I don’t know about you, but the management acronym thing has caught me a couple of times, so I thought it might be worth an article giving some context around these things.
With this week’s announcement of Windows Server Nano, the implicit accompanying announcement of .NET Core CLR (the stripped-down version of the .NET runtime that comes with Nano), the announcement of both Windows Server Containers and Hyper-V Containers, and the accompanying announcement that said containers will be manageable by Docker…
Can we take a moment and reflect on this company called Microsoft?
Yesterday, Microsoft announced that Windows Server v.Next will include a “Nano Server” installation option. Nano is described as an incredibly small refactoring of Windows Server – think “Server Core Core” – that has a base OS image size measured in megabytes, and is about 8% the size of a “full” Server install.
So what’s this mean to you?
