Need for an architectural point of view about Containers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Currently, the vast majority of information about Windows containers are focused on configuration steps.

    That's for sure really practical, but I would like to underline the need to also have information about Windows containers architecture from a storage, compute and network perspectives.

    Getting pictures out of PowerShell commands, is perhaps not the best way in the learning curve to master a subject.

    Do you also would like that Microsoft introduces Windows Container concepts from an architectural and design point of view ?

  • We are also interested in  detailed container capabilities, because we prefer to run apps in containers rather than in VMs.

    * What's the capabilities for legacy Win32 applications, such as Services, GUI support, DirectX technology and so on.

    * The requirements for installers, i found most installer could not be run in containers due to lack of components . So, we want to know the difference between installing an application on 'normal' system and container. 

    * The capability or requirements for drivers.

    ....  

    We know that it's still in TP stage and many features are under developing, so, what we need is something like a basic guideline. Then, we can seek the possibility for migrating our apps into containers instead of VMs.  Thanks !
