Description

Docker containers for Windows might not today have the largest market share among all the Linux options on offer, but they are a compelling new approach in rapidly developing and deploying IT services when Windows Server is your operating system. In this course, Implementing Docker for Windows Containers in Windows Server 2019, you'll introduce Windows containers and the Docker management system for building and running them in a single-server environment. First, you'll explore the management tasks in administering containers and container images. Next, you'll dig deep into the unique configurations required for container networking and data volumes. Finally, you'll build an application using containers that involves connecting a SQL server with an IIS web application. By the end of this course, you'll be armed with the knowledge you need to start building and deploying your own Windows Server containers.

Course Overview
Hey, this is Greg Shields, and you found another of my courses in this learning path on Windows Server 2019, this time on the implementation and use of Docker containers in Windows Server 2019. I am Author Evangelist and a full-time author here at Pluralsight, and while I'm no developer, I am a lifelong IT ops person who's curious about how containers can and will impact IT operations. Docker containers for Windows might not today have the largest market share among all of the Linux options on offer, but they are a compelling new approach in rapidly developing and deploying IT services when Windows Server is your operating system. In this course, we'll introduce Windows containers and the Docker management system for building and running them in a single server environment. Next, we'll explore the management tasks in administering containers and container images. Then, we'll dig deep into the unique configurations required for container networking and data volumes. Finally, we'll build an application using containers that involves connecting SQL Server with an IIS-based web application. By the end of this course, you'll be armed with the knowledge you need to start building and deploying your own Windows Server containers. If you've just been tasked with learning more about Windows containers in Windows Server 2019, this course is your first stop in brushing up on those skills for success. And then from here, you'll be ready to continue on the learning path as you explore additional topics in Windows Server 2019 Administration. Let's get started.
