Microsoft announced the new version of Windows 10; the Windows 10 Pro Workstations, especially for the power users, always working on workstations. This Windows 10 Pro will be available as a part of the Creators Update coming to users this fall. This is not the usual Windows 10 Pro which is available for PCs or laptops; this version is specially tuned for the intensive workloads.
There are lots of new addition to this edition of Windows 10 Pro for workstations. These changes make it the suitable and faster version of Windows 10 Pro for people working on powerful workstations and need the work to be done faster with no slowing down. There are four major changes in this version of Windows 10 Pro for workstations.
Resilient File System enhances the scalability of the workstations; it runs the Microsft’s server grade file system. ReFS is designed for high fault tolerance and handling large data volume at the same time.
Persistent Memory enables the Windows to make the access of the important files faster using the high-end persistent memory hardware configurations.
Faster file sharing also SMB facilitates file sharing between PCs and servers with large datasets with high throughput, low latency, and low CPU usage.
Expanded hardware support makes the Windows 10 Pro handle large workloads with the backing of high-end configurations. It supports high-end server grade processors like the Intel Xeon and AMD Opteron and provides support up to massive 6TB of storage.
Microsoft’s Klaus Diaconu, Partner Group Program Manager, Windows and Devices Group commented on this launch via the blog post,
Users will now be able to run Windows 10 Pro for Workstations on devices with high-performance configurations including server grade Intel Xeon or AMD Opteron processors, with up to 4 CPUs (which is today limited to 2 CPUs) and add massive memory up to 6TB (today limited to 2TB)
It is good news for people still running Windows 10 Pro on their workstations and getting slower working speeds. Now, they can install the new edition of Windows 10 Pro and get better working speeds on their workstations. This version of Windows is also useful for people who want to run their own Windows based server to get better performance.
