Docker Platform Management for Windows Containers
Previously I’ve blogged about what Containers and some a little bit about the container ecosystem –> http://msandbu.org/what-is-containers-and-container-ecosystem/ Now lately I’ve been involved in being able to deliver Windows Containers and there lack of container orchestration tools (as of now) Now Windows Container came in Windows Server 2016 & Windows 10 and it is still pretty new. So why? There are plenty of enterprise applications which run for instance .Net based applications or web services and could be converted to a docker container and the same goes for database instances and other smaller services as well so make it easier to scale and deploy.But linux containers has been here a while already, and of course in the container lifecycle management space there are a lot of different vendors in this space. So what does a Container solution deliver in terms of features?
- 1: Universal Management Plane (Across multiple docker hosts)
- 2: Common registry
- 3: An orchestration solution (Swarm, Kubernetes, Marathon)
- 4: Source code management and integration
5: Monitoring / Loggings
6: Persistent Storage configuration
7: Service Discovery
8: Deployment and management of Network
9: Deployment private / public / host
