In today’s increasingly competitive and fast-paced technology market, enterprises are constantly discovering amazing new ways to innovate and evolve. One such area with expanding interest in recent years is application modernization using containers and container orchestration.

As applications are lifted-and-shifted from VMs to containers, IT Pros and Dev Ops teams require the same network management agility of Software-Defined Datacenter (SDDC). Kubernetes, the de facto container orchestration tool, addresses this gap under the umbrella of a standardized & open-sourced framework. Now, with Windows Server 2019, we greatly improved usability of Kubernetes on Windows by enhancing platform networking resiliency and support of container networking plugins.

As always, if you have comments or questions on the post, your most direct path for questions will be in the link above.

Thanks for reading, and we’ll see you again soon!
