BRK3146: Dive into the new world of Windows Server and Hyper-V Containers

Applications need to be always available, globally accessible, scalable and secure in today’s 24/7 economy. Businesses must be able to deploy rapid updates and revisions at a lower cost with fewer resources than ever before to be competitive. Containers are an amazingly powerful technology for building, deploying and hosting applications that have been proven to reduce costs, improve efficiency and reduce deployment times – making it a hot new feature in Windows Server 2016. We dive into the architecture features of the new container technology, talk about development and deployment experiences and best practices, along with some of the new Windows innovations such as Hyper-V Containers and Active Directory backed container identity.

Speakers: Taylor Brown, Microsoft & Patrick Lang, Microsoft

Thursday, September 29, 9:00am – 10:15am, Room A1

BRK3147: Accelerate application delivery with Docker Containers and Windows Server 2016

Applications are changing and Docker is driving the containerization movement to deliver new microservices applications or provide a new construct to package legacy applications. Attend this session to learn how the combination of Docker, Linux, Microsoft Windows Server and Microsoft Azure technologies together deliver an application platform for hybrid cloud apps. Accelerate your app delivery and gain freedom to use any stack across a secure software supply chain.

Speakers: Mike Coleman, Docker & Taylor Brown, Microsoft

Thursday, September 29, 12:30pm – 1:45pm, Room A411 – A412

BRK3319: The Path to Containerization – transforming workloads into containers

Containers, micro-services and Docker are all the rage but what workloads are they used for? And how can you take advantage of these transformative new technologies? In this session you will hear from a user that has succeeded in taking their existing .Net application and migrated it into Windows containers proving them the agility and flexibility to further transform the application. But where do I start with containers? We will further cover concepts and best practices for identifying and migrating applications from existing deployments into containers and how to start down the path to microservice architectures.

Speakers: Taylor Brown, Microsoft & Matthew Roberts, Microsoft
