Windows Server Containers – How we got here and architecture deep dive

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Porting Docker for Windows is no small feat.  The technology behind Docker today takes advantage of Linux capabilities like namespaces and cgroups.  For native containers to exist on Windows and to have a Docker Engine for Windows, first similar primitives needed to be developed into the Windows operating system.  In this session we will explain these Windows primitives in relation to similar primitives in Linux and other architectural changes on the OS and Engine side to make containerization possible.  The process of porting includes not only the technology but also open source community interactions and cultural changes to enable this development.  And of course there will be a cool demo…
