Microsoft releases new containerised cut of Windows Server


It will have the same footprint as Windows, so now we will have your app running on windows on a container platform which itself will be running on a hypervisor. Really makes sense ?

There is zero chance that the app will take advantage of vertical or horizontal scale, will probably use local storage, be connected to by some SMB or other non-scaleable protocol, etc

The only reason you would want to do this is so that you can ticket the box to say your application is running in a container.
