check the new Upgrade Center, where you can find useful information on the upgrade process, as well as pre and post activities.
For those of you already looking ahead, join the Insiders program. We will continue to ship new builds of Windows Server that will first land on the next Semi-Annual Channel and later in the next Long-Term Servicing Channel.
We can’t wait to see what you’ll do with Windows Server 2019! Download it today!
