Microsoft has opted to enlarge its support for Linux containers in the next release of Windows Server. Linux containers and workloads will work natively on Windows Server, said Erin Chapple, managing director for your server OS, in an on-line post past week. The company also will extend Window Server’s Hyper-V isolation capability, which has been introduced at the 2016 release of the operating system. This means clients will no longer need to deploy two different Container Infrastructure to support both their Windows and Linux based software, Chapple wrote.
What is more, Windows Bash also is coming to the next edition of Windows Server. That is great news for developers. This exceptional combination enables application and developer administrators to work with the very same scripts, tools, processes and container images they’ve been using for Linux containers on their Windows Server tract host, Chapple clarified.
