Just seen the announcement about the Essentials SKU and apparent removal of the Essentials Role https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/windowsserver/2018/09/05/windows-server-2019-essentials-update/. Although I can understand much of the rationale here, the removal (if my assumptions are correct) of the excellent Client Backup capability which is both very fast and network efficient for image backups and space-efficient on the server is a major loss for the smaller SMEs and larger Home users. It would be really good if this capability could be separated out as a new role for Server 2019, allowing those using this to move to the latest server with all of its advantages without losing the Client Backup capability.
