Windows Server Summit has been an annual virtual event for the past three years. While it was one of the most popular virtual events for our part of the business, each year we got feedback that people wanted more demos and deeper technical content. This year, those wishes are coming true! Our robust schedule (to be released) spans three days and allows viewers to join for specific segments that are most relevant to them. We’ve also included some non-Microsoft speakers to provide their unique take on the content.

All Windows Server Summit sessions are presented by Microsoft engineering teams and technical leaders from Intel® as well as our expert Microsoft MVPs. Here are some examples of what you can expect from this event:

Windows Server 2025 preview

Did you catch the Microsoft Ignite 2024 session with Jeff Woolsey and Elden Christensen in matching purple shirts? That was still early days—there is more to share! At the Windows Server Summit, Elden will provide an overview of all the new features and improvements you can expect to see when Windows Server 2025 is released in late 2024.

Did you know that while you are playing Xbox at home, the team supporting the backend services uses Hotpatch? Find out how they do it in our session with Vishal Baja and Viraj Desai from Windows engineering and Tim Dreyling from Xbox networking teams.

Is software defined networking (SDN) your thing? You won’t want to miss Cindy Wan, Anirban Paul, Kyle Bisnett, and Samuel Liu of the SDN team for their demo bash session—including how to use upcoming Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS) and network security enhancements.

Are you looking for ways to prepare for AI? Afia Boakye and Nicole Bourain from the core operating system (OS) virtualization team will dive into new features in the Windows Server and Azure Stack HCI covering GPU failover clustering and new GPU partitioning (GPU-P) for GPU virtualization.

Security and hardening Windows Server

What are your thoughts on NTLM? Join Zak Whittington, Program Manager for Windows Authentication, and Steve Syfuhs, Principal Software Engineer, as they walk you through the evolution of Windows Authentication with Windows Server 2025 updates to NTLM and Kerberos improvement.

Eric Woodruff, Security MVP, is sharing his expertise with sessions on taking steps to secure Windows Server Active Directory with the Security Compliance Toolkit and Center for Internet Security (CIS) Benchmarks as well as a session specific to protecting your server from management plane attacks.

Microsoft understands not every server is running the latest version of Windows Server. Still, keeping your servers secure is vital. Join Principal Product Managers Poornima Priyadarshini and Jason Leznek to learn how Azure Arc extends the Azure control plane to on-premises servers and take advantage of Extended Security Updates (ESUs) on a flexible monthly billing model with keyless activation.

Windows Server hybrid and cloud

Are you running Windows Server on-premises or at the edge? Learn how you can leverage Azure automation, PowerShell, run command, and many other Azure management solutions for your on-premises Windows Servers. Thomas Maurer, Senior Program Manager and Chief Evangelist Azure Hybrid, and Ryan Willis, Product Manager for Azure Arc, will share how to automate your on-premises Windows Server from the cloud using Azure Arc.

Upgrades and migrations

Want to understand the details of Windows Server upgrade and update processes? We have the core team responsible front and center to walk you through the “how” and “when” of updates—including the upgrade path from Windows Server 2018 to Windows Server 2025.

Gregor Reimling is a rare, dual category MVP in Azure and Security. He will share his best practices for a successful Azure migration starting with the Cloud Adoption Framework (CAF) and look at the Azure Migrate and Modernize program.

Windows Server best practices

Fady Azmy, Program Manager for Windows Server, and Vinicius Apolinario, Senior Cloud Advocate, will share practical strategies and best practices for using containers to boost efficiency and simplify deployment while maximizing resource utilization for Windows Server applications.

Interested in host networking on the edge? Join Basel Kablawi, Product Manager for network data plane, and Anirban Paul, Principal Product Manager, as they share what’s new and exciting in networking for Windows Server, highlighting Network ATC, Network HUD, and Accelerated Networking.
