Container technology is nothing new and with the release of Windows Server 2016, you can now provide Windows Server containers and Hyper-V containers in your own environment. In this course, Implementing Containers on Windows Server 2016, you will learn all about installing and configuring Windows Server container hosts. First, you will be introduced to the concept of containers, and the difference between Windows Server containers and Hyper-V containers. Next, you will dive into deploying and managing containers on Windows Server. Finally, you will delve into managing container networking, and deploying a multi-container application in Azure. By the end of this course, you will have the knowledge and skills necessary to maximize your efforts and meet your enterprises needs.
Course Overview Hey this is Mike Pfeiffer and welcome to this course on Implementing Containers on Windows Server 2016. This is another course in the Windows Server 2016 MCSA learning path, but even if you're not looking to get certified, you'll learn everything that you need to know to get started with Windows-based containers in this course. For the past couple of years, businesses on the bleeding edge of technology have changed the way they build and deploy applications using Linux-based containers. And they've used containers to provide an isolated and portable operating environment that works consistently and repeatedly when deployed in development, staging, or in production. And now with the release of Windows Server 2016, we have native support for Windows-based containers and Microsoft shops can now start to enjoy the benefits of containerized applications as well. In this course, we'll start off with an introduction to container technology and how it's implemented on Windows Server 2016, we'll discuss the fundamentals of containers so you can understand how they work, we'll explore some of the most common use cases, and you'll learn the basics about container hosts, container images, and working with image registries. Next, we'll move on to deploying containers on Windows Server, so you'll learn how to set up a Windows Server 2016 container host running Docker, and you'll see how to deploy containers running Windows Server and Nano Server. We'll also look at the differences between running containers using process isolation versus running containers with Hyper-V based isolation. Then we'll move onto managing containers on Windows Server and you'll learn all about the common management tasks like authoring Docker files to automate and build your own container images, and you'll see how to push and pull images from the Docker Hub. In the last couple of modules, we'll take a look at the basics of Docker networking, and you'll even see how to deploy a container host to Microsoft Azure and deploy a multi-container application using Docker Compose. So whether you're looking to pick up new skills for a project at work, or you're looking to get your MCSA certification, this course will give you the skills that you need to understand the key container concepts on Windows Server 2016.
