Windows Containers


Windows container usage examples


Hi Community,
Are there any real world usage examples on the different types of applications that can be containerized using windows containers?? Can only applications that use Linux kernels be containerized using windows containers or can we containerize apps
that share windows kernels? My client is looking for containerizing his desktop applications like MS office and we would like to know if this can be containerized.
Thanks,
Harish

Considering the fact that containers functionality is still in preview phases, there aren't much info available about it. While looking for information about what apps can be installed in a container, I came across this page:
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/virtualization/windowscontainers/reference/app_compat
I doubt any GUI based application would be supported on containers (those that require local GUI as opposed to web servers which can be remotely accessed via a web browser) because you don't have ability to launch GUI on container images (whether it is nano
server or server core container images). IMO, It will effectively rule out apps like MS office that cannot operate in containers.cheers..uc
