Docker Support for Windows Server 2016 Hits General Availability

Docker has announced that after two years of work on the project, its support for Windows Server 2016 has achieved general availability status. That means enterprises can feel confident using the open source containerization technology on their Windows production servers.

“Windows Server 2016 users can start up Docker as a Windows Server container, which is analogous to a Linux container, where multiple containers benefit from a shared kernel,” Scott Johnston, chief operating officer at Docker Inc., said. “Or the container can be started as a Hyper-V container, which provides isolation benefits as well as a dedicated Windows kernel for a particular container.”

In addition, thanks to a commercial support and distribution agreement with Microsoft, all Windows Server 2016 customers can get access to the commercially supported version of Docker for free.
