Nano Server for Modern Apps and Cloud in vNext: You better know PowerShell.

April 9, 2015 Leave a comment

Exciting news!

Microsoft Announces Nano Server for Modern Apps and Cloud in vNext. Nano Server won’t have a separated SKU, it will be an installation option during Windows Server vNext deployment.

Nano Server is a deeply refactored version of Windows Server with a small footprint and remotely managed installation, optimized for the cloud and a DevOps workflow.

There is no local logon or Remote Desktop support. All management is performed remotely via WMI and PowerShell.

Nano Server focuses on two scenarios:

  1. Born-in-the-cloud applications – support for multiple programming languages and runtimes. (e.g. C#, Java, Node.js, Python, etc.) running in containers, virtual machines, or on physical servers.
  2. Microsoft Cloud Platform infrastructure – support for compute clusters running Hyper-V and storage clusters running Scale-out File Server

To hear more about Nano Server, come to our sessions at BUILD and Ignite or watch them on Channel 9 after the show.
