OMS Container Solution – Windows Server and Hyper-V Container Support


Hello everyone. This is Keiko. We have heard many requests about supporting Windows Server Container monitoring. Here you go. Today, we are excited to extend the OMS Container solution support to Windows Server and Hyper-V containers.

Last summer, Microsoft expanded OMS to help developers build, run, test, and deploy distributed applications inside Docker containers on Linux. Because containers are lightweight, pared-down virtual machines that can be easily provisioned, developers have created them sporadically as a solution to support continuous delivery. As containers are being used widely in production and are increasing in numbers, container monitoring has become more challenging.

With a single pane of glass, customers can now monitor containers on hybrid clouds and multiple platforms.

With the OMS Container solution, you’ll now be able to:

  • Centralize and correlate millions of logs from Windows Server, Hyper-V, and Docker containers at scale
  • See real-time information about Container status, image, and affinity

View detailed and secure audit trail of all actions on Container hosts

For more information about Windows Server and Hyper-V Container monitoring on OMS, please go to the Container Solution documentation.

Please note that this solution is still in public preview. Performance monitoring for Windows Server and Hyper-V Containers will come soon.

We will be enhancing more monitoring capabilities for containers. If you have feedback or questions, please feel free to contact us!!

How do I try this?

There are a few different routes to give feedback:

Your feedback is most important to us. If you see any features you like that are not here, we like to hear that from you as well.
