Containers for Developers
From a developer’s desktop to a testing machine to a set of production machines, a Docker image can be created that will deploy identically across any environment in seconds. This story has created a massive and growing ecosystem of applications packaged in Docker containers, with DockerHub, the public containerized-application registry that Docker maintains, currently publishing more than 180,000 applications in the public community repository.
When you containerize an app, only the app and the components needed to run the app are combined into an “image”. Containers are then created from this image as you need them. You can also use an image as a baseline to create another image, making image creation even faster. Multiple containers can share the same image, which means containers start very quickly and use fewer resources. For example, you can use containers to spin up light-weight and portable app components – or ‘micro-services’ – for distributed apps and quickly scale each service separately.
Because the container has everything it needs to run your application, they are very portable and can run on any machine that is running Windows Server 2016. You can create and test containers locally, then deploy that same container image to your company’s private cloud, public cloud or service provider. The natural agility of Containers supports modern app development patterns in large scale, virtualized and cloud environments.
With containers, developers can build an app in any language. These apps are completely portable and can run anywhere – laptop, desktop, server, private cloud, public cloud or service provider – without any code changes.
Containers helps developers build and ship higher-quality applications, faster.
- One computer system (physical or virtual) running Windows Server 2016.
- Configure this system with the Windows Container feature and Docker. For a walkthrough on these steps, see Windows Containers on Windows Server.
- QuickStart Windows Containers on Windows 10
- A Docker ID, this will be used to push a container image to Docker Hub. If you do not have a Docker ID, sign up for one at Docker Cloud.
Windows Containers Infrastructure
Microsoft Windows Container with Nano server :
Docker pull microsoft/nanoserver
Docker run -t -I microsoft/nanoserver
Now you are inside the Windows Container on the Nano Server
If you want a Windows Container with Nano Server and IIS running for a website checkout this Docker Pull

Docker run reference
Docker runs processes in isolated containers. A container is a process which runs on a host. The host may be local or remote. When an operator executes
docker run, the container process that runs is isolated in that it has its own file system, its own networking, and its own isolated process tree separate from the host.
Containers can run anywhere !
Gain hands-on experience with the new version of Windows Server in security, software-defined datacenter and containers, using the latest virtual labs.
Guided labs make it easy to check out what’s new without spending time and money to install and configure an environment. Using the virtual labs for Windows Server 2016 you can learn about what the new technology does and how to configure it. It’s not a video, a demo you watch, or a simulator; it’s you connecting with your browser, on your PC, to our lab for free.
When you sign in with your Microsoft account you’ll be able to access any of the individual labs in a private, sandboxed environment. It all adds up to about 6 hours of content, and you can come back later if you need to.
Check out each of these 60-minute experiences:
- Breach resistant security and Shielded VMs
- Storage Spaces Direct
- Nano Server
- Windows Server and Hyper-V Containers
- Failover clustering and rolling cluster upgrades

Containers include the application and all of its dependencies –but share the kernel with other containers, running as isolated processes in user space on the host operating system. Docker containers are not tied to any specific infrastructure: they run on any computer, on any infrastructure, and in any cloud.
Monitoring your Containers with Microsoft Operations Management Suite for Hybrid IT Management :
Microsoft MAP Toolkit 9.6
The Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit (MAP) is an agentless, automated, multi-product planning and assessment tool for quicker and easier desktop, server and cloud migrations. MAP provides detailed readiness assessment reports and executive proposals with extensive hardware and software information, and actionable recommendations to help organizations accelerate their IT infrastructure planning process, and gather more detail on assets that reside within their current environment. MAP also provides server utilization data for Hyper-V server virtualization planning; identifying server placements, and performing virtualization candidate assessments. More information about MAP Toolkit can you find here
- Operating system. Any of the following:
- Windows 10 (Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate editions only)
- Windows 8.1 (Professional and Enterprise editions only)
- Windows 8 (Professional and Enterprise editions only)
- Windows 7 with Service Pack 1 (Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate editions only)
- Windows Server 2012 R2
- Windows Server 2012
- Windows Server 2016
- Windows Server 2008 R2 with Service Pack 1
- .NET Framework 4.5 (download from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=389161)
- Installation of all updates for the operating system. Note: In some cases updates may not install automatically. To download updates for your computer manually, go to http://update.microsoft.com/.
- By default, the MAP Toolkit will install SQL Server 2012 Express LocalDB during setup. You may also use an existing installation of SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 R2, or SQL Server 2012 if you create an instance named “MAPS” before running the MAP Toolkit installer. The MAP Toolkit requires the collation order of the database engine to be set to “SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS”.
- Some of these prerequisites require restarting your computer. You may have to restart multiple times if all the prerequisites are not met prior to running Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit setup.
- For machines that will be used to run the Forefront Endpoint Protection Usage Tracking, Lync Usage Tracking, Exchange Server Usage Tracking, or Volume Licensing scenarios, please note: PowerShell 2.0 or higher must be installed.
- For machines that will be used to collect Oracle schema information, please note: The 64 bit Oracle client must be installed on the MAP machine to collect the schema information. If the 64 bit client is not installed, MAP will only be able to collect instance information. MAP will not collect schema information if the 32 bit Oracle client is installed.
