Learning Windows Server Containers
- Discover the secret to building highly portable apps that run on any machine with Windows Server 2016 anywhere, from laptops, desktop servers, and public or private clouds, without any changes to the code
- Build your company cost-effective, container-based apps that support large-scale, virtual cloud environments
- The most up-to-date help on the market, offering developers expert guidance in building and shipping high-quality apps, and also helping admins create infrastructure that's simple to maintain
Windows Containers have a great impact on developers and administrators alike: they help them build and ship higher-quality applications in a fast-paced manner and create an infrastructure that is simpler to update and maintain.
Windows Server containers help you run more applications with less infrastructure but providing the same isolation, security, networking, resiliency, and scalability benefits.
Starting with the core fundamentals of Windows Server Containers, this book will help you build and configure the Windows Server 2016 Containers Infrastructure and also show you how to package and deploy ASP.NET Core applications as Microservices in production environments. You will then learn how to optimize resource utilization and enable Continuous Integration and Deployment practices using containerized applications. The book will then teach you to build and deploy container clusters, configuration-driven deployment, container cluster orchestration, scheduling, and management capabilities. This book concludes by showing you how to build modern applications for Microsoft's new, thinnest server operating system called Nano Server.
