Hyper-V Containers bringing speed and scale to the next level in today’s cloud-first world

April 9, 2015 Leave a comment

Last October, Microsoft and Docker, Inc. jointly announced plans to bring containers to developers across the Docker and Windows ecosystems via Windows Server.

Hyper-V Containers will ensure code running in one container remains isolated and cannot impact the host operating system or other containers running on the same host. Applications developed for Windows Server Containers can be deployed as a Hyper-V Container without modification, providing greater flexibility for operators who need to choose degrees of density, agility, and isolation in a multi-platform, multi-application environment.

The new Microsoft Container technology offers flexibility and choice through Windows Server containers, Linux containers, and Hyper-V containers both in the cloud and on-premises.

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.
