Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview now includes containers

Curated by

 

MICROSOFT HAS ANNOUNCED the latest Technical Preview for Windows Server 2016 and Windows System Centre 2016. Technical Preview 3 is another opportunity for intrepid IT managers to try out the new features of Microsoft’s flagship server product and provide feedback. Microsoft delivers preview builds for Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 as the rumor mill leaks news of a massive October hardware launch. The company has already signed up to the forthcoming container standardisation model being put forward by the Linux Foundation, so expect to see compatibility with Docker and its ilk.

 

 

  • On the update front, Microsoft has confirmed it will only provide explanation for what it considers significant cumulative updates for Windows 10. This comes shortly after Microsoft released update batch KB3081424 and was decidedly vague about the fixes it contained.
  • Being the new, open, groovy company it is, running away from past proprietary po-faced-ness and looking to the future, Microsoft said in an enthusiastic blog post : “As we deliver our 2016 wave of hybrid and data centre solutions, we’re working to give you the tools and resources you need to bring the agility of cloud computing to your own organisation.
  • Also new are some front-of-house tweaks, including a virtual machine manager with support for rolling upgrades and cluster nodes, and support for Nano server as the host and the file server.
