Exchange Server 2019 can also cache data on solid-state storage for fast access. It will also allocate more memory to active database copies when cacheing data, for improved performance.
Database failovers are faster in Exchange Server 2019, using Bing-based search technology and overall, Microsoft promises that the new version of its communications platform can handle more users per server than before.
On the security side, Microsoft has cleaned out old ciphers and hashing algorithms and Exchange Server 2019 will only use the Transport Layer Security 1.2 protocol out of the box, which might restrict support for legacy systems.
