WINDOWS FOR ROBOTS: MICROSOFT REVEALS NEW WINDOWS SERVER IOT 2019
Microsoft has announced the release of Windows Server IoT 2019, its version of Windows for tiny, low-power Internet of Things devices. Windows Server IoT 2019 is the "binary equivalent" to Windows Server 2019 and is designed to help developers who are familiar with building in Windows Server environments. The IoT variant of Windows Server 2019 is exclusive to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and businesses that build products for retail, healthcare, manufacturing, and other industries. It has five years of mainstream support and five years of extended support, employing a licensing model suited to devices that need longer support windows. Microsoft envisages Windows Server 2019 for companies that build network video recorders or high-end gateways that are connected to tons of sensors that feed back in real time to Microsoft Azure cloud for analysis and insights. Last year Microsoft unveiled an experimental release of Robot Operating System (ROS) for Windows, which gave developers tools to use Visual Studio for building robot applications, as well as Microsoft's Azure AI and IoT services.
