Hyper-V Server 2019 is based on the free version of the Hyper-V role which is available in Windows Server 2019. Compared to Windows Server, it’s footprint is much smaller due to the fact it’s lacking a GUI as you’re probably already familiar with Windows Server Core.

Official description:

Microsoft Hyper-V Server is a free product that delivers enterprise-class virtualization for your datacenter and hybrid cloud. Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2019 provides new and enhanced features that can help you deliver the scale and performance needs of your mission-critical workloads.
The Windows hypervisor technology in Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2019 is the same as what’s in the Microsoft Hyper-V role on Windows Server 2019. It is a stand-alone product that contains only the Windows hypervisor, a Windows Server driver model, and virtualization components. It provides a simple and reliable virtualization solution to help you improve your server utilization and reduce costs.
