For more information, see Changes to Nano Server in the next release of Windows Server and Windows Server, version 1709 for developers.
Check out Project Honolulu for a simplified, integrated, secure experience to help IT administrators manage core troubleshooting, configuration, and maintenance scenarios. Project Honolulu includes next generation tooling with a simplified, integrated, secure, and extensible interface. Project Honolulu includes an intuitive all-new management experience for managing PCs, Windows servers, Failover Clusters, as well as hyper-converged infrastructure based on Storage Spaces Direct, reducing operational costs.
Nano Container and Server Core Container: First and foremost, this release is about driving application innovation. Nano Server, or Nano as Host is deprecated and replaced by Nano Container, which is Nano running as a container image.
For more information about containers, see Container Networking Overview.
Server Core as a container (and infrastructure) host, provides better flexibility, density and performance for existing applications under a modernization process and brands new apps developed already using the cloud model.
VM Load Balancing is also improved with OS and Application awareness, ensuring optimal load balancing and application performance. Storage-class memory support for VMs enables NTFS-formatted direct access volumes to be created on non-volatile DIMMs and exposed to Hyper-V VMs. This enables Hyper-V VMs to leverage the low-latency performance benefits of storage-class memory devices.
Storage-class memory support for VMs enables NTFS-formatted direct access volumes to be created on non-volatile DIMMs and exposed to Hyper-V VMs. This enables Hyper-V VMs to leverage the low-latency performance benefits of storage-class memory devices. Virtualized Persistent Memory (vPMEM) is enabled by creating a VHD file (.vhdpmem) on a direct access volume on a host, adding a vPMEM Controller to a VM, and adding the created device (.vhdpmem) to a VM. Using vhdpmem files on direct access volumes on a host to back vPMEM enables allocation flexibility and leverages a familiar management model for adding disks to VMs.

Container storage – persistent data volumes on cluster shared volumes (CSV). In Windows Server, version 1709 as well as Windows Server 2016 with the latest updates, we’ve added support for containers to access persistent data volumes located on CSVs, including CSVs on Storage Spaces Direct. This gives the application container persistent access to the volume no matter which cluster node the container instance is running on. For more info, see Container Storage Support with Cluster Shared Volumes (CSV), Storage Spaces Direct (S2D), SMB Global Mapping.
Container storage – persistent data volumes with SMB global mapping. In Windows Server, version 1709 we’ve added support for mapping an SMB file share to a drive letter inside a container – this is called SMB global mapping. This mapped drive is then accessible to all users on the local server so that container I/O on the data volume can go through the mounted drive to the underlying file share. For more info, see Container Storage Support with Cluster Shared Volumes (CSV), Storage Spaces Direct (S2D), SMB Global Mapping.
Windows security baselines have been updated for Windows Server and Windows 10. A security baseline is a group of Microsoft-recommended configuration settings and explains their security impact. For more information, and to download the Policy Analyzer tool, see Microsoft Security Compliance Toolkit 1.0.
Network encryption enables you to quickly encrypt network segments on software-defined networking infrastructure to meet security and compliance needs.
Host Guardian Service (HGS) as a shielded VM is enabled. Prior to this release, the recommendation was to deploy a 3-node physical cluster. While this ensures the HGS environment is not compromised by an administrator, it was often cost prohibitive.
Linux as a shielded VM is now supported.
For more information, see Guarded fabric and shielded VMs overview.
Storage Replica: The disaster recovery protection added by Storage Replica in Windows Server 2016 is now expanded to include:
RDS is integrated with Azure AD, so customers can leverage Conditional Access policies, Multifactor Authentication, Integrated authentication with other SaaS Apps using Azure AD, and many more. For more information, see Integrate Azure AD Domain Services with your RDS deployment.
For a sneak peek at other exciting changes coming to RDS, see Remote Desktop Services: Updates & upcoming innovations
Docker’s Routing Mesh is supported. Ingress routing mesh is part of swarm mode, Docker’s built-in orchestration solution for containers. For more information, see Docker’s routing mesh available with Windows Server version 1709.
New features for Docker are available. For more information, see Exciting new things for Docker with Windows Server 1709.
Windows Networking at Parity with Linux for Kubernetes: Windows is now on par with Linux in terms of networking. Customers can deploy mixed-OS, Kubernetes clusters in any environment including Azure, on-premises, and on 3rd-party cloud stacks with the same network primitives and topologies supported on Linux without the need for any workarounds or switch extensions.
Core network stack: Several features of the core network stack are improved. For more information about these features, see Core Network Stack Features in the Creators Update for Windows 10.

Microsoft Azure Container Instances
Containers are quickly becoming the preferred way to package, deploy, and manage cloud applications. Azure Container Instances offers the fastest and simplest way to run a container in Azure, without having to provision any virtual machines and without having to adopt a higher-level service. Azure Container Instances is a great solution for any scenario that can operate in isolated containers, including simple applications, task automation, and build jobs. For scenarios where you need full container orchestration, including service discovery across multiple containers, automatic scaling, and coordinated application upgrades, I recommend the Azure Container Service.
Here you see a quick example of making a Microsoft Azure Container Instance :
You can create an Microsoft Azure Container Instance with the Azure Portal or with Azure Cloud Shell (CLI 2.0)
From the Azure portal, you will create the Azure Container Instance Name, Container Image, Resource Group and Location.
For this quick example I used the public Docker HUB Image WordPress ( https://hub.docker.com/r/library/wordpress/)
Here you set the configuration of the Azure Container Instance, like how many Cores and Memory for the Container.
and Public IP Address yes or no with the port settings.
When you are almost finished in 3 steps, don’t hit OK but have a look at Download Template and Parameters first.
From here you can :
Also have a look here !
It’s really powerful to work with Azure Resource Management Templates.
Deploying the Azure Container Instance with WordPress
Done, just click here to see the running Container Instance
When you go to the IP-Address of the Azure Container Instance with your browser, you will see the WordPress site config.
Of course you can do this installation also from the Azure Cloud Shell :
Here you find an Overview of Microsoft Azure Cloud Shell and the Activation
Azure Cloud Shell is a browser-based shell experience to manage and develop Azure resources. Cloud Shell offers a browser-accessible, pre-configured shell experience for managing Azure resources without the overhead of installing, versioning, and maintaining a machine yourself. Cloud Shell provisions machines on a per-request basis and as a result machine state will not persist across sessions. Since Cloud Shell is built for interactive sessions, shells automatically terminate after 20 minutes of shell inactivity.
|Linux shell interpreter||Bash
|Azure tools||Azure CLI 2.0 and 1.0
|Containers||Docker CLI/Docker Machine
Cloud Foundry CLI
|Python||2.7 and 3.5 (default)|
Cloud Shell securely and automatically authenticates account access for the Azure CLI 2.0.
Since Cloud Shell is allocated on a per-request basis using a temporary machine, files outside of your $Home and machine state are not persisted across sessions. To persist files across sessions, Cloud Shell walks you through attaching an Azure file share on first launch. Once completed Cloud Shell will automatically attach your storage for all future sessions.
