Microsoft to release Windows 10 Pro for Workstations

If you haven't noticed yet, Microsoft has been pushing people to upgrade their computers from Windows 7 and 8 to Windows 10. Not too long ago they were giving it away for free as an upgrade via Windows Update and many people got Windows 10 without even knowing it until it was too late but that's a whole other story.

Now that Windows 10 is in full swing and being used more and more, Microsoft has decided they needed to change things up again with a new version of Windows 10 called Windows 10 Pro for Workstations. Keep in mind there is already a Professional version of Windows 10 which you would assume you would use at the office to join your Windows domain etc.

The Windows 10 Pro for Workstations edition will offer more advanced features that the regular Windows 10 Professional edition has. The goal is to make a Windows 10 operating system that is designed for corporate use that can handle higher workloads and more advanced hardware configurations including support for up to 4 CPUs as well as Xeon and Opteron processors. There will also be support for 6TB of RAM compared to 2TB that is currently supported.

Other new features will include ReFS (Resilient File System) support which is looking to be the replacement for NTFS (New Technology File System) in the future to help out with performance and data corruption. There will also be something called Workstation Mode which optimizes Windows performance for intensive compute workloads when its enabled. Another feature Microsoft is including is the SMBDirect protocol for file sharing which improves performance when accessing network shares.

Windows 10 Pro for Workstations is still in the works but is expected to be out soon. We have not heard anything about pricing but it will most likely be more expensive than the regular Windows 10 Pro but we are sure there will be volume licensing available to help bring the cost down.
