As we march towards the RTM of Windows Server 2016 more and more features are being added to the technical previews. I recently had the opportunity to evaluate a new (to Windows) feature called Containers. This is the next logical step in service hosting/virtualization. While Docker management support has been available as an application for some time now the introduction of containers capability as a core “Role” in Windows Server is huge. As part of an overall DevOps process adding containers support to the Windows/Azure stack raises the bar even higher for .NET Core developers. Over the next few posts I will be publishing basic setup and management processes for Docker on Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview.
