Azurestack on Windows Nano.

    Question

  • Hi,

    I was wondering why you guys don't customize the devkit to run with windows nano instead of a full blow windows version? (as the hyper-v host)

    Regards,

  • Most likely because infrastructure (hyper-V) roles is not supported on nano server in future releases.

  • Hello Reinout,

    Andreas is correct. The latest version of Nano Server is been enhanced to run as a container runtime image with a 50% smaller footprint to optimize the headless configuration option for deployment of container-based environments.

     

    To accommodate the reduced footprint, infrastructure roles have been depreciated.

     

    We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your time and interest in Azure Stack.

    If you experience any issues with Azure Stack or the current ASDK release, please feel free to contact us.

         

     Thanks
