Last we announced vast improvements to the management and deployment experience for SDN including Windows Admin Center interfaces!  This week we’re excited to announce SDN performance improvements in hybrid connectivity scenarios!

Organizations today deploy their applications across multiple clouds including on-premises private clouds, service provider clouds, and public clouds such as Azure. In such scenarios, enabling secure, high-performance connectivity across workloads in different clouds is essential. Windows Server 2019 brings huge SDN gateway performance improvements for these hybrid connectivity scenarios, with network throughput multiplying by up to 6x!!!
