Docker Daemon for Windows

I want to explore Docker development targeting Windows containers. I understand Microsoft has put out the Tech Preview for Server 2016, but am wondering if there are other options for Docker containers running on Windows?

  • Kubernetes NodePort custom port
  • Docker : Can a container A call an executable located on an other container B?
  • Not able to access Kibana running in a Docker container on port 5601
  • 500 Error: TypeError (no implicit conversion of nil into String):
  • Neo4j 2.3.2 to cloud foundry
  • PHP websie, mysql, rabbitMQ on Docker
  • debug docker deamon with gdb or cgdb
  • Docker: Set value of ENV variable using RUN command?
  • Setting absolute limits on CPU for Docker containers
  • Attaching a Docker Container automatically to an IP Address/DNS
  • Printing from inside a docker container
  • Kafka Endless NotLeaderForPartitionException for ReplicaFetcherThread

    No, there are not (well, unless you consider boot2docker an option). Original Docker containers are built upon LXC, which is a Linux technology. Microsoft had to implement some new APIs for Windows Server 2016 that Docker can wrap to make Windows Docker containers run on Windows Server 2016.

    To develop Windows containers, you can do any of the following:

    • Run containers directly on Windows 10
    • Run a WS2016 VM on Windows 10 and develop with that
    • Run WS2016 bare metal or on Azure
    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
