Microsoft releases Windows Server IoT 2019 and expanded silicon support for Windows 10 IoT

As IoT solutions have become more complex, you need more computing power, storage and connectivity. To tackle this problem, Microsoft today announced the release of Windows Server IoT 2019. Fixed function appliances using Windows Server IoT 2019 will be able to handle complex workloads like analyzing multiple video streams, store results locally or send to cloud server and more. And they can do it with security, high availability and manageability,

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.

Microsoft today also announced expanded silicon support for Windows 10 IoT. Windows 10 IoT Core can now run on the i.MX 8M and i.MX 8M Mini applications processors while the Windows 10 IoT enterprise now supports Qualcomm Snapdragon processors.

“We are pleased to expand our partnership with Microsoft to bring Azure IoT Edge to our high-performance, multicore i.MX 8M applications processors platform,” says Geoff Lees, senior vice president of microcontrollers at NXP. “With this addition, NXP customers will have access to industry-leading edge computing solutions, from i.MX 6 to i.MX 7 and i.MX 8/8M across Windows 10 IoT Core and Linux operating systems, for advanced industrial and IoT applications, harnessing the full power of Azure in their intelligent edge products.”

“The combination of Qualcomm Technologies’ cutting-edge platforms and Windows 10 IoT Enterprise can enable always-connected, always-on intelligent edge devices to help companies of all sizes and industries deliver on the promise of IoT. We’re excited to support the work of companies like USI, with its SOM 850, and Thundercomm, with its TurboX AI Kit, as they bring their products to commercialization,” said Jeffery Torrance, vice president, business development, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
