Breaking Into Windows Server 2019: Network Features: Container Networking with Kubernetes



AskPFEPlat is in the process of a transformation to the new Core Infrastructure and Security TechCommunity, and will be moving by the end of March 2019 to our new home at (hosted at Please bear with us while we are still under construction!

We will continue bringing you the same great content, from the same great contributors, on our new platform. Until then, you can access our new content on either as you do today, or at our new site Please feel free to update your bookmarks accordingly!

Why are we doing this? Simple really; we are looking to expand our team internally in order to provide you even more great content, as well as take on a more proactive role in the future with our readers (more to come on that later)! Since our team encompasses many more roles than Premier Field Engineers these days, we felt it was also time we reflected that initial expansion.

If you have never visited the TechCommunity site, it can be found at On the TechCommunity site, you will find numerous technical communities across many topics, which include discussion areas, along with blog content.

NOTE: In addition to the AskPFEPlat-to-Core Infrastructure and Security transformation, Premier Field Engineers from all technology areas will be working together to expand the TechCommunity site even further, joining together in the technology agnostic Premier Field Engineering TechCommunity (along with Core Infrastructure and Security), which can be found at!

As always, thank you for continuing to read the Core Infrastructure and Security (AskPFEPlat) blog, and we look forward to providing you more great content well into the future!


Happy Wednesday to all of our great readers! Brandon Wilson here once again to give you the last pointer of the series from the Windows Core Networking team covering the top 10 networking features in Windows Server 2019. This time around, they are covering container networking with Kubernetes in Windows Server 2019! Here is some initial information straight from the product group:

Top 10 Networking Features in Windows Server 2019: Container Networking with Kubernetes

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!
